Weekly Travel Photo / by Vasiliki Papadopoulos

The beautiful Acropolis area at night in Athens, Greece - 2010. I took this shot from atop Lykavitos - the highest point in the city - and I waited quite some time to get the lighting right.

In ancient times the Acropolis was a scared place of worship dedicated to the goddess Athena - the city's protector. Today, it is an architectural masterpiece, a source of national pride, and the most famous site and symbol of Greece.
