Zappeion

This magnificent building was erected in 1896 in order to become the Olympic Village of the first Modern Olympic Games. From then on, it serves as a conference and exhibitions hall. The latest large excibition which took place there was the "Titanic" with artifacts and photos from the infamous ship.

Welcome to the the DP family! I love Athens!!! It's been a long, long time since I was there...you probably weren't even born yet! LOL!!

I am sure many things have changed since 1973 and I will enjoy seeing Athens as it is today!
