Athina – Part 3

Even though the height of the Classical Greek period was some 2500 years ago, it seems like the world, and Greece, is forever in love with it. One particular aspect is its elegant architecture. Walking down central Athens, I came upon the old buildings of University of Athens.

If you think it’s all a bit too well-kempt compared to the buildings on the Acropolis, it’s because it was built in the 19th Century, designed by a Dane!

Still, it is all pretty well-done. It was once the main university building, but is now only used for ceremonial purposes.
