  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  

    Ringed by banks, deluxe hotels, generic fastfood eateries and travel agencies, Syntagma (Constitution) Square is the central reference point for the most visitors to Athens. It also makes a convenient rendezvous spot for Athenians working in the city centre. Orange trees, cypresses and palms somehow survive the fumes that are emitted by constant traffic swinging into Syntagma from eight major thoroughfares.

  • History You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  
    Syntagma has always been an Athens centre of action: Aristotle’s Lyceum was located just to the south; at different stages of World War II, the Germans and British had their headquarters on Syntagma; an unsuccessful assassination attempt on Winston Churchill occurred here in 1944 (dynamite had been planted in the sewers under his hotel).
  • What can you see and do? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  

    Across the upper, east side of the square is Greece’s Parliament (Vouli), which was the royal palace until 1935. Sentries (evzones) in traditional uniform quard a memorial to the nation’s unknown soldier which stands in the forecourt. You can watch a formal changing of this Republican Guard qt 10.45am on Sunday morning. Be advised, though, it’s best to arrive early for a view.

    To the south lies the Zappion, a national exhibition hall and, in summer, an open-air stage.

  • To Omonia Square You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: chinalove  

    Two broad avenues link Syntagma to Athens’ other main square, Omonia (a 15-minute walk away). Along Stadiou, a principal shopping street, the National Historical Museum is in the old Parliament building on Platia Kolokotroni. Its displays from the Greek War of independence include the helmet and sword allegedly used by the poet Lord Byron.

    Two blocks on is Klafthmonos (Sobbing Square), so-named because King Otto’s subjects came here to register complaints. Just below the square is the lovely 12th-century Byzantine church of Agii Theodori (Saint Theodore), which has tiny stairs wrapped around miniature pulpit.
