OPEN HOUSE ATHENS, 1&2 APRIL 2017 : EVERY BUILDING HAS A STORY TO TELL

Open House Athens is part of the Open House Worldwide network. The idea began at London in 1992, and today it is a non-profit architectural institution through which cities are transformed into museums, with their buildings being the exhibits. Counting 4 years now, this event introduces you to approximately 100 buildings of great architectural interest for free. Through guided tours from the numerous participants working for the event, you get to know interesting information and explore the places you choose to visit.
