- Called the "three temples of learning", the National Library, the University of Athens and the Academy of Athens are outstanding examples of 19th century architecture - all in a row. All three buildings were constructed by Danish architects Theophil Freiherr von Hansen and Christian Hansen and each is set out on a city block. Unfortunately no one but officials and researchers are granted admission.
Closest metro is the Panepistimio station. Other points of interest nearby are the Numismatic museum, the museum of the City of Athens (Vouros-Eftaxias) and the National History Museum (Old Parliament).
