Agios Nikolaos

We have a little piece of the Greek culture for you! The festivity of Agios Nikolaos!

Assumption of Mary

Assumption of Mary or Dormition
of the Mother of God
The Dormition and the Assumption are different names for the same event, Mary's departure from the earth, although the beliefs are not entirely the same. The Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven or The Dormition of the Mother of God (Κοίμησις Θεοτόκου) was the bodily taking up of the Virgin into Heaven at the end of her earthly life.


Athens and Epidaurus Festival

This week I thought it would be quite interesting to talk about some part of Greece’s culture, more precisely one event. The “Athens and Epidaurus Festival” takes place in both Athens and Epidaurus as the name says and lasts from May to October. It offers music, dance and theatre performances. For more than 50 years this festival succeeded in promising its visitors magical summer nights.
