Aristotle’s park

Aristotle’s park

The Aristotle's Park, a unique theme park of Halkidiki, is located in a most beautiful area with a marvellous view
towards the Gulf of Ierissos and the whole peninsula of Athos.

 

The park is dedicated to the famous Greek philosopher, Aristotle and includes a series of interesting instruments which when used properly will show the phenomena of nature. These experimental instruments, operating by rules of physics are mentioned in Aristotle’s textbooks and especially in the one called “The Naturals”.

 

The 12 interactive instruments include a prism, optical discs, a water turbine, a telescope, sounding bars (pentaphone), a compass, lens, a solar clock, the alarm clock of Aristostle, inertia spheres, parabolic reflectors and a pendulum – all illustrating important phenomena studied by the great philosopher and taught to his students (important note: one of his students was Alexander the Great!).

The park has become a favourite destination for every visitor, families and children, since it combines recreation, entertainment and education. It is estimated that has more than 15.000 visitors during the summer.

Worth it to see:

Aristotle was a great walker who’d lecture his students as they wandered. You can follow his footsteps along the Aristotle's Route (14klm | one way | difficulty: medium), one of the area’s hiking routes that connects Ancient Stagira to Aristotle's park.
