Filiki Eteria (Greek meaning ‘society of friends’) has been functioning in Odesa since 1979 as a branch of the Regional History Museum. In the days leading up to the city’s 200th anniversary, Odesa opened the Greek Cultural Foundation, which is also a functioning part of the museum. These buildings originally belonged to Greeks, and in 1814 functioned as the secret meeting place for the establishment of the revolutionary organisation Filiki Eteria, whose objective was independence for all Greeks from Turkish occupation. The history of the creation, administration and activities of Filiki Eteria are on display. The exhibitions are a stirring tribute to the heroic revolutionary members of Odesa’s Greek community. Enjoy excursions, lectures, thematic conferences and student oriented lectures. Works continue to be updated and expanded.
