The 2008 hit film Mamma Mia! was adored by millions of people all over the world. To provide the impression that the tale was taking place on the mythical island of Kalokairi, many of the scenes for the well-known film were filmed on the Greek islands of Skópelos and Skiathos. Mamma Mia! was the most popular of all the movies filmed on the island. The thriller Act of Piracy (1988), and The Telemachy (2012) made up the rest of the top three most popular movies filmed on this gorgeous island.
The island developed into a thriving shipbuilding hub during the 1900s. The wood used to construct the ships came from the island’s extensive pine trees. Even today, a small shipyard in the island’s town’s northern section continues to construct caiques, a traditional style of Greek boat.
