Soak up and embrace the friendly and noble culture that combines centuries of fascinating history with an incredibly modern and tolerant way of life.

The Spartan World Championship festivities will include a myriad of local traditions and flavor, including local fare, cultural demonstrations, and some good ole fashion dune buggies.
