George Koundouriotis - One Day Cruise
Hydra is an island of large families with history and nautical tradition. The brothers Lazaros and George Kountouriotis, members of an old maritime family on the island, were distinguished in politics, shipping, the arts and commerce. They both played an important role in the Civil War of 1823-1825. Both Kountouriotis houses in Hydra are now open to the public.
