Athens - first impression, Greece
Reviews > Europe > Greece > Athens > Athens - first impression
I've never seen such a different city before that time. On the one hand there was everything historical and full of antique things, on the other hand the place was very dirty and spoiled sometimes, mainly if you went away from the tourist places.
Today it's not so bad any more, like friends told me, but it's still not in perfect condition in the city. Besides that, there are amazing things you must visit, and for which you probably came to the city.
