On January 12, the city will be named capital of culture which will kick off a range of exhibitions and events. In ancient times, a 'treasury' was a small, richly sculpted building which was used to house precious objects. For this exhibition, 29 relics considered national treasures in Greece will go on display for the first time outside their home country. Thanks to new technology, visitors will be able to visit a 3D reconstitution of this building.
