Hydra, with its continuous offering to tourism and to the culture of our country, remains the adornment of the Saronic Gulf and one of the most important resorts that Greece has to offer. Main characteristic of Hydra is that there are no wheeled vehicles and the transportation of people is being made only by donkeys, a thing that makes the Island even more romantic. On the Island you will enjoy romantic walks in the narrows, picturesque, paved alleys.

Generally, Hydra is famous for the calm life is offers to the visitors in the day, but also for the intense, cosmopolitan night life. Bar, pub, disco, with foreign-Greek music and rave-up till the morning.

The port of Hydra is filled with little and big yachts, boats and cruisers. At the left side of the port, after the statue of A. Miaoulis, we can find the Harbour Authorities of Hydra, which are accommodated in the old, stonebuilt powder magazine. Next to the Harbour Authorities is the marble Archive Building of Hydra and further we find the house of Tsamados family, which accommodates the famous Sea Captain Academy.

At the center of the port is located the Cathedral which was built in 1648 and reconstructed in 1774. Aforetime operated as the Holy Church of dormition. Today, in the Temple, are located the headquarters of the Town Hall and the Ecclesiastic museum. (hydra.com.gr)
