  • Good looking building. I was allowed to go inside and take pictures. The staff was helpful and spend a few minutes chatting with them.  more »
  • Here you can see what were probably those buildings, for the sake of the ruins where tourists come here. Set in very good condition and decorated in the style of classical Greek architecture. You can see the stele with Athena and Apollo, bas-reliefs, sculptures of Sphinxes, Griffins and owls. Here are plamjatniki Plato and Socrates.

  • What a beauty, and a wonderful example of Neo Classical design. Go inside and look into the main meeting room. Outside columns has statues of Athena and Apollo. At the bottom of the steps are Plato on the Left and Socrates on the right. Plato built his first school on a plot of land called The Academy, which is why all higher learning schools are called The Academy all over the world.
  • Cool architecture after the fashion of the Parthenon, but all in one piece (of course).
  • Amazing neoclassical architecture. An Athens must-see.
  • Amazing building inspired by the ancient greek architecture.
  • Nice building, I have only saw the outside..
