A city as culturally and historically splendid as Athens is bound to possess a university that stands out amongst the rest. The Athens University was designed by the Danish architect Christian Hansen in 1864 and displays an intricate façade that is replete with Greek figures and mythologies. Even though you can’t enter this university as a tourist, yet you can admire its beautiful and rich architecture from outside. On its left is the Athens Academy that was designed by Hansen's brother Theophile. Do not forget to look at the Ionian-style entrance that stands strikingly similar to the eastern entrance to the Erechtheion!
