No admission fees for students from the European Union so it was totally worth it. The whole area was spectacular but the terrain was hard to grip. It was either too rocky or too slippery due to marble. Thus people have to be careful when navigating their way around!:)

Athena was daughter of Zeus ... The nam eof Athens was given due to Godess Athena... She was the one who was saving athens from all the nagative enrgies... This is just a small buidling on the Acropolis hill which you can see when you are climbing the hill on th upper right side

Built around 420BC, the temple of Athena nike is located on the acropolis, on the southwest corner of the Propylaea (entry gate). Unlike most of the other temples on the acropolis, including the Parthenon, it isn’t presently undergoing restorative works. You can’t walk inside it but rather view it from afar. It’s included in the 12 euro acropolis pass.

Another amazing piece of Ancient Greek architecture. Nike means victory in Greek and Athena was worshipped in this form as goddess of victory. Go to the Acropolis early to avoid the crowds.

This is the smallest building in the Acropolis. The temple is dedicated to goddess Nike and built around 420 BC. It is in white marble and looks impressive.

There are several impressive structures on top of the Acropolis and visitors should really make an attempt to see them all. Like the other buildings this one is probably about 2,500 years old and the remains stand as a testament to the skill of the stonemasons who built it.
