Places to visit in Athens. Languages: en

The Greek Academy of Sciences is housed in a building located in Athens, Greece. The Academy of Athens is Greece's national academy and the country's highest research establishment. Established in 1926, it operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, and its principal building is a neoclassical building located in central Athens, designed as part of a trilogy of buildings by Danish architect Theophil Hansen, along with the University and the National Library. The main building of the Academy was built between 1859 and 1885. It was initially used as housing for the Numismatic Museum, the Byzantine Museum, and the State Archives before being handed over to the Academy of Athens in 1926. The Academy of Athens has three orders: Natural Sciences, Letters and Arts, and Moral and Political Sciences. It has 14 research centres and five research offices, as well as the "Ioannis Sykoutris" library. The Academy of Athens was recently selected as the central motif for a high-value euro collectors' coin and is a member of several international organisations, including the International Association of Academies and the European Academies Science Advisory Council.

Shopping in Athens of Feb 13, 2023

As a seasoned shopper, I recommend starting at Omonia Square and going down the bustling Eleutheriou Benizelou Avenue. Stop by the Attica department store to check out the latest designer trends before exploring the luxury shops near Syntagma Square. Next, continue your journey along Ermou Street, where you'll find stores like Bershka, Zara, Mango, H&M, and local brands. Don't forget to pop into United Colors of Benetton for vibrant, colourful pieces. When hunger strikes, take a break at the popular taverna Bairaktaris before learning about the VAT refund policy. Finally, head to the Psiri neighbourhood to browse the food and flea markets for unique finds. Happy shopping!
