Named after the famous Greek goddess Athena, who gave the then nameless city an olive tree as a gift and thus became the patron saint, Athens is today considered Greece’s most important metropolis. The Greek capital is not only the most populous and largest city in the country, but also the cultural, historical and economic centre.

Athens has always been an important city in the past and because of its constant settlement since the Neolithic Age it is one of the oldest cities in Europe. The Greek capital also hosted the first Olympic Games of modern times and is home to numerous historical sites and monuments, which is why it was named the first European Capital of Culture in 1985.

Athens’ landmark is the Acropolis, which is located in the centre of the capital on a 156-metre-high limestone plateau. Originally a city fortress of ancient Greece, the Acropolis now offers its visitors a unique view over the Greek capital.
