Now used as a public and private Conference and Exhibition Center, the Zappeion is one of the most historic buildings of Athens.
It has been used for numerous events, such as the signing of the documents formalizing Greece˘s accession to the European Union on January 1st, 1981. Surrounding the Zappeion is the National Park and a summer 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.
