Athens, Greece (02)

I got this card when i went to Athens for New Year's Eve.....I think it was '98/'99.....a small voice inside me says that it might as well have been '97/'98...but the greater percentage goes to the former..


The card here shows the Parthenon in Athens...and ive actually been at this place...yup...i have walked here and had a close encounter with it :D
The Parthenon is a temple of the Greek goddess Athena, built in the 5h century BC on the Athenian Acropolis. It s the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric order. Its decorative sculptures are considered one of the high points of Greek Art.
The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy and is one of the world's greatest cultural monuments.
