Port of Syros

Aloha Everyone,

The Frigate Shtandart was the first frigate of the Russian Baltic fleet. Built by Dutch shipwrights, she was launched in 1703 and decommissioned in 1727. The replica built in 1999 created lots of enthusiasm. As an exhibition vessel, she visits different ports.

There are constant activities within the Port of Syros. At least two ferry route service between Syros and Piraeus (Athens) come in and out out every day. From our hotel room, we can hear distinctive low horn of Blue Star Ferries’ arrivals and departures. Additional traffic include other ferries servicing different islands of Cyclades and Dodecanese.

Onex Neorion Shipyard is located at one end of the port. The shipyard and its dry dock offers maintenance services, and shipbuilding for commercial, military or recreational vessels in the region and the Middle East.

Aloha -- Cathi
