The Cultural Center is a short drive from the center of Athens and well worth a visit. The buildings and grounds are lovely, with indoor spaces possessing panoramic views and outside interactive playgrounds.

This place is one of its kind in Greece. The national librarie, the view from the "lighthouse", the lake, the nature, the patks for the kids, the rental bikes. Go there and you will think that you are somewhere else.

We visited this place and we spent a couple of hours in the library. You can walk or have a coffee and enjoy the sunny day here. Excellent location and you can get there by public transportation.

There’s not any entrance fee. Sunday is a good day to visit but it will be a little bit crowded. This is not a problem, anyway. It is nice to have happy people around.
