The National Garden

National Garden of Athens

Τhe National Garden, the former Royal Garden, is an oasis of coolness for the summer months in the city of Athens. The National Garden is located right next to the Greek Parliament and close to the Syntagma Square. It was demarcated in 1836 and in 1839 the planters works began and continued until 1854 where the National Garden took its final form. The former Royal Garden was created for the royal couple to house the rides next to the palace. The National Garden has a wide variety of plants, animals and birds as well as ancient ruins, columns and mosaics.

Inside the National Garden you will find the Zappion Building, which was funded for its construction by the Greek fighter of 1821, the businessman, the philanthropist Evangelos Zappas. The Zappion Building was used in the past and continues to be used mainly for exhibitions and rituals. You can enjoy your walk into the charming garden of Zappion which dominates right next to the National Garden and stop to rest for a refreshing drink in the cafeteria Aegli.
