The Municipality of Myrina is located on the butterfly-shaped island of Lemnos in the northeastern Aegean Sea. Steeped in history, tradition and mystery, this large and lovely volcanic island is becoming increasingly popular for tranquil, relaxing and pleasant vacations. The products of Lemnos are of excellent quality, especially its fragrant wines, delicious cheeses, honey and fresh fish. As for entertainment, the Municipality of Myrina organises various cultural events and concerts. For visitors who wish to combine fun and relaxation with creative and organised business travel, Myrina boasts a modern conference infrastructure with splendid conference units.

Named after the wife of King Tsoadas and first queen of the island, Myrina is the island’s capital and port. With two uncrowded, sandy beaches lying to either side, Myrina is a very beautiful town bisected by its dominating hilltop castle, once a stronghold for locals and foreigners, today a refuge for free-roaming deer. Built on a steep rocky peninsula connected with the land on the east side, the fortress took its present form in 1207, when the Venetian Grand Duke of Lemnos fortified Myrina. After extensive repairs in 1990-91, the monument is open to the public. Handsome old stone-houses and mansions, narrow cobblestone alleys, attractive taverns, fish in abundance, choice local wine, hospitable people are typical features of Myrina. Crowned by small hills on the northeast, the city opens to the vastness of the Aegean in the south allowing for magnificent and rare sunset vistas. Sunset over the Romeikos Yalos of Myrina, with its marvellous view of Mount Athos beyond, is an unforgettable and rare spectacle. A stroll around the port of Myrina with its traditional ambience, fish tavernas and the waves lapping against the quay is a unique experience.

Housed in a neoclassical, two-storey building, the Archaeological Museum features a rich collection of classical and prehistoric finds. Of considerable interest is the Ecclesiastical Museum of the Holy Metropolis of Lemnos exhibiting collections of church treasures, sacred vessels and vestments. The Cathedral of Aghia Triada (Holy Trinity), the churches of Aghios Panteleimon and Panagia (Virgin Mary) with their artful bell-towers are well worth a visit. Touring the municipality villages is easy since the island’s roads are in good condition. Nestled at the feet of Aghios Athanassions hill, Kaspakas extends to a splendid beach with recently built rental rooms, a recreation centre and a splendid sandy beach. At a distance of 6 km north of Myrina, the village of Kornos is built at the feet of a hill with magnificent neoclassical buildings and cool natural springs. East of Myrina and 2 km from Kornos, is Therma, a spa set in a glorious landscape. Its medicinal waters relieve a number of disorders and they are potable. Located at 4 km east of Myrina, the village of Thanos is built at the feet of a hill with a splendid sea view. The magnificent beach of Thanos, one of the most beautiful on the island, attracts many tourists during the summer months. Contending the title of the best tourist area, the quaint village of Platys is built amphitheatrically over its horseshoe-shaped beach. Its traditional houses, the narrow alleys and the villager’s warm hospitality cannot fail to impress its visitors. Platys boasts a remarkable tourist infrastructure including large and small hotels, clubs, restaurants and bars.

Daily flights connect Lemnos with Athens, Thessaloniki and Mytilini, while charter flights from a number of European capitals land on its modern airport. There are also several boat connections with Rafina, Thessaloniki, Kavala, Alexandroupolis and Kyllini.
