  • Work is going on at the moment to restore the site so you can only see it from outside and there is a lot of scaffolding about.  more »
  • The ancient theater of Thassos is very interesting place, which you can see when you are there. I was there in September 2017 and the view was perfect for pictures.  more »
  • The way to the ancient theater (quite difficult) starts from the marina, behind the Town Museum, where you often have the opportunity to see two locals playing backgammon. The climb follows a narrow, typically Greek street, and continues on some sort of stone steps. Once you get to the theater, you have the opportunity, after visiting, to continue on the same road to the ruins of the ancient Acropolis and the temple of the goddess Athena. Once you get to the theater, you can not fail to notice a few aspects: 1. the giant wish for beauty and art of so-called primitive people, since they accepted to made such an effort to enjoy them. 2. the special aesthetic sense that the same people showed, the panorama that can be admired from the places being superb. 3. the inscriptions carved in the stone of some places with the names of certain families, these being what we call "reserved places", which proves that the viewing of the theater shows at that time was not a hazardous act but a consistent activity. Drumul spre teatrul antic (destul de anevoios) pornește din portului marina, prin spatele Muzeului orășenesc unde, adeseori, aveți ocazia să vedeți doi localnici cum joacă table. Urcușul urmează o stradă îngustă, tipic grecească, și continuă pe un fel de trepte din piatră. Odată ajunși la teatru, aveți ocazia, după vizitarea lui, să vă continuați același drum spre ruinele vechii Acropole și ale templului zeiței Athena. Odată ajunși la teatru, nu se poate să nu remarcați câteva aspecte: 1. dorința uriașă de frumos și față de artă a unor oameni așa-zis primitivi, din moment ce acceptau să facă un asemenea efort pentru a se bucura de ele. 2. simțul estetic deosebit de care dădeau dovadă aceiași oameni, panorama care poate fi admirată din gradene fiind superbă. 3. inscripțiile cioplite în piatra unor gradene cu numele anumitor familii, acestea fiind ceea ce numim noi "locuri rezervate", ceea ce dovedește că vizionarea pieselor de teatru în acea vreme nu era un act fortuit, ci o activitate consecventă.
  • I is closed and you find that only after you clamb the hill
