A theme park dedicated to the 1821 Revolution opened its gates in Sidirokastro, Serres, with a simple ceremony, taking all precautions against the spread of COVID-19.
The park stretches to a green olive grove, next to the Agia Paraskevi church, where the moments and protagonists of the National Uprising are projected with stands and three-dimensional depictions.
“Our goal is to reflect on the importance and significance of the Greek Revolution and the people, who, imbued with the ideals of patriotism and self-denial, gave us the precious good of freedom,” Father Pavlos Papadopoulos, Agia Paraskevi’s priest, said.
Father Papadopoulos was the brain behind this case, in collaboration with the Holy Diocese of Sidirokastro.
As part of the activities, a painting exhibition with the theme “1821” was held, in which more than 150 students from the primary schools of the city participated.
A board game competition was held at the same time on the theme of the “Revolution of 1821,” from the popular Desylla Company SA series, which sponsored the event as well.
