PARKOUR – “THE ART OF FLYING”
Each year, many events are taking place throughout the world and as most free runners admit, a great place to practice parkour is Santorini. Santorini, formed by countless volcanic eruptions, is world-famous for its spectacular scenery and unique beauty. For these daredevil contestants, the curved white buildings which seem like a natural extension of the island represent an ideal challenge and they respond by offering thrilling performances against a sunset backdrop.
Hundreds of contestants from all over the world, along with their friends, meet up on here on this island. In fact, many free runners go to Santorini to practice parkour over the rooftops of Oia and Fira, having the Cycladic Island’s architecture as a backdrop, the athletes offered a spectacular show to the audience in front of the island’s caldera.
