Nothing special about this building. Came here to see the changing of the guards and their march. Quite different. Poor guards. It was such a hot day and they stand without moving for an hour

The Parliament of the country. Here you can also see the changing of the guards every hour. Nearby is the Syntagma station, and National Gardens.

Best to see in on the hour when the guards are changing. During weekend they have a parade uniform. Otherwise the building is close for public.

If you're going to visit Syntagma Square or the aroma of the unknown soldier, parliament is right there and worth a stop. You really only need a few minutes to check it out.

Can't actually go into the parliament building (unless by special invitation!) but if in area or travelling by on bus it is well worth seeing changing of the guard.

The parlament is a beautiful building. Every full hour there is a change of guards. This is a nice happening. So don't miss it ;)

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
