From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The main article for this category is Athens.

Athens (Greek: Αθήνα, Athína; Ancient Greek: Αθήναι, Athinai) is the capital of Greece, and also the capital of the Attica periphery. In addition to being a modern European city, Athens is also famous for being a powerful city-state and a very important center of learning in ancient times. It is named after its patron goddess, Athena.

While the city proper has around 750,000 inhabitants, its metropolitan area covers almost the entire plain of Attica, with a population over 3 million. Drawing on its distinguished history, Athens is a prominent tourist destination. It is also well known for its association with the Olympic Games, hosting both the first modern Olympics in 1896 and more recently the 2004 Summer Olympics.
