National library of Greece

The national library of Greece which is located in Athens near the center of the city, was built in 1832 in a neo-classical style by  architect Freiherr Von Hansen.  This has to be one of the nicest buildings in Athens. I expected all the buildings in Athens to be based on neo-classicalism. But that was just not the case. Most of the architecture in Athens is very simple and basic.
