Rhodes is a beautiful island in the Dodecanese island complex in Greece, in the Southeastern part of the Aegean Sea. It is the largest of the Dodecanese islands and is also the island group’s historical capital. The name of the island comes from the ancient Greek Rhódon (rose) and is sometimes called the island of roses. Rhodes attracts many tourists since the beginning of the tourism industry in Greece, which elevated the economy of the island. Even Greeks who never visited the island are quite familiar with its scenery from Greek movies that take place in Rhodes, from the golden era of Greek cinema in the 60s.
