Over the last years, the island of Kalymnos has gradually developed as a rock climbing destination. Its landscape is mountainous and the characteristic feature of Kalymnos is its many caves. The mountains on the northern side of the island and the neighboring island of Telendos are the most popular sites for rock climbing. Other interesting sightseeing in Kalymnos is the Monastery of Agios Savvas and the Medieval Castle of Chryssoheria. Visitors should also not miss a boat trip from the port of Myrties to the island of Telendos, a secluded place with naturist beaches.
This private Folklore Museum is located about 1,5 km from Pothia, on the way to Vothoni. It is a representation of a traditional Kalymnian house with agricultural tools, traditional clothes, kitchen utensils, and other items.
The Traditional House of Kalymnos is a private folklore museum that was established by Mrs. Faneromeni Skylla, a woman who has loved Kalymnos a lot and wanted to show visitors the traditional life on the island. This museum is located 1,5 km from Pothia Town, on the road to Vothini.
The exhibits include local costumes, bridal dresses, houseware, a loom, a spindle, a hand mill, pottery jugs, and traditional furniture, like the krevatos, the large family bed with a baby cot above it. Visitors can also see old coins, books, letters, weapons, and swords. The staff of the museum will offer you the local wine anama and bread. They can also inform you about the customs of Kalymnos.
