Athens is the capital and the largest city of Greece. It dominates the Attica region and is one of the world’s oldest cities. Athens is a global city and indeed one of the most significant economic centres in southeastern Europe. It has a significant financial sector, and its port of Piraeus is both the largest passenger port in Europe and the second largest in the world.
By the late 1970s, the pollution of Athens had become so destructive that according to the then Greek Minister of Culture, Constantine Trypanis, “…the carved details on the five the caryatids of the Erechtheum had seriously degenerated, while the face of the horseman on the Parthenon’s west side all but obliterated.” A series of measures taken by the authorities of the city throughout the 1990s resulted in the improvement of air quality; the appearance of smog has become less frequent. The city has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate.
