Exterior Of The Zappeion Exhibiton Hall | Athens, Greece

,

I took this bright exterior image of one of Athens’ most notable buildings in a warm, sunny day. To be honest, I actually like more the interior of the Zappeion Hall, especially the atrium, which stunned me with its perfect geometry.

 

Zappeion – The dream Of Evangelos Zappas

Evangelos Zappas, the generous rich man who left his fortune for the construction of a modern Olympic building, appointed the Danish architect Theophil Hansen for this noble task. Sadly, Zappas could not live long enough to see his dream come true in 1888.

 

Some of the major events, hosted in the Zappeion Hall

In 1938, the first national radio of Greece – Athens Radio Station, began broadcasting from the Zappeion.

In 1978, the 82nd session of the Olympic Committee’s International Exhibition took place.

In 2016, the Zappeion hosted a press conference regarding the visit of the former US President Barak Obama.

 

The list of cultural and sports events, of political ceremonies and commercial shows, housed in the Zappeion Exhibition Hall in Athens is really long. Even if that’s not enough to attract your interest to this magnificent building, I recommend you to see it, while sightseeing in the city, just for its elegant, neoclassical architecture. And who knows, you may even see a celebrity there!

Get it On Your Wall

It took us with Nico few minutes to book the flight to San Cristobal de la Laguna after we googled „the sunniest places in Europe in November “. Fact, there was not much choice – the rainy mood seems to spread over Europe in this time. However, what we found about Canary Islands surprised us enormously. The all Canary Islands seemed to offer sunny weather, palms and turquois view on Ocean. And Tenerife… Tenerife seemed to us to be different to all…

Do you know that in one small island you can have four (it’s not hyperbole) seasons of the year? With drive, over 20 km further north or south you can either experience summer or winter. This vision was too crazy for us to say it’s truth – don’t trust blog articles until you experience it by yourself. The prices of accommodation and renting car after first research appeared to us to be very friendly, so we didn’t hesitate too long.
