Directions to National Library

The National Library sits as part of the 'neoclassical trilogy' within the city of Athens, an important collection of downtown educational buildings. Built between 1887 and 1902, the library is based on a study of the Danish architect Theophile Hansen. The library holds 4,500 Greek manuscripts, being one of the greatest collections of its kind; there is also a vast collection of archives of the Greek Revolution and chrysobulls. The library consists of three solid sections, with the middle section being the biggest and most impressive, whilst also holding the Reading Room. The Reading Room is surrounded by Ionian-style columns and is covered by a glass ceiling, allowing for a lot of natural light. Book stands within the library are made from a sturdy cast iron, whilst rows of Doric-style columns fill the hallways, designed after the Temple of Hephaestus in the Ancient Agora of Thission. The library is considered to be as important as the content it holds, with unique characteristics and a strong Greek influence.
