Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre: (not) just another Day by the Seaside

Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre: (not) just another Day by the Seaside

Got a sunny day in Athens, but you are already fed-up with “ancient” stuff? We got you covered with a modern, state-of-the-art architectural jewel built on top of a park.  Situated right next to the city’s waterfront, the brand-new, spectacular Stavros Niarchos Cultural Centre is not to be missed by anybody who has more than a few days to spend in Athens; a space ideal for all outdoor activities like walking, jogging, enjoying a picnic, relaxing among plants and trees, it also regularly hosts concerts, exhibitions and other events – usually with free admission – in the vast gardens which surround the main building.
