Athens Photos - Travel & Fine Art
That breath-taking view of the capital and largest city of Greece could touch any heart, I think. At least that happened with me and with all the people around me, who were enchanted by the spectacular panorama of Athens at sunset. This photo was taken from Lycabettus hill while I was waiting for sun to set and shoot photos of Parthenon hill.
The Acropolis view was the first one which greet us in Athens. This hill with remains of Parthenon temple is visible from almost every point of the city. The Acropolis of Athens is situated on a rock that rises around 150m above sea level. If you’ve been to the capital of Greece, you know how stunning it is to see it from anywhere, day and night.
Do you know another city in which the metro is going right through an archeological park? Me neither. That’s why I tried to capture the amazing mixture of a contemporary technology, operating in a place with ancient history. You could see there artwork, exhibitions, and archeological artefacts, discovered during construction works.
