We honor the tsarouchi

Some see it as a military shoe and a little folklore. Through it, we see the painful but proud walk in campaigns and patriotic wars.

The “leventia” of Evzonas who fought with his bayonet in wild places. The slow, sacred movements at the monument of the Unknown Soldier and their unique sound that brings us shiver. Pride!

P.S. A pride that we, Greeks, have had in our souls for 200 years and no matter how much some greeks try to reduce it, it remains alive and whole within us.
