Welcome to Hydra

Hydra is the island of the Saronic Bay that enchants your senses and every corner looks like a painting. But additionally, the unique architecture and the characteristic absence of cars make the island be a big welcoming hug and a wonderful cultural destination.
Hydra ... An island, coming from the dream! An idyllic landscape of original images.

Hydra in 19th century had about 150 ships and 10.000 sailors. 16.000 inhabitants lived on the island. Prosperity in shipping easily deduced from the mansions of the captains that watch today in the harbor.
During the Greek Revolution, the Hydra fleet with Psara and Spetses too, played an very important role and contributed to the war against the Ottomans.
Admiral Andreas Miaoulis, who lived in Hydra, managed to fire ships to cause huge losses in the Ottoman fleet.
At Hydra the visitor has the opportunity to enjoy cultural events of special interest to top the celebration event of "Miaoulia" every June. The festival takes place for the completion of the anniversary of Admiral Andreas Miaoulis death. "Miaoulia’s” peak, becomes the last Saturday of June with enactment of the Battle of the Elder that follows a spectacular Fireworks background.
Visitors can visit museums such as the Historical Archives-Museum of Hydra, the Historical House Lazaros Kountourioti, The Ecclesiastical Byzantine Museum and marvel at the Mansion Pavlos Kountourioti and other architecturally impressive mansions of the place. It is worth noting that throughout the year take place in special areas important painting, photography and visual arts.
The welcoming Hydra invites visitors to a sports trip, culture and knowledge of the local history. But also a trip that island becomes one with the relaxation and charm of the ideal recreation.
