The Acropolis in Athens is one of the world’s most important architectural, historic and cultural treasures. 
Η Ακρόπολη στην Αθήνα είναι ένας από τους πιο σημαντικούς αρχιτεκτονικούς, ιστορικούς και πολιτιστικούς θησαυρούς του κόσμου.
Millions of tourists from all over the world travel to Athens to visit the glorious place every year. (Photo: Phivos Kyriakides).

Ο Παρθενώνας είναι ένα μαγικό ανθρώπινο κατασκεύασμα. Η αρχιτεκτονική και τα μαθηματικά που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν θεωρούνται πάρα πολύ πρωτοποριακά για εκείνη την εποχή και όχι μόνο.
