Event description

Description

Come along and find more about the Greeks of Anatolia through a series of illustrated presentations by Dimitra Stasinopoulou.

In Greek mythology the Black Sea region is the region where Jason and the Argonauts sailed to find the Golden Fleece. The Amazons, female warriors in Greek mythology, lived also in Pontus. The Pontic Greeks had a continuous presence in the region of Pontus and East Anatolia from at least 700 BC until 1922. Even here, in the depths of Anatolia, the Greek spirit is still quite vivid and dominant. You can feel it around you while imagining it crossing the centuries of history. No Greek can ponder around here, without feeling a sense of pride, familiarity and affection.
