Welcome to North Aegean Islands
There are lots of interesting things to do and places to visit
The North Aegean islands are not as popular as Sporades or Halkidiki, but they certainly have a special place in our hearts. As a result of the low profile, the North Aegean islands have found it easier to keep their Greek traditional identity unharmed from the mainstream ideas. People usually consider them well-hidden treasures and once you witness their incomparable beauty you will understand how they earned this reputation. There are lots of interesting things to do and places to visit so you are sure to never run out of options.
A rich island waiting to be discovered
Although Lemnos is the eight biggest island in Greece it has escaped the phenomenon of “mass tourism” due to its distance from the capital city, Athens. It has a huge variety of things to do, food to taste, and places to visit. But when in Lemnos you should definitely visit the Volcanic rocks of Faraklo, also known as the land of Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths, metallurgy and fire. Thousands of years ago lava transformed the rocks in a multitude of weirdly interesting shapes. As you might have guessed it, this is the best place on the island to take incredibly cool pictures. Give it a try!
A small island lost in the pure waters of the Aegean ocean
A small island lost in the pure waters of the Aegean ocean, called Agios Efstratios, is not as insignificant as you may think. This underrated place offers to enchant you with unexpectedly beautiful sunsets and its amazing highlights. One of the most important highlights is the museum of Democracy. This specific museum is dedicated to the political prisoners who were exiled to the island for punishment. Before that, the same building used to be a school. In general, in the museum of Democracy you will be able to learn about the lives of those who were exiled and the history of the island.
