The "Kostis Palamas" Building

The neoclassical building "Kostis Palamas" was built in 1857 and initially served as a private school. In 1870 the building was purchased by the University of Athens, to house therein various laboratories, classrooms and later University Museums. Since 2005, it is used for hosting art exhibitions, lectures, roundtables, book presentations, workshops and symposia.


There are many accommodation options in Athens. School participants are expected to make their own reservations. We would like to point out that, the easiest, and fastest way to reach the School Venue is by Metro. Therefore, it may be helpful if your hotel is situated near the metro stations (such as Syntagma, or Monastiraki, in the city center).
