Zappeion Hall

Next to the National Garden, at the centre of Athens, at the intersection of Amalias and Olgas avenues, in the middle of a wooded area, stands the Zappeion Hall dominating the surrounding area. The impressive neo-classical building was constructed in the end of the 19th century according to the plans of Francois Boulanger και Theophil Hansen and with the funding of the national benefactor Evangelos Zappas, in order to be used as an exhibition area.

It has been related to a lot of defining moments of modern Greek history and today it is used mainly for important conferences and ceremonies. For many decades it was the favorite place of Athenians for walking and entertainment around the historical restaurant Aigli, which still operates today.
