Family trip to Limnos Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Limnos Lemnos is an island where you can introduce your child to the basics of Greek mythology. According to ancient Greek legends, the island was sacred to Hephaestus, god of metallurgy. Zeus threw him on this island. Hephaestus had to survive and asked locals for help. In gratitude, he told them the secrets of metal processing. There is an opinion that Lemnos is the place where the pentathlon firstly occurred. It is believed that this kind of competition was firstly arranged by Hypsipyle, the Queen of Lemnos. It was made in honour of the arrival of the Argonauts on the island. Lemnos is known in Greece as the abode of warlike Amazons. Jason and his people spent 2 years here to continue the race of Amazons and they gave birth to the Minyans. At least that’s what legends say.

Sintians, Cretans, Minoans, Pelasgians, Persians, Athenians, Spartans, Macedonians, Romans and Turks ruled on the island at different times and somehow left their mark on Lemnos. Be sure to visit the Archaeological Museum of Lemnos. There is a variety of household items, jewellery, weapons and armour of different eras. Despite the fact that a part of the exhibition was carried to Athens, the collection of the museum is rich and you should come here a couple of times to see and study all of the exhibits.
The capital of Lemnos, Myrina, will amaze children with its antiquity. It is hard not to become impressed at seeing a city which has been standing at its place for 2500 years. Moreover, most of the buildings haven't been restored since the 11th century. So, you should definitely take your child to Myrina. Those who are interested in castles, knights, princes, princesses and dragons will be happy to visit the Castle of Myrina(Kastro). It is the largest fortress in the Aegean Sea.
