Academy of Athens  

Academy of Athens - Attica (Greece)

On Panepistimiou street, three notable buildings where built around the same period. These are the Academy, the University and the National Library. These were built in the period after the Greek independence, mid-19th century. Architects of these "works of art" the Danish Hansen brothers, were living in Athens at that time. The building of the Academy of Athens was funded in the period 1859-1866 by Simon Sina. In 1877 the organization was put together, but was not officially founded until 1926. The aim of the Academy is to promote sciences and arts. At the central staircase at the entrance on the left side you will see the image of Platon (2m. 40) and on the right side the image of Socrates (2 to 40). Notable are two high pillars with goddess Athena (3 meters 71 high) and god Apollo (3 meters 71 high).
