There are performances of classical music, jazz concerts, Christmas carols, Byzantine hymns and traditional dancing.

Don’t forget to visit the National Garden, where the young and the young at heart are invited to follow a path inside the garden and discover the Garden of Fairytales, an gorgeous imaginary land to experience the magical world of fairytales, not only from Greece, but also from other countries from around the world.

The Biscuit House with its Biscuit People, Santa Claus' house, the Workshop of Wishes, the Iceman, the Hut of the Little Drummer Boys, and the Goblins of the Windmill are just some of the magical places you will find to explore in this Garden.

And for the big kids, do not miss the pre-Christmas and new year’s eve parties held in the enchanted garden after the little ones have gone to bed!
