  • the National and Capodistrian University of Athens is the last part of the trilogy (National University, national library, Academy of Athens) and was founded in 1837, becoming the first University of Greece and the Balkans. This is a group of buildings that form a double 't ' with two historic courtyards with exterior statues and characterized by strict lines. Today, it serves as the seat of the University, housing the Rector's Office, the Senate and the Great Hall.

  • What I wouldn't give to be able to study there. Come in and be welcomed by history, by the charm and beauty of Athens. There are no words to describe it.
