Travel Pro Architecture #58: Athens Greece! Part Two (10 photos)

in #travellast year

Hey there my friends and followers! In this Travel Pro Series we focus on significant structures, buildings, and general architecture of a given area. Everywhere in the world is different from the way people look and speak, to the food they eat, to customs, traditions, all the way down to the buildings they live in. My favorite thing to do is simply walk around and take in the environment of each place I visit. So this series gives you an idea of what that may be like and how influential these structures really are.

Athens Greece is a city of great history, it's where Socrates and Aristotle are from. The ancient structures dating back before 400 BC are wildly impressive and are one of the main attractions to visit while in Athens. As you get closer to the center of downtown there are ancient ruins speckled all over the place. It really makes going for a walk in this part of the city special.

The northern half of the city is not in the best condition and there was a surprisingly high amount of graffiti and dilapidation. However the architecture all over the city seemed to be a mix of old and new with a clear European element. Now come along lets have a closer look at the buildings and structures of Athens Greece!

With over 16 years of travel experience I answer travel and international lifestyle questions. Leave a question in the comments and I may make a Steemit post just for you!

Looking at your photo of those buildings Athens looks similar to Thessaloniki where I was last year. You're right Greece= great history I usually say it is the cradle of European culture.

Indeed Phil. Socretes, Plato....all these guys came out of there. Thessaloniki, I was thinking of going there, but I cut a straight line to Sofia Bulgaria instead. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
