The Delphic Games or Pythian Games were one of the four Panhellenic Games of Ancient Greece, a forerunner of the modern Olympic Games, held every four years at the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi.

Mission of the International Delphic Council

“Similar to the Olympic idea which unites people worldwide in their excitement for sports, the Delphic Games of the Modern Era are uniting people of all nations through arts and culture. They offer a unique forum for a peaceful dialogue of all cultures.”


Eva Palmer-Sikelianos (1874 – 1952)

Eva Palmer together with her husband Sikelianos organized in Delphos the Delphic games of the modern era in 1927.

The International Delphic Council (IDC) with headquarters in Berlin was founded in 1994 at the Schönhausen Palace.[6] Since 1995 the IDC actively supports the creation of the National Delphic organizations.
