  • Old building but still looks great!
  • Old and historic, proud home of Panathinaikos
  • Meh
  • I am just gonna put 2 stars because from the outside it looks awful. Once it will be renewed as presented by the directors of the team, I will give 5 stars.
  • A great old Stadium with great Fans!
