The Parthenon was constructed between 447 and 438 BC and its sculptural decoration was completed in 432 BC. In 1987 it was inscribed as a World Heritage Site (UNESCO, 1987). 

The Temple of Olympian Zeus: The massive temple of Zeus, the most important building in the Altis, standing in its very centre, is the largest temple in the Peloponnese, considered by many to be the perfect example of Doric architecture. 

The National Gardens: This 38 acres public park is located behind the Greek Parliament building.  The Garden is home to ancient ruins, columns, mosaics, and busts of historically important Greeks such as Dionysis. 

The National Archeological Museum of Athens: This is largest archaeological museum in Greece and one of the most important museums in the world devoted to ancient Greek art. It was founded at the end of the 19th century to house and protect antiquities from all over Greece.

Megaron Mousikis (Athens Concert Hall): This cultural center is is just 2 metro stops from NJV Athens Plaza. Famous artists and renowned orchestras have performed in its amazing state-of-the-art halls, while numerous dance and theater performances have attracted thousands of visitors.
