Museum of Asian Art in Corfu
Hi my lovely readers! Today is Monday and it's perfect time to tell you how I spent my weekend. I've visited one special and unique place in Kerkyra - The Museum of Asian Art. It's a museum in the Palace of St. Michael and St. George. It's the only museum in Greece dedicated to the art of Asia, it has collections of Chinese, Japanese and Indian art. The palace was built by Sir Thomas Maitland, the British Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands. It served as the High Commissioner's residence, but was also the home of the Ionian Senate and the Order of St Michael and St George.
I can tell that it's really very beautiful place, it has own unique atmosphere and gorgeous design. There is also charming garden in the back of palace. The palace gardens, complete with old Venetian stone aquariums, exotic trees and flowers, overlook the bay through old Venetian fortifications and turrets. The local sea baths are at the foot of the fortifications surrounding the gardens. A café on the grounds includes its own art gallery, with exhibitions of both local and international artists. It is locally known as the Art Café. From the same spot, the viewer can observe ships passing through the narrow channel of the historic Vido island to the north, on their way to Corfu harbour, with high speed retractable aerofoil ferries from Igoumenitsa cutting across the panorama. A wrought-iron aerial staircase is also to be found, closed to garden visitors, descending to the sea from the gardens, and formerly used by the Greek Royal Family as a shortcut to the baths. Rewriting history, locals now refer to the old Royal Gardens as the "Garden of the People".
For visit museum and walk in royal garden I was wearing gentle and comfortable pink top with high waist floral embroidery jeans from Zaful. The jeans is absolutely stunning: so comfortable and beautiful in one. It has excellent quality and is suitable for any season.
From up I was wearing charming and cozy cardigan from Sammydress. It has soft and warm material, very good quality and nice color. BTW the other colors of the cardigan are black, grey and red.
