Thrace Ethnological & Folklore Museum - Alexandroupolis

The stone, neo-classical 1899 building has been restored using modern materials and the most up-to-date restoration techniques in order to meet the demands of contemporary museum exhibitions.

The ‘’Aggelikh Gianakidou’’ ethnological museum is an entirely self-funded project and operates under the legal form of a non-profit organization.
The Museum includes:

  • Ground floor: 161, 4 m2
  • Basement: 130, 5 m2
  • Adjacent building: 35m2


The café and gift shop are situated in the roofed garden of the museum.
Apart from providing a fascinating insight into the folklore and traditions of Thrace, the museum aims to research, present and promote the culture of Thrace.
The museum aspires to create a lively meeting point where visitors will immerse into the culture of Thrace and a chance to reevaluate tradition as a whole.

The stone neo-classical house was built in 1899 and it served as the country home to Altinalmazi, a business man from Adrianopolis. The building was bought by merchant Chatzikonstanti Stefanou and was given to his granddaughter Chrysoula Vasiliou Zafiriou-Magou as a dowry. She later became the wife of lawyer, MP and then minister of nautical trade Grigorios Chrisostomou during 1948-49.

Sofoklis Venizelos was a guest at this house in January 1951. Today it belongs to Zafiria Chrysostomou. On 2/1/1993 the building was declared preserved under the relevant law.

The house was restored in 1998 by the Polichronis Giannakidis family in order to be transformed into the Ethnological Museum of Thrace. The Museum’s new mission is not only to provide a centre for acquainting visitors with the Thracean culture, but to serve as a base for research and spiritual creativity that uses the primeval memory and tradition as inspiration and bridges the gap between the old and the new with the wisdom of folklore tradition.
