A few words about Karpathos:
Karpathos (ΚΑΡΠΑΘΟΣ in Greek) is the second largest of the Greek Dodecanese
islands, in southeast Aegean sea.
The island is located about 30 miles south-west of Rhodes, in
that part of the Mediterranean which was called, after it, the "Carpathian
Sea" (Carpathium Mare).
The latest estimate of the island's permanent population is
around 6000 people. This number more than doubles in the summer months as many
Karpathian immigrants with their families return to the island for their
vacation. Also, taking into consideration the number of tourists that visit,
there can be up to 20,000 people on the island during the peak summer months.
It was both in ancient and medieval times closely connected with Rhodes; it was held by noble families under Venetian suzerainty, notably the Cornari from 1306 to 1540, when it finally passed into the possession of the Turks. From its remote position Karpathos has preserved many peculiarities of dress, customs and dialect, the last resembling those of Rhodes and Cyprus.
