Photographer's Note

Today I managed to take a morning stroll downtown Athens.
I had the chance to visit this magnificent and iconic building in the heart of Athens.
This is the Zappeion Megaron, well know to all locals and tourists.
Hope you like the view and the whole place in general.



The Zappeion or Záppeion Mégaro, is a building in the National Gardens of Athens in the heart of Athens, Greece. It is generally used for meetings and ceremonies, both official and private.

The Zappeion Megaron is a part of national heritage of Greek civilization, designed by T. Hansen (1874-1888).
It took its name from Evangelis Zappas, a Greek patriot and benefactor from North Epirus who envisaged the rebirth of the spirit of ancient Greece and devoted his life to the revival of the Olympic Games and the promotion of the Αrts.
The Zappeion Megaron has been an active part of Greece's history and that of Hellenism, for the last 130 years. Cultural events of great importance take place within the precinct. The Olympia(d) and Bequests Committee, not only highlights the historical milestones related to the Olympic activities, but also to those related to the cultural identity of Greece in general.
