crowning city. Among the sights of the city since the summer of 2009 was added the New Museum of Athens to the Acropolis. The building itself is unique, where the exposition is located: at the foot of the sacred cliff of the Acropolis, 280 meters from the Parthenon.


The new Museum is built by the project of Bernard Tschumi and embodies three concepts: light, and architecture, combining everything with the mathematical clarity of ancient Greek buildings. In the course of a complex operation, hundreds of priceless exhibits were brought here from the sacred rock which is the culmination of the exposition.
