More parties will be held all over the Eurovision Song Contest week. This year, the Euroclub be located in Technopolis, the 'city of the arts'. The location, a former industrial building, offers three different venues for parties, meetings and concerts. Undoubtedly, several delegations will take the opportunity to organise their very own party in order to promote their representative in the contest.
The organisation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 has also thought about the touristic desires of the 37 delegations. On 14th and 15th May, the artists from the 37 delegations can enjoy a day cruise to three islands: Aegina, Poros and Hydra. On 16th and 17th May, they will be able to go sightseeing in the historic centre of Athens.
