Some of the status looked so fake. It is good to see it only to learn about he way Greeks used to live and fight.

This is the Madam Tussaud's of Ioannina. A time-travel through greek history, the turkish occupation and the greek uprising against the Turks. Single-handedly made by one man with vision, Mr Vrellis. Excellent work
