DRAMA – The 19th ‘Oniroupolis’ opened its doors on Sunday night at the central square of the northeastern Greek city of Drama to welcome children and adults to the magic Christmas village created by the organisers.

Since the first Oniroupolis was held in December 2003, it has been a reference point for the Christmas holidays throughout northern Greece.

According to the organisers, over 100 schools in Greece have expressed an interest in visiting the venue, while data from the travel agencies and the Drama hoteliers’ association show that Oniroupolis and the city of Drama are again one of the top destinations for the Christmas holidays.
