The Aristotle Park, is the only theme park in northern Greece that combines entertainment and education. Located at an altitude of 500 meters, near the historical village of Stageira, presents the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle through an interactive communication with the visitors. The wonderful location was already chosen in 1956 to host the statue of Aristotle, made by sculptor Nicholas.
A series of experimental instruments which when used properly reflect the phenomena of nature is the core of Aristotle park. All mentioned in Aristotle’s corpus “The Physics” are accompanied by relevant subparagraphs posted on plates, from the preserved work of the great philosopher. For example the famous compass, which stands near the statue, symbolizes that Aristotle’s philosophy has spread worldwide but also displays the direction and distance of the most famous cities in the world, in relation to the park. The optical discs demonstrate the effect of motion and the eye. The discs spin at a high speed and create a motion effect that the brain adapts to. When you then look at something stationary, it appears to be moving. The famous Pentaphone is compared with a giant xylophone which is created by five large granite pieces that are calculated to give off a certain sound, on 5 note scale. The collection of the instruments also consists of a telescope, a prism, a solar clock, a lens, a pendulum, a water turbine, inertia spheres and parabolic reflectors– all illustrating important phenomena studied by the great philosopher.
