One of the most amazing days i have ever had Oct 11, 2013
If you are heading to Kos, or any island nearby, you should visit Nisyros island. Nisyros island is a small vulcano island with full of sulfur craters. The vulcano has 7 craters, of which stefanos is the biggest one and the most popular crater. Because the vulcano is a sulfur vulcano it smells like rotten eggs over there. But After a few minutes you will forget the stench. When you get there, you will be amazed about the size and the depth of this craters.
Nisyros island also has a few small towns which are stil very traditional, but accessible for tourists. The monastery of spiliani is one of the most popular sights on this island, besides the vulcano. Thousands of greeks are visiting this monastery every year because of the celebration of the ascension of Mary. This will be held on every 15th of August.
The island of Nisyros has a traditional syrup which is called Soumada. This is a very sweet syrup made of almonds. Nisyros island is known for its almond orchards which explains the traditional syrup.
I recommend you all to visit this island if you're nearby.The boat trip to this island is also very impressive!!!
