Tag: Syntagma Square
The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have been invited by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to participate in the events marking the bicentenary of the Greek War of Independence and will be attending a reception at the newly re-opened National Gallery of Greece on the evening of March 24.
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.
