The University of Athens: The historic building

IMG_0601 [The University of Athens]


  The pictured historic building of the University of Athens is situated in the heart of the city. It was designed in the 19th-century by the Danish architect Hans Christian Hansen (1803-1883) as part of the so-called “Athenian trilogy” of neoclassical buildings consisting of the University of Athens in the middle, the National Library on the left and The Academy on the right. Once, it housed all University services but today its use is restricted to housing the Rectorate, the Senate and the Great Hall of Ceremonies.

    1. Καλησπέρα pan koub. Σ’ ευχαριστώ.

      Πανοραμική με το κινητό σε jpeg, το οποίο, όπως ξέρεις, δεν ανέχεται εύκολα διορθωτικές επεμβάσεις σε περιπτώσεις που τις χρειάζονται όπως στη συγκεκριμένη περίπτωση ο προβληματικός ουρανός. Παρόλα αυτά, no complaints!
