  • The Athenian Trilogy in order is as follows: national library then in the University Center, the third building, the Academy. The library made of pentelic marble is adorned with Doric columns, the building is also characterized by the beautiful Renaissance-style staircase. The columns are similar to those of the Parthenon.

  • National Library of faces, next to the University. Nice spiral staircase and sunset time and often so very nice photos; Because he is used to taking pictures of the wedding. Can't read a book, do not register during the 10-minute beauty is understood from the lobby.

  • We went in the morning @ 9+am and it was closed, but a male librarian staff, upon seeing us outside the door, open its doors for us. He went out of his way, gave us a quick history (it will be relocated very soon) and even showed us around the inside of the library, which is closed to the public! for this, we are very thankful. Its a very ancient but beautiful library, like a scene taken out from harry potter.
  • Α monumental building inspired from the ancient greek architecture of the town..... its collection of books is unique...
  • Unique books can be found there, even from the 14th century!
  • love athens
  • cool and lots of old books, you cant take photo's of inside and you cant walk very far/long but its worth visiting. the building is very nice and is well maintained.
