Presentation

About the end of World War II in 1943, the defeat of Italian troops led the German occupation of the island of Kos , this brutal occupation ended May 9, 1945 with the surrender of Germany. Kos first passed under British administration, the English had an inclination to enter the Dodecanese under the British Empire, but this maneuver failed: the United Kingdom finally gave the Dodecanese islands to Greece in 1947.

Kos has always been an island whose economy was based on agriculture, but the rapid growth of tourism since the 1980s has led largely abandoning this agriculture. Today, the island of Kos is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Aegean Sea and annually attracts masses of tourists.
