Valsamidis Sea World Museum

Exploring the seabed of Kalymnos for more than 60 years, Stavros became a scuba diving legend.

Stavros collected thousands of sea findings and created the Valsamidis Sea World Museum. An impressive collection that everyone should see, at the village of Vlichadia Kalymnos.
