Snowy Greece from space: The wonderful photo by a Russian cosmonaut

Greece from Space

The Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov shared online a photograph from the International Space Station (ISS) in which a snowy Greece is seen.

The cosmonaut, who has been in space for some time, posts photos and videos of his presence on the ISS on Twitter.

This time, Greece had its honour of being captured from afar.

"We continue our journey around our big planet!," Shkaplerov wrote in his post.

"Today we have Greece, a true tourist paradise with excellent infrastructure and wide opportunities for all types of holidays," he added.

At the same time, the cosmonaut accompanied the post with a photo that shows partially snow-covered Greece.
