The themes in Tolstoy’s works are still important and are close to the modern man, faith and friendship, the meaning of life, the pursuit of truth, love and understanding and forgiveness, the injustice and absurdity of  war, the problem of everyday moral choice.

Leo Tolstoy was also  interested in Greek history, he translated e.g.Leo Tolstoy works of Aesop, Socrates, Homer, Herodotus and  Xenophon  from Greek into Russian. He also  participated in the creation of a book about Socrates.


I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
