6th International Conference for PeriAnaesthesia Nurses - Athens 7-10 September 2021

Athens - A vibrant city

Athens, the world’s ancient capital where the Olympic Games were born has a history stretching over 3,400 years. It is the capital of Greece with the population of 4.173.542 inhabitants, located in central Greece in the Attica region which offers additional antiquities, not only Athens. Some of these are the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion, or magnificent beaches near historic Marathon.

A global city and the biggest economic centre of South-East Europe, Athens has developed from a powerful city-state that grew as a result of the connection? with the significant city - port of Piraeus. Often referred to as a cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, Athens has given the world a heritage of indescribable value in form of Plato’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum that continue to influence our culture today. 

Each year, more and more travelers choose Athens for their leisure and business travel all year round. There are several reasons; Athens offers a variety of things to see and do, and most of the times, under favourable weather conditions. Athens is considered one of Europe’s safest capitals; its transportation network is user-friendly. Athens is an ideal congress destination, combining state-of-the-art infrastructure, excellent conference facilities and easy access from all over the world with world-class cultural attractions, modern amenities, diverse entertainment and natural beauty. 

Ancient monuments that can be found around the city remind its visitors of the richness of the Greek culture. Acropolis, built in the honour of goddess Athena, dominates Athens, and can be seen from almost any part of the city. With Parthenon on the top it mesmerizes visitors by the brightness of the Pantelic marble during the day, and rises radiantly illuminated above the city during the night.

Although Acropolis was, and still remains, the major site of Athens, the actual heart of the city in the ancient times was the Agora. Lively and crowded meeting point of administrative, social, commercial and political life where Socrates used to share his philosophy. A can’t-miss site that has to be mentioned is a colossal Temple of Zeus which for the lack of funds took over 700 years to build. Started by Peisistratos, building had to be abandoned and was later finished by Hadrian. Originally having 104 Corinthian columns, of which only 15 remain, the site still amazes visitors with its impressiveness.

Moreover, Athens preserve also Roman, Byzantine or Ottoman monuments that all keep attracting still growing number of visitors. The city is a home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Acropolis and the medieval Daphni Monastery.

Due to favourable weather conditions throughout the entire year, Athens provides a lively and vibrant holiday or business destination any time you visit. It is surrounded by breath taking seas and mountains and filled with welcoming and hospitable local citizens who are ready to accommodate every guest so that they feel just like at home.
