Athens is the capital of Greece. Once the heart of one of the most powerful civilizations in the Neolithic Age. It was also at the heart of Ancient Greece, a powerful civilization and empire. Athens is still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks and it is dominated by colossal architectural feats of the ancient past, from the Acropolis to the Temple of Olympian Zeus. A hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings like the colonnaded Parthenon temple. The Acropolis Museum, along with the National Archaeological Museum, preserves sculptures, vases, jewelry and more from Ancient Greece.
However, the neighborhoods and backstreets of Athens reveal a delightfully modern and laidback energy, with lively urban restaurants and edgy galleries, set against relics of a bygone era. Those seeking respite from the bustle can take a stroll down its gleaming coastline, with pristine waters and relaxing beach resorts.
Today Athens, with its five million inhabitants, has all characteristics of a modern metropolis but it has kept its very unique ancient atmosphere, an atmosphere that reflects in the Athenians and their way of living. Athens follows the changes of 21st century and it has made its rhythm faster, but it has always made certain that the memories of its valuable past are kept.
First time visitors to Athens are torn between the remnants of the old and those of the new world, between the gods and the shops of Plaka, between the ancient art and the green covered terraces. Returning visitors enjoy all of both words, as do the Athenians themselves. Athens has a lot to offer and even more to enjoy.
