Furthermore, Hydra had exceptional economic growth in the past thanks to its naval and commercial activity. During the 1821 War of Independence, the Hydriots contributed significantly participating in crucial sea battles.
What travellers love about this island is the traditional stone mansions owned by important families. Today most of these mansions house the island’s museums. Also, the picturesque narrow cobblestoned alleys are truly magical. Find inspiration in every single corner of this place. But above all, the banning of cars and motorbikes and the use of donkeys as means of public transportation is what they love most. It is the reason why Hydra preserved its elegant atmosphere through the passage of time.

Stroll around the shops and cafes and find yourself lost in neighbourhoods at the upper part of the town.
