A Greek city among the top 17 places to travel in 2017
Conde Nast Traveler published the list with the best places to travel in 2017. 17 unique destinations around the globe from Portugal and the Azores to Canada, these 17 editor-endorsed destinations are the best places to travel this year and a Greek city is featured in the top 5.
Conde Nast captioned the photo of Athens: “Athens has always been known as an old city, that’s nothing new. Instead, what is new is its burgeoning status as a modern arts capital: Look no further than the recently opened, Renzo Piano-designed, $623 million Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center, which houses the National Opera and the National Library of Greece, sits on the biggest park in Athens, and is the first public building in Greece to achieve a Platinum LEED certification. The National Museum of Contemporary Art also partially reopened in a renovated brewery after a 12-year closure, and in April, the city will co-host documenta, the exhibition of modern and contemporary art that takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany (it’s the first time the hosting duties will be split between two cities). Though it’s long played second fiddle to other European capitals like Rome, and merely seen as a stopover point on the way to, say, Corfu, Athens has once again arrived”.
