It was back in December 2011, when Santa Claus first transformed the Mill of Matsopoulos in Trikala into Greece's largest Christmas theme park, called the "Mill of Elves". Since then, locals have worked tirelessly to give joy to the young and old every year over the Festive Season.

‘The Nutcracker’, the famous Christmas story of all times is coming to life at this year’s Mill of Elves, with guests following a magic trip of the Wooden Nutcracker and Little Clara in the 4 Fairy Kingdoms. Here you can meet the Candy Fairy, the Queen of Flowers, the Ballerina of Toys and 'Santa Claus in the Ice Kingdom'!

The “Mill of Elves,” used to be a water mill entirely built of stone and named Matsopoulos Mill. Now, every December it is transformed into a festive toy and confectionery factory, where Santa Claus and his Elves welcome guests from near and far, turning the space into a magical kingdom.
