Most of us think of death, mourning, and pain when hearing the word "cemetery" - however, the atmosphere in the First Cemetery of Athens is not quite like that.
Often characterized as an open-air museum, this place houses a plethora of unique sculptures, monuments, and tombs.
Many renowned individuals have been buried here, including artists, politicians, and philanthropists, such as Melina Mercouri, Andreas Papandreou, and Georgios Averof.
It is also one of the largest cemeteries in Europe. Thanks to it, Greece became a member of the European Cemeteries Route in 2011.
