National Garden / Zappion Athens

One of the most visited places of Athens by both tourists and Athenians is the National Garden. Situated close to the Parliament, the Garden was created in 1839 on the direction of queen Amalia, wife of king Otto, in order to provide the newly constructed palace (now the Parliament building) with an exotic garden filled with plants and trees from all over the world.

The garden is the largest wooded area in the Athens centre and also encompasses a duck pond, a library for children and a playground, as well as a small botanical museum and several coffee shops.

Its entrance is on Amalias Avenue and is open from dawn until sunset.
