Panathenaic StadiumΤhe Discus Thrower statue by Dimitriadis

The impressive Panathenaic Stadium is also known as the Kallimarmaro. Founded in the 4th century, it was later restored and expanded by Hadrian Atticus. Following the city's decline during the Christian era and the Franc and Ottoman occupations, the stadium gradually fell into disrepair. Amazingly, the site was excavated and the ancient stadium was fully restored in time to host the first modern Olympic Games in 1896.

Since then, the stadium has been connected to all major sports events in Greece. As a tribute to the original Marathon run, the Marathon International Road Race ends here. The stadium was also the finishing point of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games Marathon.
