Statues in Nafplio, Southern Greece

Each country and city is decorated with countless statues, showing the glorious past, local history and achievements of both individuals and the people in general of that country. Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece, is no exception to this rule. Nafplio dedicates its statues mainly to the heroes of the independence war of Greece against the Ottoman Empire. However, some vandalism is evident in a number of statues here, which is an unfortunate reality.
