Greek Language & Orthodox Culture: From a Hydra Perspective

 

The Greek Orthodox Church dominates life in Hydra as it does throughout Greece. In Hydra there are so many churches and chapels that you could visit a different one every day of the year and not see them all.

 

The Orthodox religion is a Christian one which was practiced along the same lines as Catholism until it split from the Catholic Church a little bit more than 400 years ago.

 

On Hydra the calendar is punctuated with different religious celebrations, which always involve good-natured processions within the town, the largest of which is Paska Week (Orthodox Easter).
