Entry to State Archaeological Sites, Museums and Monuments will be free on weekends on the occasion of the European Heritage Days. The annual pan-European event will also be celebrated in Greece on September 24-26, the culture ministry said Thursday.
This year, the main theme of the holidays on the European continent is “Heritage: All Inclusive”.
In Greece, two separate themes were announced: “Train Ride” for the Year of European Railways 2021 and a special look at the life and work of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first President of Greece since independence from the Ottomans, in the context of the bicentennial of the Greek Revolution of 1821.
European Heritage Days are held every September in the 50 signatory countries of the European Cultural Convention and are organized in close collaboration with national coordinators in each country, including local authorities, civic and private groups and volunteers.
It was previously announced that the Acropolis, which will also offer free admission this weekend, will close to the public at 5:30 pm in conjunction with an EU event there.
