The famous Peace and Friendship Stadium, situated on the magnificent coast of Faliro, in the south of Athens, very close to the port of Piraeus, is a jewel of modern architectural style.
The stadium enjoyed international prestige and an enviable reputation thanks to its use as a venue for important European and international sport championships as well as professional and commercial fairs.
Its renovation was undertaken by the General Secretariat of Sports (GSS) and resulted in a 13,200 seated capacity stadium, which will host during the Olympic Games the exciting Volleyball contest and in the future other sport, social, commercial and cultural events.
