We call it for the moment:

project description of The Salamis Project:
The aim of the Historical Educational Park is to explain in as many
ways as possible the importance and history of the Battle of Salamis.
It's influence on Europe, world history and our civilization. We
expect this project will attract visitors to all of Salamis.
To create also a project where people can be trained for a job and
where the unemployed can find new ways (see for example:
www.bataviawerf.nl ) to work and to preserve our shipping heritage.
Besides it is time to restore Old Salamis harbor to it's old glory,
which is also our intention ( see Old Salamis harbor).
