One of the biggest ski centers in Southern Greece – Kalavryta, located near the city of Patras, in Peloponnese, will receive an investment of around 20 million euro, said George Lazouras, mayor of the region. The funds are expected to come from Greece’s public investment program and it will transform the area completely.

The investment will boost the local economy, as it would make Kalavryta ski center operational throughout the year, attracting thousands of more tourists. The modernization of the center’s facilities will make its summer operation reality, with mountain trails, lifts, and paths to the peak of Helmos mountain, where the infamous Helmos Observatory is located with its telescope ‘Aristarchos’.
