Athens forever. Souls created her, souls build her, souls made her, Athens herself is a soul. You may feel her touching you, her breath caressing
your heart with her gentleness and purity, sending out love. Love to you, to the ones around you, to herself and to life.

Athens is alive, she is life itself! Athens lives through you, for you and with you. And just as you did, Athens adorned itself for the holidays, for you,
for Christmas, awaiting for the New Year.
See her shine, a shining star in our very hearts! Dressed in her immaculate veils of snow, Athens invites you to discover her soul! Her soul is your
very soul!

You will get to know her entire being, to her most intimate vibrations, that hurrying regards will overlook. Athens is open for you if you know how to
look at her.
Admire her faces! Gather the memories! Put them together and you will surely find yourself in her! (photos...)

SYNTAGMA SQUARE


The Olympic Stadium is part of the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (OAKA),
situated at Maroussi, a northern suburb of the city, and has 75 000 spectators
capacity. The complex was redesigned by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, in an innovative and creative way. The roof, 16 000 tons, is a glass and steel dome over the Olympic Stadium.

The library was built in 132 A.D by Roman emperor Hadrian and follows the
forum architectural style. It had an entrance with a "propylon" of Corinthian order, a high surrounding wall, an inner courtyard with columns and a decorative pool in the middle.The books were kept in the eastern side of the building. (photos...)






The Olympic Flame started its journey around the world, in 2004, from Olympia and then from Panathinaiko Stadium. (photos...)










Syntagma Square, officially Plateia Syntagmatos (or Constitution Square) is perhaps the "emotional" home of modern Athens. It is dominated by the imposing facade of the Parliament building or Vouli, which was built as the new royal palace following independence, officially opened in 1836. (photos...)
