Greece 2010 - The Acropolis of Athens

by Marzena Jozefczyk September. 19, 2010 7391 views

This was truly magical evening. One morning you're on Amorgos in Small Cyclades, the very same day in the evening you see the sunset over Athens from Acropolis and another morning you're in grey, rainy Warsaw. Madness.

This has been my dream for a long time - to see the Parthenon, the Temple of Athena, the Theatre of Dionysus… Luckily we had a few hours between the ferry and the plane so despite extremly heavy luggage (among clothes, tent, sleeping bags there were olives, feta, local vodka, Greek wine…) we went to see the Acropolis.
The first thing that hit us was a crowd of tourists. After quiet and almost empty Amorgos seeing a line to the Acropolis was shocking. And I can't say that I liked it. I also didn't like the fact, that the hill looks like a huge construction process - scaffoldings, elevators, debris… I know they are trying to avoid total destruction but why exactly when I was there?

Anyway, sitting at the footsteps of Acropolis at sunset, watching the lights over a huge sea of city, waiting for a plane that takes you home - one of a kind.

No, robi wrażenie, nawet z tym żurawiem i rusztowaniami (o, też coś wiem o renowacjach zabytków, akurat w tym czasie, kiedy przyjechałam je zobaczyć ;)). Choć doprawdy nie rozumiem, czemu musieli u stóp Akropolu wybudować do nowoczesne miasto... ;)
