Great Club of Kavala Reveals Its Grandeur after Restoration

March 5, 2020

KAVALA, Greece – One hundred and ten years after its inauguration, the Great Club (Megali Leschi) of Kavala, one of the most iconic and historic buildings of the northern Greek city, will reopen its heavy wooden doors after undergoing a major restoration.

The Great Club was founded in 1910 by the Philoptochos Adelfotis Kyrion Kavalas (a women’s charity for the poor) in order to house the Club for the Greek Community of Kavala. From an architectural perspective, the Great Club is one of the most exceptional examples of Austrian baroque in Europe and some believe that it imitates part of the Vienna Concert Hall (Musikverein).

The building was renovated by the Municipality of Kavala, in collaboration with the Kavala-Thassos Ephorate of Antiquities, promoting its architectural virtues and adapting it to cultural uses. The building’s architecture is in the spirit of that time, which wove together the desire to display power and wealth with a sense of national pride in the ancient Greek traditions.


In the heart of Epirus, in the mountainous triangle of Ioannina, Zagorohoria, and Tzoumerka, spending time there is like listening to missionaries preach about the ‘faith’, but in this case, Nature that surrounds you is teaching the meaning of life, and observing Nature’s festival will show you now to break your everyday habits, helping you get back your life.
