Construction of Greece’s first ever crematorium is slated to begin this year, after the relevant joint decision was signed by the ministries of health, environment and interior on April 11. “Our main goal is to get in line with international practices in developed countries where the state gives people the choice of cremation according to their religious or ideological beliefs,” Environment Minister Tina Birbili told reporters. At present, burial is the only option in Greece. According to the law, crematoriums will be created in cemeteries run by municipalities.
