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

Patmos Island, Greece Patmos is quite suitable for a quiet, secluded family holiday. Though, there are no water parks or large amusement parks here, the tourist infrastructure, in general, is well developed due to a large number of travelers coming to the island with cruise liners. Most often they do not explore Patmos completely and do not even stay here for the night. Deserts, even in the high season, beaches and untouched nature of the island are adjacent to a large number of historical monuments, so your child will have the opportunity not only to have fun and rest but also to learn more about the world that surrounds him.
Skala is the busiest and the noisiest place on the island; there are always a lot of people and a lively atmosphere. There are attractive taverns and bars on its sandy well-equipped beach. … Open
Among Christians, Patmos is known as the "island of the Apocalypse" – it is here, according to legend, where John the Theologian received the Revelation about the end of times. There are a lot of churches here, and if your child is interested in religion or just likes to look at art, you can visit the Patmos Church Museum, which is located at the monastery of St. John the Theologian. Here you can see a large collection of ancient icons, books, manuscripts, and vestments of priests embroidered with gold and silver. The children with a good imagination and those just interested in history will certainly enjoy the Simandiri mansion, which can be called a folklore museum. The furnishings, objects of everyday life, and folk art of the 14th-16th centuries are available for consideration to everyone. The exposition of the Nikolaidis mansion will tell your child about the rich history of the island.
The archaeological park of Castelli Patmos will appeal to both children and adults. To kids, the ruins of ancient buildings will give the opportunity to fantasize about who and when could live here, and older children will be able to see with their own eyes what they only heard during the history lessons. You can also take your child to Skala Acropolis and the ancient settlement of Chlakokratias. In the latter, by the way, the archeologists have found a lot of evidence that the island was inhabited in the prehistoric era. The ruins of the city in Aspri bay, which, presumably, can be the ruins of the famous Platis Gialos will also impress the child. If the child wants to see more ancient antiquities, then take him to the ruins of the Temple of Apollo or the Sanctuary of Peter sto Greco. Copyright

It is necessary to show the Rock of Kallikatsou to the small disobedient children. According to the ancient Greek legend, a young girl who disobeyed her mother's ban on bathing in the sea turned into rock. If you want, you can go with your child to explore the island caves. There are a lot of them: Kinopa, Apollo, Sikamia, Alykes and, of course, the cave of John the Theologian. The latter is always crowded because this is a place of pilgrimage of the Christians from all over the world. You can go for a walk to any of the local religious buildings – there are more than five dozen churches and monasteries, and many of them were built in antiquity. The Monastery of John the Theologian was built more than eight centuries ago and has so far not been influenced by time.
Patmos Island, Greece There is enough opportunity on Patmos to rest from the hustle. The island's largest beach is Kambos, and Meloi is best suited for relaxing with a small child. It is shallow, almost never windy, and the water is very clear. You can swim in Grikos. Your child can also try himself in diving or snorkeling, windsurfing, and water skiing. If the child can ride a bicycle, then you can ride around the island on an "iron horse" – the traffic here is low-intensity, and the roads are in good condition.
