The city of Lefkada is the capital, it is a mountainous island, with the mountains of Stavrota, which has the peaks of Elati, Meganoros, chalasmeno Vouno, etc. Among the mountains there are valleys of Fleva, Vasiliki and Egklismenou. The plains are very fertile and produce oil, olives, grain, etc. It also has salt production of 2-3 million pounds. In the 7th century, the Corinthians and Corfu people kill Akarnanes and subjugate the island. In 314, it is subjected to Kassandros and, after its release, it is conquered by the Romans in 197 BC. In 1204 AD, it passes to the Venetians, in 1477 until 1684 to the Turks, when it is occupied by the Venetian Morazinis. After this period, it gets the fate of the other Ionian Islands until 1864, when it becomes united with Greece.

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.

Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos or Myconos is a Greek island and one of the top international tourist destinations, famous around the world for its cosmopolitan character and its intense nightlife. The island is part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Siros, Paros and Naxos. It spans an area of 105.183 square kilometers and rises at an elevation of 341 m at its highest point. The island is composed primarily of granite. It has little natural fresh water and relies on the desalination of sea water in order to meet its needs. There are 9,320 inhabitants most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, also known as Chora, i.e. the Town in Greek, a common denomination in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town, which lies on the west coast. Archaeological finds indicate that the Ionians settled on Mykonos in the early part of the 11th century BC. More recent discoveries have uncovered remnants in Ftelia beach from the Neolithic Kares tribe dating back to as far as 3000 BC. In Greek mythology, Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Gigantes, and the island was named in honor of Apollo's grandson Mykons. During these ancient times, Mykonos, due to its proximity to the highly populated island of Delos, situated about 2km away, became very important as a supply island and possibly as a getaway location for Delian citizens.Today, Mykonos is one of the world's most cosmopolitan islands, having become increasingly popular especially during the last 50 years due to the numerous international jet set visitors that spend their holidays on the island. It is widely known for its extremely rich, diverse and often intense nightlife featured by a vast number of bars and nightclubs. Mykonos is also distinctive for its sandy beaches, offering everything from crystal clear waters, windsurfing potential, sea side tavernas, bars featuring 24hour loud music and even full nudity in some cases. Many Greek and international celebrities have summer residences in Mykonos and can often be seen walking the white washed roads or having dinner at a small street side table of an expensive restaurant or a taverna. The island is also one of the most upscale areas of Greece, and its real estate is very expensive. The popularity of the island has given rise to a wave of real estate development with the construction of private homes, villas, and hotels. This has raised some concerns that the island may be gradually losing its character. In order to prevent this, the island's zoning requires all new buildings to abide by the rules of the Cycladic architectural style.The nightlife of Mykonos is marketed as among the best in Europe.1. Mykonos is rated among the top clubbing destinations in the Mediterranean, along with Ibiza, Ayia Napa and Rimini. Mykonos also attracts world famous DJs to its clubs and beach bars, the most well known of which are Paradise, Super Paradise and Paranga. In addition, Mykonos is a gay friendly resort area during the summer, featuring several gay clubs.2. Mykonos nightlife focuses mainly on bars rather than clubs, yet a number of notable clubs can be found throughout the island.3. Additionally a number of non Greeks have recently taken up residency in Mykonos coming mainly from Albania and the Balkan republics which is said to have created an uptick in petty crime.

Every year thousands of tourists visit these wonderful beaches. One can even discover small emerald coloured beaches which are unique in the Aegean. These are not the only unique beaches mentioned above. There are others which you can visit in combination with a mini cruise with fishing boats. In such a case one can enjoy the Pantieronisia, the small island of Despotiko famous for its archaelogical findings, the beach of Faneromeni, the one of Agios Spiridonas, the cave of Mastihari....all quiet and most beautiful.A cave with stalagmites and stalactites can't help being a natural wonder, and a sight to see. It is known that throughout history, people used it as a refuge until they started building houses, and later on as a place of worship. If finds dating back to the Stone Age had been discovered there, it also would have had some archaeological interest. Antiparos cave has a uniqueness, not only because of its enchanting stalagmites, which took thousands of years to form from water eroding the limestone, but also because of its strong connection with the history of the island. Ancient pots were discovered in the cave as well as a dedication to the goddess Diana. According to an inscription, one of the caves first visitors was Archilochos the Parian who was a great lyrical poet. The names of Macedonian generals can also still be seen. They conspired against Alexander the Great and found refuge in the Cave of Antiparos in order to hide themselves to save their lives.

Patmos, a blessed island

Patmos, a blessed island

This particularity lies that it combines the historicity and the religiosity of space with the ideal place that offers in the visitor for relaxation and quiet vacations. One of the smallest inhabited islands of the Aegean, Patmos, is incredibly beautiful. It is the island where Saint John the Theologian, while exiled there, had a vision and in 1995 the 1900 years - since the writing of his Apocalypse were commemorated. The impressive stone monastery dominates majestically over most of the island, inviting you to approach it with respect, wonder and awe. The island, which has kept its ancient name, today has become a place of pilgrimage and the throng of faithful flock to supplicate and relish the spiritual heritage of this sacred island and also to admire and enjoy its beauty and serenity.The picturesque, interchangeable landscape, with the small plains and valleys, the impressive rocks - hoisted like castles on the tops and the slopes of the hills (the most prominent being that of Prophet Elias) - with thick spreading pine and other tree-forests, along with its religious significance and mysticism, presents a sup generis image. The island lies between Ikaria and Leros. It was inhabited since very ancient times and according to legend, it was here that Orestes -who killed his mother Clytemnestra - came to elude the vengeance of the Furies. The most important attraction naturally will be the fortress-like monastery of St John, built in 1088 by the monk Christodoulos. Many priceless treasures are housed in its sacristy. Also, in Hora, there is an Ecclesiastical Museum. Halfway between Hora and Skala there is the "Grotto of the Apocalypse", where the Revelation was written by John the Evangelist. At the mouth of the cave you will see the church of Agia Anna and at a short distance from there, the famous Patmias School is located. At the Patmos shops you find reasonably priced porcelain, crystal and silver items. The Patmian embroidery is famous for its elegance.
