Athens, a city rich in History and tradition got ready to welcome the world.
The birthplace of Socrates and Plato, home of philosophy and cradle of Democracy had the honour and responsibility, for the second time in modern History, to host the Olympic Games.
Next to its timeless monuments like the Parthenon, the Agora and the Panathinaiko Stadium, Athens has built a modern infrastructure of great architectural and technological value. The city transformed its image to a modern, friendly place for Athenians and Visitors alike.
This year’s Olympic Games, as well as being an important milestone in the city’s History, is a lasting legacy for Athens and Greece.
