Walking with the GODS-
The Mythological Walk of Thessaloniki

This walk is an interactive performance for romantics! Once Upon a Time is a narration of myths and legends that reflect the beliefs and culture of a people who gave human-like characteristics to divinity. 

These Gods were not perfect – not by a long shot. They were living actively , singing, dancing, falling in love, hating and cheating one another. In turn, they fall victims of their pride and vices, but they nevertheless inspired the old Greeks to become better both individually and as a whole.
