Maritime Week

The ‘Naval or Maritime Celebration Events’ draw their roots in antiquity, when the coastal cities organized events to celebrate the Dolphins, the Naming of the Ships, the Governing of Ships and the god of the Sea: Poseidon. In the beginning of the 19th century there was a revival of those celebrating events, which was dedicated to the sea and the people that lived near it.

Later on, these events –which first started in Hermoupolis- were adopted by the Greek State , renamed as ‘Maritime Week’ and it was established that it would be organized by both the Greek State and the Hellenic Navy.

The ‘Maritime Week’ is both an institution and a tradition for Greeks.
