About Syntagma Metro Station
In the very heart of the city opposite the Parliament, Syntagma Metro Station is both a transport hub and museum.
Dating from the 1990s, when Athens was building its new metro for the 2004 Olympics, the station contains numerous artefacts dating from Classical times – including skeletons – excavated on the site as the station was being built.
A great many items are displayed in the station, the highlight being a glass-walled display behind which a number of these objects can be seen.
