A park in Athens

Last week, I did a quick trip to Athens to run the half-marathon, see the sun and enjoy the warmer temperatures. On Monday, I drove all the way to Piraeus to visit the Stavros Niarchos park. I’d heard so many good things about it, I just had to see it for myself. I wasn’t disappointed. I arrived there a bit before sunset. The views were stunning both towards the city and towards the sea. The building itself will house the national library and the national opera. But if you’re more into the park, then you may want to rent a bike. I’ll be definitely back soon. But for now, enjoy some photos from my visit.

  • Your posts make me miss Europe! It’s been too long!

  • WOW! The photographs are amazing. I really am intrigued, though by the room with all the shelves and no books and the red chairs. It feels…weird to me, but it’s an amazing photo.

    • The building is very new. They’ll move the books in soon. It’s a very strange sight indeed!
