About Athens

Athens is a city that gets its name from the Greek goddess of wisdom - Athena. It is the birthplace of European civilization. Despite thousands of years of wear and tear from wind and snow, it still exudes a unique charm. When you go to Athens, you will have the opportunity to see great ancient temples and exciting marketplaces. The grandiose achievements of the centuries enshroud the city at every turn. Athens is surrounded on three sides by mountains. The last side faces the Aegean Sea. The city is built around the Acropolis. Even though the Acropolis has already endured 2,000 years of wind and rain, warfare and modernization, people are still shocked by the remaining, albeit damaged, temples. Take a stroll through historic Pláka and choose one of the many restaurants to indulge in some mouthwatering Greek cuisine.

Museum
The Acropolis Museum is located in the southeast corner of the Acropolis. The entire interior of the pavilion is identical to the inner temple of the Parthenon. The exterior glass corridor is striking, and the soft natural light passes through the special glass to the venue. Uniform projection, almost perfection restores the simplicity of the sculptures and other works of art displayed in it, and the advanced design concept makes people feel like they are in the space-time corridor, between the ancient and the modern. In addition, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the Parthenon hundreds of meters away from the corridor and the city of Athens.

Historical Site
The Acropolis is located in the southwest portion of central Athens. It is one of Athens' greatest landmarks and a symbol of ancient Greece. The Acropolis consists of ancient architectural relics such as the Parthenon, the Temple of Erektio and the Temple of Athena. The Acropolis is steep, with only a channel in the west, which serves as a natural barrier. Actually, the Acropolis used to be a military fortress. Standing in the Acropolis, you can also look at the magnificent panorama of Athens.
