<b> One can't deny that <font color=fuchsia> Athens </font> is a treasury of world civilization. It is very difficult even to finish driving metro tunnels - every time the underground workers come across something historically valuable, and excavations are immediately started at this place. When I am in Athens I always have a feeling that someone is looking at me, maybe Greek Gods? <font color=green> Zeus? Apollo? Athene?</font>
Do you know that on top of Acropolis there was a bronze statue of Athene of 13 meter high with a spear in her hand? Its point was polished and served as a lighthouse. The statue was ruined by the Turkish and bullets were made of its bronze. Though streets of Athens are not always clean, the city has its unique charm, rich history - and that makes it worth visiting.</b>
