From the Parthenon on the Acropolis to the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Athens features a wide variety of famous cultural and historical sites. However, beyond the iconic architecture associated with the Ancient Greeks, Athens offers a number of lesser-known tourist attractions, such as the National Gardens.
The National Gardens, or Vassilikos Kipos, gives visitors an opportunity to enrich their experience of the city and take a break from the crowds. Covering 15.5 hectares (roughly 38 acres) behind the Presidential Residence and the Greek Parliament building, the gardens include flowers, statues, and a duck pond. Former Queen Amalia helped design the landscape in 1839; the National Gardens opened to the public in 1923.
