  • A building monument that mimics the old buildings with their columns, is in an area of Athens that not many visit, worth a go.

  • 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..
