The Toumba takes part in Open House once more
In one of the most important international initiatives for the promotion of great architecture, Open House, PAOK and the Toumba stadium are participating for the fourth time. On Saturday, November 26, the public will be able to visit the Toumba, take a guided tour of PAOK’s historic stadium, designed by architect Minas Trembela, and learn about the architecture of the stadium and its interior spaces.
Visitors will have the rare opportunity to take a guided tour of the stadium’s renovated interior, in addition to the pitch area. Visitors are guided by specially trained volunteers, who register and record the visitors, thus respecting the order of priority and visitor details for security reasons, and then lead the public in groups to the visitable areas of the building.
Visiting hours at the Toumba are on Saturday 26.11 from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm.
What is Open House?
The idea of Open House started in London in 1992 and until today has spread to many cities around the world. The Open House event invites the general public to explore and understand the value of architecture.
Every year for two days, public and private buildings open their doors to the public for free and the city turns into a large museum, with exhibits of its own buildings and architecture. In Thessaloniki, Open House has now become an institution as it takes place for the tenth consecutive year on November 26 and 27, 2022.
In this year’s renewed program of OPEN HOUSE Thessaloniki, participants will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of 67 buildings and spaces of architectural interest and 3 outdoor routes. Public buildings, private apartments, single-family houses, educational spaces, offices, clinics, hospitals, theaters, churches, museums, monuments, catacombs… all make up this year’s program and over 500 volunteers are enlisted to show you around! Entry is free for all and no reservations are made.
