The Zarifeios Pedagogical Academy

The neoclassical building of Zarifeos Pedagogical Academy is located in the western part of the National Independence Park. For more than half of the last century (1923-1947), it was the only top educational foundation throughout Western Thrace.

The marble bust of the founder Yeorgios Zarifis, is located in the garden in front of the building that now houses the experimental primary schools of the Primary Level Education Department of the Democritus University of Thrace.
