Today we went back in the time of our childhood. We visited Popeye Village in Anchor bay. Anchor bay was named after anchors from Roman times that were once washed up on the shore. It is an artificial village, which was built in the eighties for the purpose of Hollywood movie about the Popeye. A few years ago, you had to walk all the way to here for about 2 kilometres from the city centre, but today the local bus drives you right to the door on the newly opened road. Admission fee for adults is € 14, included swimming, a children’s pool with a playground, a glass of punch and a shorter 15-minute “trip” with the boat.
We had a very relaxed, but abnormally hot day. A charming village in the marine style has everything they need… from the post office, city hall, shops, bar and of course the house of the three main characters from the movie – Popeye, Olive and Bluto. It is nice to be back in the children’s days and watch the scenery of your favourite cartoon, which you followed on television.
