Maybe the most characteristic manifestation of the ancient Dionysian cult is the custom of the Bourani carnival in Tyrnavos, Thessaly, where celebrations involve drinking the local wine and tsipouro (a local distilled spirit) and then dancing, holding phallic simulacra. BOREAS Art & Nature Travel Services is the only travel agency that can take you directly to the heart of the ancient spirit and allow you to live it instead of just admiring it behind locked glass showcases in museum rooms. This is your chance to live and taste an ancient celebration, a journey back in time that will bring you all the emotions and images of a culture you perhaps thought extinguished!
