The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is not to be missed. The outcome of a large project funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, now houses the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera. A myriad of performances, concerts and events take place at this magnificent multi-functional center which is equipped with excellent facilities. The impressive 210,000 m² Stavros Niarchos Park offers plenty of open space due to clever landscaping.
Considered an architectural treasure- an arts and culture powerhouse- amidst lush greenery, the SNFCC is also the perfect place to wander around, admire the view of Faliro Bay, socialize and relax, or read a good book in the library. The park is a breath of life for the city, with lots of trees, plants, water fountains, paths, and playgrounds making it ideal for everyone; kids, adults and pets. An oasis in Athens for you to enjoy any time of day. A place worth re-visiting many times!
