    Prime Minister Costas Simitis on Saturday morning visited at Ancient Olympia the under renovation Old Museum which following its restoration will be transformed into an Olympic Games museum.

    Furthermore, Simitis also visited the under reconstruction and retransformation of the New Archaeological Museum.

    The prime minister also visited the work site where construction is underway of the regional Ancient Olympia motorway which is a section of the national Pyrgos-Olympia-Vytina-Tripoli highway.

    Simitis was accompanied by Culture Ministry General Secretary Lina Mendoni and Olympic Games General Secretary Kostas Kartalis.

    The Action Programme for Ancient Olympia does not conclude with the promotion of the ancient sites, but also aims at the total reform of the city with interventions in the sectors of culture, sports, infrasructure, health and environmental training.

    Simitis, following his tour of the old museum, the new ancient museum amd the regional Ancient Olympia motorway, told reporters:''The Olympic Games will be held in Athens in one year's time and Olympia will be at the epicentre of world interest. These 2004 Olympic Games have a particularity which Olympic Games usually do not possess. They are Games which show the history of the Olympic Games. They also show that Greece's relations with the Games are connected with the history of humanity and this is shown particularly in Olympia.''
