Details In 2006, Patras set off on a unique travel following the course of culture and development. Through music, drama, visual arts and dance, the capital of Achaia took advantage of the historical opportunity of being appointed as European Capital of Culture in order to come to the fore and show its virtues. This coin commemorates the event that signalled a new development course for Patras and serves as a reminder of the fact that culture can stimulate the economy and promote development.
