Why locals love it

Here took place a massive demonstration of popular rejection of the Greek military junta of 1967–1974. The uprising began on November 14, 1973, ended in bloodshed in the early morning of November 17 after a series of events starting with a tank crashing through the gates of the Polytechnic. A must see!

This is an historical place where the university students rebelled against the military government established by the Coup in 1968

One of the most important historical buildings of Athens but be prepared for an abandoned(by the goverment) view of it...
