Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens – the heart of the city | Athens, Greece

A beautiful image of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens.

This picture reminds me about the wonderful time I spent in the capital of Greece. My general feeling is that Athens is a very vibrant, very busy city and I realized that it was a good thing that I’ve visited in the winter, when there are not so many tourists.

 The Cathedral of the Annunciation 

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.

Sightseeing in Athens – an exciting journey in antiquity

As you probably already know, visiting all the interesting places in the capital of Greece requires a lot of time – so many fascinating things from ancient times to nowadays to see!

My memories from there are very pleasant and I hope that yours are the same. I would definitely recommend sightseeing in Athens for those who like the Antiquity but haven’t visited the capital of Greece yet.
