Hellenic Studies


Athens Courses


The City of Athens

Athens is the largest city in Greece, a classical city full of Classical, Hellenistic, Byzantine, and Modern monuments. Athens is the Center of all the Centers in the world. Athens is the city of the Olympic Idea, the birth place of Democracy, the city of Artists with the Parthenon in Acropolis of all and for all. Athens is beautiful and always smiling. You can find Athens smile everywhere: in an ancient theater, in a modern exhibition hall, at a sports even, down by the sea, at concert, around the table in a small taverna, in a little alleyway, behind the mast of a sailboat or next to the column of an old temple.

 

The National And Kapodistrian University of Athens

The National and Capodistrian University of Athens was founded on May 3rd, 1837 and was housed originally on the north east side of Acropolis. It was the first university not only in the newly established Greek state but also in the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean in general.
