    How the trainees of the Second  Chance School  of Serres spend their free time

    As soon as I finish my work in my free time left I call one of my friends and get off for our morning stroll. We sit in a café and start gossiping. Then we ride our cars and go to the internet café where we play games. After 3 hours playing we go home for a couple of sleeping hours. In the evening we start again our car rides and continue with our enjoyment. We usually dance, drink and listen to music at full blast. Finally at about 8 in the morning we start for our houses.

    Culture and leisure in Klaipeda

    Filed under: Leisure in our town. — pikrides @ 6:59

    Klaipėda is a very beautiful and dynamic city with a unique face. Many national and international events take place every year in Klaipėda. Lodging and leisure services have been well developed, with many modern, high-class hotels, cafes, restaurants, clubs and other entertainment sites inviting the town’s guests.

    The largest events in Klaipėda’s cultural life are the summer festivals: the Sea festival, which has been celebrated since 1934, and the Castle Jazz Festival. During these festivals, Klaipėda becomes the so-called “summer capital,” attracting up to a million visitors to more than 100 organized events. For all these years, all of the festival performances have remained free of charge.

    Klaipėda will have the honour of being the final port for the 2009 Tall Ships’ Races (July 31-August 03). In addition to this great maritime event, in 2009, all of Lithuania will celebrate the millennium anniversary of the first reference to the country’s name.

    From July 22-26, 2009, KlaipÄ—da will have the honour of becoming the 25th city to host the 46th annual “Europeade.” During this outstanding festival, approximately 5000 participants from over 20 countries will represent their cultures through dance, songs, and crafts.

     

     

     

     

    Many entertainment activities are offered in Klaipėda: recreational fishing, swimming, diving, yachting, parachute jumps, scenic flights, bowling and billiard clubs, nightclubs, casino, bars, restaurants, and more. For those who love active recreation, the city’s splendid bicycle route is a very good choice. As part of the European Cycle Route network, EuroVelo, this excellent path allows cyclists to reach both Nida and Palanga; two of Lithuania’s finest resorts. Comprising three separate segments, the coastal path of the bicycle route spans 216 km. Cyclists who start their journey in Klaipėda may choose to travel north towards the Latvian border, across the Curonian Lagoon to Kursiu Nerija (Nida), or south along the coast to Rusne Island.

    Klaipėda is surrounded by white sandy beaches, natural sand dunes, the Baltic Sea, and the Curonian Lagoon. The 98 km long Curonian Spit is covered in pure, white sand, and boasts having the best beaches in the Baltic region. On December 2, 2000, the Curonian Spit was inscribed into UNESCO’s World Heritage List as a valuable and unique cultural landscape in the Baltic region.

    A very important detail that Lithuania can definitely be proud of is the 6 white sand beaches on the Baltic coastline that have been awarded with a Blue Flag. The Blue Flag Program in Lithuania is run by a non-governmental environmental organization Lithuanian Green Movement which is an active member of Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

    An especially unique place in KlaipÄ—da is the Sea Museum and Dolphinarium, where visitors can see concerts and dolphin shows! Also, dolphin therapy is performed for mentally or physically handicapped children in order to improve their physical and emotional health. The Sea Museum, with its great variety of expositions, receives more visitors annually than any other museum in Lithuania.

    Many activities in Klaipėda highlight the importance of maritime culture: the summer regattas of yachts and sailing boats, cruise liners docking at Klaipėda’s port, ferries for passengers and freight; all of these things bring us closer to the sea.

