I entered the cathedral, which was close to my hotel. It is rather small by European standards, but it was decorated nicely inside. There is no entrance fee. It is worth a quick visit.

I've been coming to business to Athens for years and have been waiting to visit this cathedral until the scaffolding all gone. It now has! Fantastic exterior, fully restored.

In a hot afternoon you may want to go to Great Mitropolis. Wonderfull pictures and beautifull carvings are waiting you there with their silence. A place to think and fill your eye and heart with beauty.
