  • [01] Madame Tussaud exhibits a hit with public at TIF

  • [01] Madame Tussaud exhibits a hit with public at TIF

    Hundreds of visitors at the 72nd Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on Sunday queued up to have their photographs taken with three of most important political leaders that marked Greece's history in the last century. Since the trade fair opened its doors to the public on Saturday, people have flocked to the tourism ministry's pavilion where the wax figures of Eleftherios Venizelos, Constantine Karamanlis senior and Andreas Papandreou, on loan from the Madame Tussaud's wax museum in London, are on display.

    According to Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) staff, photographs with the wax figures and members of the public are being taken at a rate of approximately one a minute.

    The three wax figures, which have left the Madame Tussaud's museum for the first time at the request of TIF organisers Helexpo, have been put on display in a specially prepared area that is kept at the required temperature - not more than 21 degrees Celsius - and guarded with special security measures.

    The public can see and be photographed with the wax figures at close hand during TIF opening hours, which are from 5pm-11pm on week days and between 10am-10pm at weekends. The three wax figures were unveiled at Madame Tussaud's in November 2006, in the presence of current Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.
