In this video, contributor and drone pilot Badios filmed Katerina Soldatou doing her "Greece Has Soul" aerial dance over the Corinthian Canal, one of the most well-known sights in central Greece.  The canal was built in the late 1800's to connect the Saronic Gulf and the Gulf of Corinth, which sit on opposite sides of the Isthmus of Corinth connecting the Peloponnese Peninsula with the mainland of Greece.  While the canal is too narrow for shipping, it is big enough for small boats.

Given the Greek origins of marathons, it's no surprise that they are regular events there.  In this video, contributor Aerial_Rizikianos used a drone to film the 29th Athens Marathon.  As you might imagine, the notion of this being the 29th run does not count the run which started it all: the 26 mile run by the messenger in 490 BC to let the people of Athens know that their city-state had defeated the Persian army under King Darius I at the Battle of Marathon.

Moses B. created this beautiful drone video of a historic bridge in Greece. Gorgopotamos Bridge spans the river of the same name in Phthiotis, a region of Central Greece.  After Nazi Germany conquered Greece in the Spring of 1941, the bridge became crucial in the German struggle to keep its North African forces supplied.  In November, 1942, Greek resistance forces, aided by British special forces, blew up the bridge as part of Operation Harling, one of the war's great special ops successes.

In this video, contributor Badios aerially filmed Katerina Soldatou performing an aerial dance beneath a famous modern bridge in Greece.  The Rio–Antirrio Bridge connects the Peloponnese Peninsula to the Greek mainland, well to the west of the Corinth Canal crossings.  Built in 2004, the 2.9k meter ((9.5k) cable-stayed bridge is widely considered to be one of the great works of modern civil engineering.  As of 2018, the span is the world's third largest span of the suspended cable-stayed design.

Euboea is Greece's second largest island (after Crete) but is less well known than its cousin to the south.  It's a long, narrow piece of land which lies on the east side of the Euboean Gulf from the mainland of Central Greece.  It is believed that the island was once actually part of the mainland and became separated by an earthquake at some point.  In this drone video by contributor Chris Ikarus, you'll get a bird's eye view of a town called Eretria, which lies in the middle of the island's western coast.
