close to the museum and the archaeological site: Souvenir shop
A nice souvenir shop situated on the distance of 2 kilometers from the Sanctuary. Our bus has made there a half-hour stop.
While other tourists went shopping I used this time to admire gift goods which almost all in some extent connected with ancient and mythological Greece.
If I had a giant suitcase and a huge house with a plenty of rooms, cupboards, wardrobes, bookcases and shelves, I would buy much what I have seen in this shop. But as the place in a suitcase is limited, my apartment in Moscow is rather small, and shelves are filled by souvenirs from the previous trips, I have refrained from purchases.

in a souvenir shop: Pottery manufacture
The visit to the shop has begun with small cognitive excursion. A local master has shown us manufacturing techniques of a clay vase. Our guide Konstantin has very fascinatingly told us how these vases had been painted and pictured, what figures and form of a vase or a cup mean.
Some tourists tried to work with a potter's wheel and produced a vase of their own. A boy was very glad when he took his own crooked vase. I think impressions about this pottery will be remembered for a long time.
