Celebrating NIKOS KAZANTZAKIS in Kalogria (Stoupa):
Around 1917 Nikos Kazantzakis came to Stoupa, heard of a certain lignite mine and met a man who inspired him a long time later to write one of his most famous books. We want to celebrate the year this famous writer came to the area. 

The ARTS CLUB STOUPA has worked out an event in cooperation with the arts group NARTURA from Kalamata. If you want to know more about Nikos Kazantzakis, come to Kalogria – if you just want to have fun and dance, this is the place!
