For explorers here's a brief overview:

Skyros is an island whose history extends far into the mythological era where there are the first signs and instructions.

Theseus, Lykomidis, Axill and Neoptolemus are persons of mythology, which are inseparably connected with the history of the island.

The Neolithic period, the classical period, the Roman and subsequently the Ottoman domination to piratical invasions, all this has shaped the island, a living room with archaic roots, which still live in traditional customs and practices.

In the two museums on the island, Folklore and Archaeological Museum, there are many documents and monuments of this important past.

Skyros is the largest island of the Northern Sporades island complex and is characterized by a unique landscape feature. The northern part of the island is rich in dense pine forests and agricultural land in the south there is a pastoral landscape with dense shrub vegetation, in addition to goats and sheep also the unique skyrianischen Pony offers a refuge of rare beauty.

Probably the most picturesque part of the island is without doubt the Chora, the capital of the island, with its, an amphitheater and arranged houses, nestled on a 179m high cliff. On the top of the rock is the old castle, from where a unique view of the large blue Aegean Sea offers. Noteworthy is the design of the castle, as it is only accessible from one side, all the other 3 sides falling steeply towards the sea, and so provided a natural fortification against enemy attacks.

Next to the castle is the monastery of St. George, who is the patron saint of the island and from where, unique views for visitors offers.

Of all the beaches of the island offer some very distinct aesthetic beauty. On the north side there is the beach of Atsitsa, Agalipa, which is accessible only by boat, Agios Petros, Gyrismata and Pefkos. The south side is waiting for and Kolymbada with the long beach of Kalamitsa.

The crystal clear water, the clean and translucent sea bottom in connection with the beauty of the scenery entice the visitor to feel at one with the splendor of creation which spreads before him.

Wunderbare Tage auf Skyros

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften im September 2015 10 Tage auf Skyros im Haus von Kostas verbringen, es war Griechenland wie wir es schätzen und mögen ! Kostas ist ein wunderbarer, herzlicher Gastgeber, das Haus unmittelbar unter der Burg und dem Kloster in Skyros Stadt hat ein unglaubliches Flair, tolle Ausblicke von den Balkonen und eine schattige Terasse zum Relaxen und Ausspannen. Die Insel bietet für jeden etwas, herrliche Wanderungen und tolle Strände, nicht so überlaufen wie inzwischen leider viele andere griechische Inseln. Es hat uns jedenfalls so gut gefallen, dass wir im kommenden Sommer wiederkommen werden !

très jolie maison typique dans le haute de la vill

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné 10 jours dans cette maison, à 4 adultes. Très belle maison, typique, meublée de façon traditionnelle. Il y a une terasse extérieure ombragée avec de la glycine en fleurs, et ne haut une très jolie chambre séparée avec une vue splendide. Le propriétaire est très acceuillant , séjour parfait.

Top-Entspannung pur bei wundervollen Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu zweit für 13 Nächte in diesem wundervollen gemütlichen Wohnhaus von Kostas und seiner Familie einen unserer schönsten Urlaube verleben dürfen. Das Haus lässt auf 3 Etagen, mit 2 Bädern, Waschmaschine, Küche, mehren Balkonen und einer schattigen Terrasse keine Wünsche an Komfort und Aussicht auf das Meer und das Dorf zu unser Füssen liegend, offen. Unglaublich herzliche und aufmerksame Gastgeber, die wir ins Herz geschlossen haben und deren Domizil wir jedem, der diese Insel besucht, mit vielen Sternen bestückt, weiterempfehlen möchten. Top!
