Athens has been the capital of Greece since 1834 and the largest city in the country. It is located in Attica, in eastern Central Greece, and is one of the oldest cities in the world, with its recorded history reaching up to 3,200 BC.
The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, most famously the Parthenon, which is considered an emblematic monument of ancient Western civilization. Roman and Byzantine monuments are still preserved in the city, while in its historical core there are elements that reflect the historical continuity of the city. In Athens there are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis and the medieval Monastery of Daphni. Sights of the modern era, dating from the establishment of Athens as the capital of the independent Greek state in 1834, include the Greek Parliament (19th century) and the Trilogy, a set of three buildings: the National Library, the University and the Academy.
Athens hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896 and 108 years later hosted the 2004 Summer Olympics.
Athens hosts the National Archaeological Museum, which has the largest collection in the world of ancient Greek antiquities, as well as the New Acropolis Museum, whose establishment marked the passage to the future for one of the most important collections of world cultural heritage. In its specially designed spaces it houses the great findings of the Sacred Rock from the Mycenaean era to the Roman and early Christian times. It has received millions of visitors since it opened in 2009. The experience culminates in the room with the sculptures of the Parthenon which is facing the Temple in order to "visually connect" them again with the fronts of the Parthenon. The new museum replaced the old one that operated from the 19th century, in a stone, discreet building next to the Parthenon and presents the valuable exhibits with a modern concept.
Today Athens is the center of economic, industrial, political and cultural life of Greece. It has high standard hotel facilities, modern infrastructure and public transport but also a wide range of options for shopping, dining and entertainment. It is one of the most charming and attractive capitals of Europe, which fascinates every visitor all year round!
