Kalymnos, the real island experience

This island is the home of the Greek sponge divers. All, of course, the Dodecanese are world known as a place of sponge divers, the best in the world. But, Karpathos, Kassos, Nisyros, Symi, Halki, and above all Kalymnos are the main nurseries of the diving activity spread across the eastern Mediterranean. But they have carried their art, even in America, in the Gulf of Mexico. Also in Florida, in the United States, have founded the city of Tarpon Springs, who live mainly people from Kalymnos, and other Dodecanese Greek-Americans and others who continue the tradition of virtuosos divers. The Dodecanese divers are not only used for sponge fishing, but for every job. The Italian expert Domenico Mantzolani says with admiration that a diver on the island of Symi, George Kangi, in 1913 passed a loop to the anchor of an Italian warship that had been cut down to the bottom. The one diver without diving suit, had managed to stay in bed for 3 minutes and 5 seconds! Each year, approximately 40 to 50 units of fishing boats, with crews of up to 800 to 1,000 sailors, ranging from the islands and especially from Kalymnos and head to the coast of Africa, especially in Tunis and Libya. To achieve the Sponge charged farewell, in Kalymnos are taking place two-day celebrations, which begin with the blessing of the ship and ends with the "Feast of Love". In those celebrations are taking part all the inhabitants of the island. In recent decades, divers of the Dodecanese dive "naked", ie without wearing special protective diving suit and learned their craft in an empirical way. Now they use special protective suits and other modernized equipment, while training at the National Diving School of Kalymnos.

Sparta is a simple, uncomplicated and always hospitable place, ready to offer its services to the visitors all throughout the year, since the sights around Sparta, as well as all over the prefecture of Lakonia are so many and of such a kind that they attract the interest of tourists all year through. The capital of the prefecture of Lakonia, located 220 km from Athens, has 14000 inhabitants and a modern and efficient town planning since it was built in the beginning of the modern Greek state according to the 1834 official town plan. Sparta has the appropriate infrastructure to ensure an enjoyable stay and provide for the organization of tours around the prefecture, since it constitutes not only the administrative but also the transportation center of the prefecture. The Mycenaean vaulted tomb of Vafio, constructed from small, carved stones, has been the subject of many archaeological studies and has become worldwide known because of the two golden cups found inside the tomb. These cups, bearing depictions of wild bull hunting, can be seen at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, and even though the location of the palace of Mycenaean Sparta has not been identified, they constitute evidence of the prosperity and development of the region much earlier than 1000 B.C. The regions significance has been attested also by the discovery of the Mycenaean tombs in the location "Spilakia".One of the most important archaeological discoveries in Greece, located in Vafio close to Amycles. The archaeological excavations brought to light a vaulted tomb containing two golden cups. These findings underline the significance of the region during the post-Hellenic and Mycenaean period. The Archaeological Museum of Sparta is the first Greek Museum that was built in a provincial town (1874-76) and it was designed by the Greek architect G. Katsaros. It consists of six rooms and a hall. The exhibits include findings from the temple of Artemis Orthia (clay labeled columns commemorating the winners of contests dedicated to goddess Artemis) and the temple of Athena Chalkioikos (bronze idols, pottery, etc), findings from the excavations in Amycles, as well as a small part of the mosaic floors that have been revealed during the excavations around the town of Sparta and used to decorate the wealthy family houses of the Hellenistic and Roman period. There are also two rooms with sculptures, including the statue which is known as Leonidas, and a room with findings from the prehistoric excavations in Pellana and Amycles. The Ancient Theater of Sparta is located on the southwestern slope of the Spartan Acropolis just below the temple of Athena. It has a southern orientation, which is a quite common characteristic of the ancient theaters, but because of the natural relief, it leans slightly towards the south. It is one of the biggest ancient theaters, with an external diameter of 140 m. and natural ground, but through the works for the walls, the size of the available space was almost tripled. The current form of the theater dates back to the Roman period and more specifically to its latest reconstruction during the era of emperor Theodosios.

Chios, the island of Greek tradition and local culture

Chios, the island of Greek tradition and local culture

The Town of Chios, which is called "Chora" by the locals, was built in the central east part of the island like all the adjoining in Asia Minor islands. Chios is situated opposite to the peninsula of Erythraia from which is separated with a narrow straight (channel), a position that proves the close connection between Chios and Ionia. Chora is built almost in the center of the east coast and is the most significant harbor in the island. According to archeological finds the island has been inhabited since 6000B.C. Chios town was built by Ions little before 1000 B.C. So, Chora has a history of more than 3000 years time. During this period, Chios enjoyed great prosperity but also a decline. The Town of Chios has a population of about 29000 people and is the largest area of the prefecture, for this reason is considered to be the administrative, spiritual, cultural, educational and business center of Chios prefecture.The harbor is connected coastal with the other two islands of the prefecture, Psara and Inousses, also with the biggest harbors in Athens and Greece generally, and with Turkey. As a result we have a great trading development and frequent journeys and trips both from tourists and residents. Today the Town has kept the basic town planning schedule without big changes during the course of time, with the castle, the harbor, the streets and the settlements. But the destruction of 1822 and the terrible earthquake of 1881, with the general reconstruction in postwar years have ruined the historic architectural physiognomy of the Town. For all its extent, the Town affords a unique opportunity for wandering by feet among the small streets of the settlements and the central arterial roads. In the center of the Town is the famous "Vounaki" square, where the biggest part of the area is taken up by the Public Park. From the center of the square, the "Kenenti" street leads to the official gate of the medieval Castle of Chios. The building of the Castle was at the end of the 10th century and the beginning of 11th in the area of the ancient town and very close to the harbor. By the time the Castle was built and until today is constantly inhabited and has kept the main characteristics of the old castle, narrow streets, many ruins and buildings of various ages.
