When you travel through the Aegean Sea, you will be landing at an island surrounded by turquoise waters hidden in the ocean holding about 7.89 square miles of nature titled ‘Antikythera.’

With Antikythera having only one town called Potamos, a 2000-year old device recognized as the 1st computer: The Antikythera Mechanism was discovered there. While it has gone into oblivion, local governors are presently looking for residents willing to move in.

Just recently, the Island unveiled a re-population project with the assistance and sponsorship of the Orthodox Church of Greece. It aimed at attracting large families willing to change their lives and moving to a stunning location. Lucky ones will be rewarded with a portion of land to grow food, a house, a business and a monthly salary of approximately $560 within the first three years.

Over time, the Island has been losing its community as a result of the decrease in birth rate and as a result of the migration of young adults to several other cities in search of economic opportunities. Hence, the project is mainly for families with children.

Giving more attention to Greek Citizen applicants, people from other nationalities are, however, equally welcome to apply. Specifically, a local school has re-opened after being closed for over 24years.

#5 The Island Is Remote And Not Connected
