September 26, 2021

TRIPOLI, Greece – President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Sunday attended events commemorating the bicentennial of the siege of Tripolis by Greeks struggling for independence from the Ottoman Turks.

After attending a church service and laying wreaths at monuments in Platia Areos, Sakellaropoulou said that the siege that took place a few months after the start of the revolution was a pivotal event in the Greek War of Independence, establishing the revolution in the Peloponnese and inspiring the revolting Greeks. "Two hundred years later, our homeland is a modern state of law in the heart of the European Union that guarantees stability and peaceful coexistence in the region, without giving up its sovereign rights," she noted. 

The president also attended a parade and was given a tour of the Collection of Georgios Gaitanaris and Io Dolka on "Depictions & Reconstructions of the Greek-s

peaking World from the 18th to the 21st Centuries" at the Apostolopoulio Cultural Center.
