Government building, set on Syntagma square. Easy to get to via bus/ metro. Worth a visit to see the changing of the guard. Get there early as it can get crowded. The square in front of the building is also used for marches and protests,...More

It is known for the Changing of the guard ceremony. This is also a place for democratic demonstrations against authorities.

Every hour Greek military guards change station in the front of the building dressed in traditional costumes for the "Tomb of The Unknown Soldier". The performance is worth the time to witness. Get there early as it can get very crowed.

The Parliamant Building is pretty much average but the changing of the guards is a must to see. Go there on Sunday at 11:00.

If you are around the Parliament building on a Sunday at midday, you will see the 'Changing of the guard'. What is special about this, is that there are soldiers wearing costumes from all the different regions of Greece

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
