One of the most popular festivals in Greece is that of Naousa, which focuses on the custom of the Nizamikos – a Greek dance of Naousa for men. The Nizamikos danced every year at the carnival of Naousa is called “Janissaries and Boules” (Γενίτσαροι και Μπούλες).
The Presidential Guard (Προεδρική Φρουρά) are the epitome of bravery and freedom, honouring the heroes thousands of years on, who fought and sacrificed for the land on which they stand on.
The Evzones guards are a true living attraction of the city and an eternal symbol of Greece, synonymous to valour and heroism. The Athens City Museum is dedicating its new exhibition to these elite soldiers, with portraits, sculptures, embroideries and works of contemporary Greek art, as well as souvenirs, rare photographs, archival material, unreleased historical relics and collectibles from public and private collections that aim to tell the story of Evzones throughout the years of the Greek revolution.
