It should be marked that Paros as well as Santorini and Mikonos is quite a tourist, and certainly rather expensive place.

PATMOS

Patmos is indisputably, the most beautiful and well-known island from all small Cyclades islands. He differs in a unique atmosphere - according to legend, exactly here, in a cave, an apostle Ioannis Theologos (Theologies in Greek) made a new covenant Book of Revelations and with it he defined the fate of island. Founded in 1088 in honor Ioannis Theologos majestic monastery dominates above Patmos both physically - his mighty walls are visible practically from everywhere - and in a noticeable degree spiritually. Although monks no longer govern an island as it was on the extent of 600 years, nevertheless the monastery doesn’t allow an island to move in development in footsteps nearby Braid and Rhodes.  In spite of many visitors - tourists mainly arrive on one day, within the framework of excursion turns, and it is not given tourism to take Patmos fully. Certainly, after midnight, a few clubs continue work, but the drunk and committing excesses tourists are the phenomenon unknown here. Those who remains to spend the night in city a few to lack of hotels and Patmos becomes quite another after sunset, when the last passengers already walked up the decks of the cruise liners. Rock, where the basic population of island lives - on the face of it conflicts with character of pious Patmos. An embankment with its chic cafes and boutiques, filled by expensive arts and crafts – looks rather unexpected for such little small town. In the mids of the season the island is full, and in winter, a district resembles a city-ghost, because even the owners of restaurants and shops get over to Athens or on nearby Rhodes. Choir on grief is very picturesque. In Castellini it is possible to find out bits and pieces of ancient structures, foundation of ancient acropolis.

A landscape testifies to so dramatic and stormy history, that it really seems legend. 3000 to our era an island successfully developed and was the outpost of Mina civilization, but approximately in 1648 B.C. a tragedy happened - an island-volcano exploded, his middle part had submerged into the sea, leaving after itself an enormous crater by the diameter of 10км, and on the coast of the Aegean sea a frightful earthquake was brought down. Death of Fira inflicted the strong damage of Mina civilization with a center on Crete. This history is bound to the recital of Plato of the Beatific islands of lost Atlбntida, submerging on a bottom marine. Plato insisted on truth of this legend...Now days tourists are not very concerned about this apocalyptic events, they come her for the sake of amazing landscapes unbelievable beaches with black volcanic sand and red pumice and to feel a strange spirit, inherent to the local places that according to statement of local rumor chose vampires.
