Hydra island  

The Lady of the Saronic Gulf, Hydra, is one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece.

The town of Hydra, a model of architecture and aesthetics, is built amphitheatrically around the port. At the entrance of the port, there are the parapets with the cannons which protected the city.

Taking a walk through the narrow streets you will find the Hydra Museum of Historical Archives, the historic mansions of Lazaros and Pavlos Kountouriotis as well as the School of Fine Arts.

The island's trademark are the traditional donkeys since there are no vehicles.

The lacy beaches along with the gray of the rocks and the blue of the sea, give Hydra a unique beauty, making it an ideal destination for inspiration and creation!
