from the Olympic Games.
A Unique Exhibition
The exhibition, taking advantage of the possibilities of modern technology, presents in an original way the character of the Olympic Games during Antiquity and, mainly, in modern times and stimulates thinking regarding the wider social meaning of the supreme athletic event of the planet. >>>
In modern times the concept of the hero has changed. There
are no longer heroes of war but of peace, such as the Olympic
Victors. The Foundation of the Hellenic World wishes to present
such heroes and for this reason it has created theeducational
programme "The Olympic Hero", which takes place daily at FHW's
cultural centre Hellenic Cosmos.
Travel to Ancient Olympia and visit the magnificent temple of Zeus as well as the Workshop of Phidias, where the sculptor created the famous statue of Zeus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Watch representations of Olympic sports come to life in front of your eyes by bringing together pieces of ancient vessels. All these, and much more, take place at "Kivotos" and the "Magic Screen", FHW's two Virtual Reality systems, which transport you through space and time covering the whole span of Hellenic History.
