Karpathos is a perfect Karpathosdestination for a real complete sailing escape among Greek islands of Dodecanese. The island is culturally very interesting. Karpathos infact is not only sandy beaches; it is also picturesque villages unique landscapes and traditional Karpathian homes. Tradition is still alive and part of everyday life in Karpathos. The visitor will have the opportunity to enjoy unique moments at the town Festivities, weddings, christenings, organized in the old Traditional way and to feel the mystic pleasure of the Karpathian way of celebrating. Carved wooden shelves were attached to the walls where the housewives arranged glasses, pitchers, mugs, plates and other traditional items of crockery. In the houses of the wealthy there were sometimes two to three hundred different kinds of plates and kitchen utensils hanging on the walls making them look like a multi-coloured mosaic... Karpathos has changed significantly since 1980, when only a few hotels were on the island. At that time, the capital, Pigadia, was a shadow of what it is today. In Pigadia, do not expect to find much in terms of how Karpathos used to be. Almost everything you'll see there is new. Pigadia is a modern town, with internet cafes, restaurants, and hotels practically everywhere. Other villages have not been affected to the same degree as the changes in Pigadia, but you'll always see indications that tourism is very important to the island's economy. KarpathosThe 1980s ushered in the construction of many new hotels and other buildings, and the 1990s brought in many foreigners (non-Karpathians) to the island. Pigadia is now a very much a melting pot, with people of many national origins calling Karpathos their new home (and many of them appear to have done so illegally).Although these people help the local economy, the arrival has not helped with the preservation of Karpathian traditions and customs. However, most of the blame for Karpathos' shortcomings goes to many younger Karpathians, who have decided that an easy lifestyle is worth more than honouring their ancestors by keeping their spirit alive (though this is happening all over the world). As much as things have changed, Karpathians as a whole have done an incredible job of retaining and celebrating their heritage, when compared to practically any other place in Greece. Karpathians, both in Karpathos and abroad, must be commended for the effort they have made to preserve their centuries-old traditions. On a sailing yacht or on a luxury motor yacht charters Karpathos is waiting for you with is charme of island out of time for dreamlike sailing escape among the Greek Islands of Dodecaneso.
