How do we go to Vamvakou, what is Vamvakou Revival

Just a few kilometers from Sparta and Tripoli, on the slopes of Laconian Parnon and at an altitude of 903 m., there is a small picturesque village, Vamvakou.

A group of young people with origins and strong ties to the village wanted to write a new chapter in the history and progress of the place, creating, in 2018, the Vamvakou Revival organization, which implements the Vamvakou Revival initiative, having the moral and financial support from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

In recent years, the two organizations have shared a common vision which is the complete revitalization of the place, capitalizing on the history, human capital and natural wealth of the region. The vision is to create a “model” village based on the sustainable development of the place with the primary goal of returning permanent residents.

The main vehicle is the creation of employment opportunities and the provision of modern living conditions, so that in a few years Vamvakou will once again be bustling with life with families, children, and the first school bell will ring again. The intention is for Vamvakou to chart the path of revival, aspiring to act as a model for many more villages to follow in Greece and internationally.
