The Island of Sea-Sponge Harvesters

Kalymnos is an island in the Dodecanese and is located in the southeastern Aegean, just a short distance from Leros, from which it is separated by a strait. Kalymnos is famous for its residents' occupation of sponges, thanks to which there are today three museums and a modern archaeological museum on the island.

In the area of Pothia, the capital of the island, lies the great harbor of Kalymnos. An airport has also been operating in recent years, with daily flights to and from Athens.
