The Zappeion has been used for numerous events, such as the signing of the documents formalizing Greeceʼs accession to the European Union on January 1st, 1981.
Surrounding the Zappeion is the National Garden and a beautiful restaurant with a summer open-air movie theater. A point of interest may be that the head of Evangelis Zappas is buried just underneath his statue, which is located just outside of the building.
