According to mythology, when Zeus and the other gods decided to divide the earth, they forgot to keep a piece for god Sun (Helios), who was absent as he performed his daily duties. When he returned and realized it, Zeus wanted to re-make the Earth's share so that Sun would not be neglected. But he did not allow it, because he saw that a piece of land was emerging from the depths of the sea. Then he asked from Zeus to promise, the country that would emerge from the sea when he would rise again in the next morning would be his own. So it happened. A beautiful island emerged from the sea, which was given to God Helios. On this island, he went and lived with his wife, Nymph Rhodes. Since then he constantly sends his light rays to the beautiful island, and stands at the sea as the sunniest place all over the Earth.
Rhodes is also famous for its nightlife throughout the world. There is a variety of nightlife, between bars, pubs and discos basically found in the city of Rhodes and the tourist resorts of Faliraki, Lindos and Ialysos. There are more than a hundred disco-bars.
