728*90
Skyros is located almost in the middle of the Aegean Sea and belongs to the Sporades Islands. The island is mostly mountainous and in the northern part you can find a marvelous pine forest. In one way, the northern part is related to the natural landscapes that you encounter in the Sporades and northern Evvoia, while the southern part with the landscapes of southern Evvoia and even the Cyclades.

Skyros Half Marathon 1

The capital of the island is Chora or Horio or Skyros, located in the northeastern part of the island to the Aegean Sea. The neighboring settlements of Chora are Magazia, Molos, Gyrismata and Pouria, which extend to the north of the capital towards the sea. On the northern coast, south of Chora, there are also the settlements Aspous and Achilli, while in the northern part of the island there are also the settlements of Trachia, where the airport of Skyros and Atsitsa are located on the west coast. The main harbor is Linaria, on the southwest coast of the bay of the same name, from which the island is also connected by ferry to the rest of Greece. In the adjacent bay extends the settlement of Acherounes and further west the Pefkos. East of Linaria lays the settlement of Kalamitsa, in the homonym bay.
Skyrian horses unique in their kind live in nature in small herds. You will see them run freely on the Ary Plateau, grazing quietly on farms while the history of their origins is fascinating. The Chora is unique. Small white houses full of old ornament, courtyards of undefined shape, with sun-reflecting terraces and care, are poured from the top of the hill through cobblestoned streets. Wood carvings, ceramics, embroidery, high aesthetic creations of another era that are elements of everyday life and continue to this day. The Skyrian dialect spoken in everyday life has its roots in ancient Greek. An idiom that serves the needs of people to communicate with each other and their place.

In Skyros one lives between the past and the present. Walking in the alleyways in the winter, visiting the traditional festivals, the panigiria, listening to the local dialect, reveals a world in another world.
