The Acropolis

The morning before the start of lobbying, delegates and teachers will visit the Acropolis.

The Acropolis consists of four main temples, the most prominent of which is the Parthenon. They were built in the late 5th century by the great political figure of the time Pericles. The Acropolis has often been invoked as a key symbol of the Greek legacy and of the glories of Classical Greece.

The Acropolis in Athens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been awarded the European Heritage Label. On top of that, it was a runner-up for the new 7 wonders of the world, competing, in architecture and prestige, against the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, the Colosseum in Italy and the Machu Picchu in Peru among others.
