Athens

Greece
4.7 / 22
The history of Athens is the history of Western civilization, its origins and its very essence. Everything was invented here: democracy, theater, the fundamentals of law, philosophy and public speaking. In the ancient heart of Athens - the sacred Acropolis there are still pagan temples dedicated to the mighty Zeus, the wise Athena and the mighty Hephaestus. Stone scenes of ancient theaters still remember the first tragedies of Euripides. The marble stairs of the Panathinaikos Stadium are still ready to receive agile athletes today.