    Famous persons in Serres

    Filed under: Famous Person in our Town — sylvi @ 5:06

    Emmanuel Papas

     

    Emmanuel Papas was born in Dovista in 1773, a village which is near Serres and is named now after him. His father Dimitrios, a wealthy notable of the area, was ordained a priest at a very young age and was soon honoured with a high church dignity. That is where the family name “Papas” (= priest) came from. After having received his basic education in his village, Emmanuel Papas moved to Serres in order to finish off his studies in the famous school of Serres. When he graduated from the School he moved back to Dovista where he got married. However, his business acumen brought him back to Serres when trade was really blooming. Soon he became a great Banker and a wholesale merchant, a respectable person even for the Turkish Beys. Papas was soon initiated in the “Society of Friends” (or “Filiki Etaireia” as it is well-known) by John Pharmakis and didn’t have any trouble introducing his four brothers into the Holy war of Independence as well as some of the most notable men of Dovista, who saw to arming the nearby villages.

    However, he had to leave Serres because of a severe dispute he had with the Serres’ Bey, and moved to Constantinople, where he had the chance to co-operate better with the members of the ‘Society of Friends’. Meanwhile, his fame concerning his patriotic actions had spread throughout every part of Greece. He had also planned an attempt on the Sultan’s life which finally failed because of betrayal.

    When the revolution was proclaimed, Emmanuel Papas left Constantinople and went to Agion Oros where he was welcomed with enthusiasm by the monks and was appointed Commander-in-Chief of Macedonia. As soon as he set up his headquarters in Agion Oros, he took action with his 2,500 men. Meanwhile, a revolutionary movement had broken out in Serres under the direction of the Arch Bishop, soon to be quelled. The city had narrowly escaped devastation and slaughter. That happened on 8th May 1821, the feast-day of John Theologos the Evangelist, who is considered to be the protector and saviour of Serres. So, 14 years later, in 1835, the inhabitants of Serres built the homonymous church in the area of Ano Kamenikia, in his honour. But although the city devastation was avoided, the avenging fury of the Turks broke out in Emmanouel Papas’ family. His wife and children were sent to prison. His property was confiscated and his house was burnt to the ground.

    But Papas himself continued the struggle in Halkidiki despite lack of help. While the Turks had started a general attack against the Greeks, Papas kept on appealing to Ypsilantis but nothing happened in the end. His achievements in Kassandra and the disposal of his property didn’t save the revolutionary movement. So after the expedition of Abdul Aboud, the destruction of Kassandra and the subordination of the monks of Agion Oros forced Papas to leave while the Turks were hounding him. He sailed for Hydra but because he was exhausted by the severities and the emotions of his tragic adventure, he died after a heart attack on the boat at exactly the moment that it was sailing round Kafirea. The hero’s body was taken to Hydra where he was buried with the trimmings of a general. In 1843, his name was hung up in the Greek Parliament as one of the protagonists of the Revolution of 1821.

    Constantine Karamanlis


    Constantine Karamanlis (1907-1998), president of Greece (1980-85, 1990-95) was born in Serres. A member of parliament in 1935-36, he was reelected in 1946 and held various cabinet posts until Oct., 1955, when he became Greece’s youngest premier. He held that post until June, 1963, except for brief intervals in 1958 and 1961, while his right-wing National Radical Union continued to gain majorities in the general elections. A partisan of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Karamanlis reached (1959) agreement with Great Britain and Turkey over Cyprus. In 1959 he announced a five-year plan (1960-64) for the Greek economy, emphasizing improvement of agricultural and industrial production. After his cabinet fell in 1963, Karamanlis went into exile abroad. He was a vocal opponent of the military junta that seized power in Greece in 1967. In July, 1974, the junta fell, following a disastrous military venture in Cyprus. Karamanlis returned as premier and leader of the New Democratic party, which gained a substantial majority in the elections of Nov., 1974. He began immediately to undo the work of the military government, reestablishing civil liberties and presiding over the restoration of democracy. A plebiscite in Dec., 1975, made Greece a republic and abolished the monarchy. Karamanlis served as prime minister until 1980 and as president from 1980 to 1985. He oversaw Greece’s entry (1981) into the European Community. He held the presidency again in 1990-95, and was succeeded by Kostis Stephanopoulos.
