Athens

Athens

athens acropolis NS-CRAthens has a unique place in human history. As the people who pioneer the arts of history, philosophy and theatre, who attempt the first radical version of democracy, and who achieve a degree of perfection in architecture, sculpture and pottery, the Athenians have rightly acquired an almost legendary status. 

They surface relatively late in the story of Greece. No character from Athens plays a significant role in Homer. It is not until the late 7th century that Athens is firmly within the realm of recorded history.

Athens-SightseeingAthens, a bustling city of 4-million-plus residents and the oldest inhabited city in the world, is full of contrasts and pleasant surprises. The hosting the Olympic Games in 2004 led to major reconstruction projects in Athens. The city has recently undergone a multi-million-euro "face lift" with the expansion of parks and pedestrian zones, the restoration of historic neoclassic buildings and the construction of walkways that link its main archaeological sites.

A Brief Reference to the History of Athens

Athens was named according to the Greek mythology from competition that the goddess Athena had with Poseidon  about who will become protector of the city. The myth says that Poseidon gave a spring with sea water whilst Athena offered an olive tree as she touched the ground of the sacred rock of the Acropolis. The people of Athens choose Athena as their protector and so the city was named after the goddess of wisdom. The myth is symbolic but the two Gods symbolising the strength of Athens as a city of wisdom and as a sea power. The first settlement of Athens 3000 BC was situated on the rock of Acropolis.
