»People are very polite, enjoyable and healthy, they live well and have fun». Swedish travelersʼ narratives from 18th century Greece

Lecture by Dr Vassilios Sabatakakis, Modern Greek Studies, Lund University

Published: 26/02/2019

Dr. Vasilis Sabatakakis will give a talk entitled ”People are very polite, enjoyable and healthy, they live well and have fun”. Swedish travelersʼ narratives from 18th century Greece, at the Swedish Institute on Tuesday 5 March at 19.00.

Since the mid-17th century several Swedish travellers visited Greece for the purpose of seeing the leavings of the ancient times, finding manuscripts of the New Testament, examining plants and herbs and more. Among these travellers, two of them inherited us valuable material: Jacob Jonas Björnståhl and Adolf Fredrik Sturtzenbecker. Björnståhl visited Thessaly, and he was the first scientist to visit this part of Greece. Adolf Fredric Sturtzenbecker visited Thessaloniki, Epirus, Thessaly and Central Greece. Both died in Greece leaving behind travel journals and many notes that reveal an interesting picture of Greece of that period.

Greece through the eyes of the travellers from the North

The Nordic Narrative in Athens

Published: 14/02/2019

In the presence of all the Nordics in Athens, the official opening of the exhibition "Greece through the eyes of the travellers from the North" will take place at the Swedish Institute on Tuesday 19 February at 19.00 with a lecture on "Nordic travellers in Greece: From the Vikings until Today".

The old admiral [Kanaris], who knew of our visit, came to meet us at the top of the stairs. I must confess I was somewhat surprised when I saw him, as he was a small but strongly-built man, with youthful animation in his movements and a youthful bloom on his face. He greeted us unassumingly and, after welcoming us politely, he ushered us into the house. […] Whatever opinion people may entertain of Kanaris as a politician, his honest and unpretentious character seems to be universally acknowledged. The Psariot hero has indeed made Admiral but has never wished to command a fleet, or indeed any vessel other than his fireship, maintaining that he is unfit for any other job. Fredrika Bremer (Sweden) 1859
