East Macedonia & Thrace

Ecclesiastic museum of Drama


The museum of the Holy Metropolis of Drama, was founded during the ministry of the Metropolitan Dionysios A, and is housed in newly renovated five-storey wing of the Episcopal Palace of Drama in Venizelos Street. In the spacious and well-decorated rooms priceless ecclesiastical treasures of spiritual and artistic value are exposed. The images of the Holy Mary and of Christ of 13th century, icons of the 17th and especially of the 19th century, adorn and consecrate the space. Still, vestments, holy vessels and their covers, many of which are from the 19th century, souvenirs of Chrysostom of Drama and Smyrna, are important exhibits of the museum. Many of the exhibits are relics carried by refugees from Asia Minor and Pontus, in 1922, from the ancient churches to the new home, as the most valuable charge of the time of uprooting. Organized pilgrims and visitors of the city are encouraged to contact the office of the Metropolis of Drama before their visit to the museum.
