Climbing and Hiking

There's an excellent guide for you people who enjoy the thousands of routes our island has to offer! It is climbkalymnos.com, and apart from being the best effort to put together all the relevant info in one place, is right from the horse's mouth! It is maintained by Mr. Theodoropoulos, who's the main person behind Kalymnos' establishment as a safe, fun place to climb after it was discovered.

The Archaeological Museum

Lady of KalymnosThe Archaeological Museum in Pothia is a very interesting visit! It hosts all the statues that were discovered near the temple of Apollo, in a christian "apothetirion" (basically a pit where the statues were left to be buried for ever). Now they are proudly displayed in a beautiful and well organized space to the joy of the locals and to the amazment of visitors.

There's one in particular, which is amongst the very few bronze supernatural (larger than natural size) statues ever discovered in Greece! It is called the "Lady of Kalymnos" and it is an absolute beauty!

One can also see a supernatural Asclepeus, a Core (a female Kouros) and a hermaphrodite -which is an athlete's dedication to Apollo- amongst the ~125 statues that compose the collection! And then there's the Byzantine period exibition and last (but first in reality!) the Neolithic collections from Vathy.

Visit the museum at will, commision is free.

Wi-Fi

Unfortunately there's no xDSL (broadband) infrastructure in Emporios... Therefore, Wi-Fi cannot be offered... When this is fixed, we will be more than glad to remove this notice!


!UPDATE!
Despite the fact that xDSL is not available yet, we are working towards a 3G solution. Thus we will be able to offer wireless Internet in the restaurant area.

Credit cards

Due to the above mentioned limitation of connections, we cannot accept credit cards. The banks do not give the old, hand-operated mechanisms anymore, so it is impossible for the moment...

Marine Traffic!

Link to marinetraffic.com, a site that shows you where the vessels in our area are in 15 minutes time lapse! Click on the vessel you are interested in, to see more info on it.
