A monument of unity

UNESCO sees it as the symbol of World Heritage. The world calls it the Athenian Acropolis.

The Acropolis of Athens is a truly amazing monument. It is a unique archaeological site, the centrepiece of classical antiquity, the icon of ancient Greek history, the symbol of democracy and ideals that shaped the world as we know it today. It is a World Heritage Site and a European Heritage Site. It stands in the heart of the oldest city of Europe as a timeless reference witnessing the passage of inhabitants and travellers. It is a reflection of human values, a discovery portal with layers across science, philosophy, architecture, politics, literature, art, music, theatre. It is a projection of human thought, a reminder of our perspective through human nature. It stands for participation and dialogue, freedom of speech, equality, rights, and ethics. It is a symbol of civilisation, the struggle in each person and all of us together to achieve higher. It is a meeting point for future generations to evolve in unity.
