National Theatre of Greece
Lonely Planet review for National Theatre of Greece
Designed by Ernst Ziller, the columned façade of this 1901 building was inspired in part by Hadrian’s Library; the interior was based on Vienna’s People’s Theatre. It served as the Royal Theatre for the king’s guests until 1908. Damaged in the 1999 earthquake, it underwent a major refurbishment and was due to raise the curtain in 2008.
