Покупка греческих островов частными лицами сегодня уже неnews. So, earlier this year, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani bought six Greek islands total value about 8.5 million euros.
As originally reported, the Emir acquired islands planned to use exclusively for personal purposes (from the Emir three wives and 24 children – approx. Ed.)
However, quite recently there was news that one of the purchased Islands, namely the island Oksia, will be turned into an island of art (Art Island).
According to local media, a project worth about 300 million euros will create more than 200 new jobs.
The objectives of the project include:
- Creating the image of the island as an international cultural center
- The opening of new museums and exhibition halls.
It should be noted that the emergence of a similar Island of Art in Greece will have a positive effect on stimulating Greek tourism.
