Location of Syros
Syros is an island on the Aegean Sea in Greece. It’s a member of the Cyclades and it lies south from Andros. About 21 507 residents live on its 84 km2 area.
History of Syros
The findings revealed through digs prove that the area was already inhabited from the bronze age. In the 5th century, BC Phoenicians settled down here. Syros had a great number of Roman Catholic residents in the middle age. Monks and Jesuits came to the island in the 17th and 18th century. At this time sailing and trade were the most significant industries of the region. At the time of the war for independence, thousands of refugees came to Syros from the islands attacked by the Turks. They brought their Greek Orthodox beliefs with them. At the same time, the trade of the region had an uplift, which made Syros the economic, naval, and cultural canter of Greece in the 19th century. The significance of the island’s industrial yachtbuilding sector has decreased. In terms of the textile industry, gardening, service, and tourism, however, it became an important area.

Weather of Syros
The Greek coast has a Mediterranean climate. The air of the country is very clean and dry from spring to early autumn. There’s a lot of sunshine, while the amount of rain usually decreases from the west to the east. In summer, we almost never see any clouds in the sky. Rain is practically an unknown guest in the summer months. The sea can heat up to 23-25 °C from June to August. Even in October, it’s still 23 °C. The area of Greece is constantly windy, these winds, however, are always changing. The wind that dominates summer months is called Meltemi. From June, it blows from the northwest and the northeast. It reaches its full strength, from 5 to 8 on the Beaufort scale, in July and August.
The sea-wind comes in late September or early October, which blows from the southeast and the southwest. It’s a specifically southern wind, that dominates mostly in spring and fall with a strength of 2 to 4. Due to Greece’s typical winds, its most rewarding to plan a sailing route from the south to the north in spring and autumn, and from the north to the south in summer. The waving is more preferable compared to the Croatian archipelago since there’s a greater distance between the Greek islands. The current flows counterclockwise in the Eastern Mediterranean Basin, and northward along the Turkish coast. The water flows southward on the Eastern Greek coasts, but from the west side of Peloponnese Peninsula northern current dominates.
