The new stadium was made for handball for the Athens 2004 Olympics. It is situated in a beutiful location right on the beach and has great exterior architecture. I personally love this stadium and every aspect of it. I do not think they could have made a nicer looking stadium to go along with the surroundings.

What do you think?

The Sports Pavilion is truly beautiful and very elegant. It has a capacity of 8,100 spectators and it was the venue of Taekwondo and Handball for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. Unfortunately i do not know who the architekt is... I especially like the facades of wood...

This one is great!!!
What'll happen with all the arenas in Athens after the Olympics. Are they in use, or just stand there empty?

pretty nice and retro exterior, which is pretty hot right now. what do they use these venues for after the olympics that they built for marginal sports? Looks like it could be converted into a nice concert venue.

7/10

Nothing special, not large, but at least it doesn't have a racing track. Good stadium

This stadium will never happen, AEK won't get a stadium there. Residents are complaining etc....

Plus it's not even an official proposal, but only one done since it is close to "election" time. Plus the current president said he wants a bigger and better stadium, and already said this land (Nea Philadelphia) cannot be built on.

Anyway, here are a few more pics:

Request: Athens Olympic Stadium

I would like to set in my screen an Athens Olympic Stadium photo as wallpaper but I haven't found none with the appropiate size. Could someone post some 1024 x 768 pixel photos of the ceremonies?

Thanks!
