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.
