The Acropolis Museum, of the Best in the World The editors included Acropolis Museum on their list taking into consideration the rich archaeological collections hosted inside the Museum and the utmost simplicity of its design, which is strongly connected with the mathematical and conceptual clarity of Ancient Greece. Its location also seems ideal since it stands less than 1,000 feet southeast of the Parthenon - See

 Acropolis, a trap for tourists, CNN 

."Ruggedly modern Athens may be a culture shock to those expecting white marble and togas at every turn, but for many the most jarring experience awaits at the ticket barriers to the Acropolis .This is Athenian culture refined and placed on a pedestal 150 meters high --The country's monuments have endured thousands of years of warfare, stone theft, punishing heat and, in one dramatic incident,an exploding ammo dump -- but they're still here.Be inspired by that, grit your teeth and brave those crowds. It's worth it"

"For years I have argued against
holidays and giving back the Elgin Marbles. I was wrong about both..But a funny thing happens, reader, when you wander round the marvellous Acropolis Museum in Athens and note a signal absence, and an even funnier thing happens when you find yourself dining with Greeks on a rooftop restaurant beneath the Parthenon itself  
Suddenly, you know the Marbles don’t belong to you. 
A mad impulse grips me. I will get them back for you, I want to say!..." See more

Terror, are you safe
dear Traveler?

Top Greek terrorist arrested, two tourists seriously injured on the spot 


Local media reported that police were alerted by a store employee about a suspicious customer who appeared to be carrying a gun. The customer, who turned out to be Maziotis, allegedly opened fire and tried to make a getaway in a taxi, but was stopped a short distance away by police and again opened fire.

Maziotis is now transferred to the Prison hospital under heavy police guard. He was freely living as a Greek nextdoor using the name of the minister of Internal Affairs 

Photographs from the scene of the shooting showed the suspect lying in a pool of blood on a sidewalk, his hands handcuffed behind his back, before he was taken in a police-escorted ambulance to a nearby hospital.

Police said the others wounded were a police officer and two bystanders, both foreign tourists. Witnesses at the scene told the AP that an Australian tourist was lightly wounded in the leg. The other tourist was a German who was also lightly wounded, authorities said.

The two famous Greek bitcoin hackers & the Facebook thanks

  • Brigadier Sfakianakis:“We managed to avert a significant threat of digital safety which caused big problems to millions of internet users around the world".”

Facebook in order to meet the major glitches that caused to computer systems this particular virus, had to continuously change the privacy policy for its users, by introducing specific security mechanisms for all users...

But the two Greek hackers were mostly able to overcome even the Facebook privacy safety updates, by using advanced techniques and software. Go to greek2m full article

A completely different result from what the pre-election polls  had forcasted, came outof  the first round of the Local elections in Greece, shaking, obviously , the means of credibility of the greek media landscape as a whole , and also of the manipulation of the public opinion such "prokat" pre-election polls may finally achieve.
