Folklore Museum of Cappadocians in Alexandroupolis
Visit at a chiseled house of Cappadocia? Yet, it is possible at the Folklore Museum of Cappadocians in Alexandroupolis.
The Cappadocian Association of Alexandroupolis made sure to collect or did what was necessary in order to create a space that exudes the atmosphere of Cappadocia before the uprooting. The temperature I maintained as it did then in the chiseled houses, with the help of a special mechanism. Then, the visitors of the Folklore Museum of Cappadocians in Alexandroupolis can admire various exhibits, among which are an “arabas” (four-wheel carriage), traditional costumes, books and tools of that time, amulets and crosses of metropolitans and of course, the museum’s chapel, with icons saved and brought from the homeland.
The responsible of the Folklore Museum of Cappadocians in Alexandroupolis, Mr. Zisis Mpourmadis coordinates the space and organizes guided tours on the history of Cappadocia, the special soil morphology and the influence that various factors had on people’s daily lives.
Opening hours of the Folklore Museum of Cappadocians in Alexandroupolis: Sunday 10:00 to 13:00 and 17:00 to 21:00.
