The next stop after Lykavittos Hill was the National Archaeological Museum. We took a little subway to get there.

A transfer station on the way. In Tokyo, there is a place where you go above ground for a moment though it is a subway, isn’t it?

The museum is located on the north side of Athens, and there are many tourists, but it was a little bit scary because it was located in an unsafe area and it was a little bit walk from the metro station.

There are many sculptures related to Greek mythology, such as the statue of Poseidon and the statue of Aphrodite.

All of them are of high quality, powerful and beautiful. It is just like Greece where ancient civilization flourished.

Perhaps it was because I saw them there, but they were more impressive than anything I’ve seen in the British Museum or the Louvre.
