Athens and the Acropolis

In 1834, Athens became the capital of modern Greece. During this period arose the polis (city) around the Acropolis hill.
In two centuries the city has developed into an attractive modern city with incomparable charm.
Today’s metropolis of Athens with its 3.5 million inhabitants (including suburbs and Piraeus) is the political, social, cultural and economic center of Greece.
The Acropolis is its most famous symbol and a tourist attraction. It was the citadel and the religious center of the ancient city. Its monuments are imposing and unique in beauty and the Parthenon is a synonym for architectural perfection.
