One of the most interesting and inspirational places for lovers of contemporary art. The Frissiras museum is quite the hidden gem among the multitude of historic and larger than life museums. In a city with so much history it is refreshing to see contemporary art gain as much appreciation as in the eyes of the collector who funded this place. This is the only museum for contemporary European painting in Greece. It holds 3500 private pieces of the founder, Vlassis Flissaras´ private collection. The museum opened its doors in 2000, but Vlassis has been collecting art since 1978. Since his first pieces his aim has been to create a collection entirely out of paintings centered around the human body and representation style art.
