  • A gorgeous place in Athens. Great to relax, take a stroll in the park, grab a coffee or do any of the many activities that you are able to do there! The park is really good and the there are many places to grab a coffee or something go eat. The view from the roof is astonishing too. Probably I am gonna visit soon to relax and read a book while enjoying the view! Totally recommended for an escape from the city!
  • Very nice complex with unique and thoughtful design. The library is wonderful and larger than expected. Many good food choices and exceptional gardens and exercise opportunities. Great place to bring kids. Make sure to visit the "light house" which is more a large observation deck. Check out the long distance binoculars for a great view of the Parthenon.
  • More than a cultural center! Beautiful and relaxing for all tastes! Green and blossoms everywhere you look make it perfect for a walk around the gardens. The Olive trees within their simplicity, reminiscent of antiquity, add peace, elegance and grandeur to the big picture! Great views of the sea and the surrounding area from the highest point of the building. Ideal kids playground with lots of activities. Fitness lovers may also visit for jogging, bicycle, rollers or exercise their minds in the library!
  • A beautiful installment pretty recently built. Perfect for a walk with your friends or your family during the day and the night. Huge park with many pathways and hidden Easter eggs hidden around. Amazing view from many places. An artificial lake with trees around and a small restaurant at the end of it. The building is very modern, again with great views and disabled accessible. Outside many events are held that are worth attending to. All in all great experience, i recommend.
  • There is something for everyone here. I have a great respect for this foundation and what they are accomplishing. The building is very well designed. It houses the National Opera House, public library, charming gift shop with tasteful Greek designer items (would love to see more). There are often events going on all year round for all ages so check their website. Also, their staff are super organized and professional. Love it.
