Lakki

The second pole, Lakki, is the central harbor of the island. Lakki is the place where mainly suplocal facilities take place: harbor, hospital, and facilities such as: Retail trade, Catering Leisure, Public and Municipal Services (Port Authority, Police, DEYAL), Education (two kindergartens, elementary school, high school and TEE.), the Municipal Culture, the Archaeological Museum, the Tax Office, the Post Office, OTE, the Bank, the local radio station. As one of the largest ports of the Mediterranean, Lakki hosts a plethora of modern installations and service units for yachts. It is located 4 km south of the island's capital. The village consists of beautiful neoclassical buildings, fine examples of Italian architecture located right by the sea. These unique collection of historic buildings overlooking the port, match perfectly with the rest of the traditional whitewashed houses and preserve the cultural heritage of the village. The wide streets of Lakki are covered with pine trees and offer an easy access to the other villages of Leros. Leros has also a remarkable alternative port that is used infrequently, from passenger ships, when weather conditions do not allow the approach to the main port of Lakki. North of Lakki, residential clusters have been developed, such as Saint John the Theologian and Kamaraki, acting as the outskirts of Lakki and Myloi Plaka, particularly extensive and densely built area, with difficulty of access and lack of organization and infrastructure. In Southeast are the limits of the village Temenia, with no social infrastructure, and which may be regarded as belonging to the suburban area of Lakki.
