Athens' natural beauties (the answer)!


Well, these two recent pictures come from the main hall of the Botanical Garden in the outskirts of Athens, 9kms west from the centre, in the township of Haidari, close to the Bysantine Dafni Monastery. A free access facility to the public, hosts thousands of plants from all over the globe in special sections that are hosted in the area. The main hall is an arena decorated according to the Austrian gardening style, that's a pleasure in the sences to wander into it, in and out of the alleys. I bet you thought or heard that Athens was more or less a cemented city. See, this bit of heaven on earth, is within reach to anybody who loves nature and enjoys a well preserved park in the capital of Greece. Hope to see you taking a walk or just relax in the premices soon! Posted by Hello
