Kos

Kos is an island of majestic beauty, lying in the centre of the Dodecanese chain in the Aegean Sea, Northwest of Rhodes and Southeast of Continental Greece. Kos is the third largest of the Dodecanese Islands after Rhodes and Karpathos.

Besides its natural beauty and its breathtaking golden sandy beaches, Kos is steeped in monuments.  Remnants from its glorious past, dating from antiquity, the Byzantine Era and Venetian times are everywhere around you.

Kos is basically a large, long narrow plain and measures 290.313 square kilometers, with the obvious exception of a mountainous region in the northwest of the island. This region comprises of a series of peaks, the tallest of which is Dikaio Christo (which in Greek means "The Just Christ"). The Castle of the Knights of the Order of St. John still survives on one of the many peaks of Dikaio near Thimiana.

The shores are gently caressed by the waters of the Karpathian Sea. Kos' coastline stretches to 112km which also includes smaller islands such as Nisyros, Giali, Pergoussa, Kandeliousa, Pahia and Strogili. The city also boasts a Catholic Cathedral, one of only four in the entire Dodecanese.

The inhabitants make their living from fishing, animal farming and agriculture but the tourism industry is by far the biggest source of income.
