History of the city

The history of Athens begins back in the 15th century B.C. (according to the Neolithic and millennia era). The city was built around acropolis and the cliffs of Pnyka and Philopapou.

The Parthenon, symbol of the Athenian democracy, and also a classical architecture, was build at 448 B.C. On the cliff of acropolis, as an appreciation to the Olympian gods, for removing the Persian threat.

On the cliff of Pnyka, St.Paull (53 B.C.) Introduced the new region of Christianity in front of the members of council of the supreme court. At that time the first Christian community was established by bishop Dionysius Areopagitis.

Athens became the capital of the Hellenic Republic in 1835 (13 years after the beginning of Greek revolution) replacing the city of Nafplio.
