Recent photos from Athens
What a colorful mosaic… That’s what I said when I saw the fantastic panorama view of the Mount Lycabettus in Athens. This photo was taken from the famous Akropolis and you can see the hill, surrounded by bright colored buildings, typical for the capital of Greece. Personally, I was most amazed by the fact, that there’s a hill in the center of a capital city. Mount Lycabettus is a really unique formation and if you still haven’t visited the charming capital of Greece, I recommend you to do it soon.
Same as the colossal metropolis New York, Athens also is a city that never sleeps. Looking at this colorful photo, I remember how fascinated I was, watching a city so ancient, living to the fullest every time of the day and night! Enjoying the bright coloring of that image, I hope to go back to the charming capital of Greece, to the vivid Monastiraki Square, full of life, laughter and delicious food.
Every time I look at this colorful image of Monastiraki area in Athens, it reminds me how charming the old town of the capital of Greece is, especially at twilight. Moreover, you can notice also the Akropolis and other important buildings there. As you can see on the picture, this neighborhood is crowded with people. One of the reasons is that it’s a major shopping district.
Among the major landmarks of the city is the Metropolitan Cathedral Of Athens. It’s used for ceremonies of national significance, but also for weddings and funerals of rich people. Completed in 1862, it was necessary to work 20 years and use the marble from 72 demolished churches to build the Cathedral’s walls.
With its 277 meters, Lycabettus Hill is the tallest hill in the capital of Greece. That’s why, when you go at the top, you can see some of the Athens’ most popular monuments – the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium. When you climb the Lycabettus Hill, you will see the charming St. George’s church, built in the 19th century. Best thing is that you could continue enjoying the view on your way down.
