Greatland Reviewer: Γειά σας.

Αυτή η ιστοσελίδα έχει αρχειοθετηθεί λόγω έλλειψης αντίδρασης, μετά από μυνήματα που στάλθηκαν σχετικά με προβλήματα στην κρύπτη. Αν επιθυμεί ο ιδιοκτήτης, την επαναενεργοποίηση της, μπορεί να έλθει σε επαφή μαζι μου μέσω του profile μου, το συντομότερο δυνατό ,πριν μια νέα κρύπτη τοποθετηθεί στην περιοχή της.

Σημειώστε οτι η επαναενεργοποίηση μιάς κρύπτης απαιτεί την ίδια διαδικασία με τον έλεγχο νέας κρύπτης και θα ισχύουν οι τρέχοντες κανόνες.

Με εκτίμηση,

Geocache Description:


OAKA - Agora

The place.

The 2004 Olympic Games officially came to an end in Athens with a spectacular closing ceremony on Sunday 29 of August 2004. In his closing speech, International Olympic committee president Jacques Rogge told the city: "You have won. "These were unforgettable, dream Games."

    - 201 NOCs (National Olympic Committees)
- 10,625 athletes (4,329 women, 6,296 men)
- 301 events
- 45,000 volunteers
- 21,500 media were partecipated.
But we still want to remember them.

The heart of the Athens Olympic games was the Athens Olympic Sports Complex with its Olympic Stadium (in Greek: Olympiako Stadio Athinas or simply OAKA). The stadium is located in Maroussi, a northern suburb of Athens (9 km from the city centre, 22 km from the airport).
Access by:
Car - Exit the city centre to the north via Kifissias Avenue and just follow the roadsigns to "OAKA". If you come from the Attiki Odos ring road, use exit 11 ("Kifissias - Ol. Stadium").

Bus - Use X14 from Syntagma Square in central Athens. It will take you directly to the Olympic Stadium. Allow at least 30', although this can vary a lot.


Metro - It is a 25' ride from the city centre ("Omonia"). Use line 1 and get off at "Irini". From there it is a 10' walk through the Olympic Complex to the stadium.

The stadium is not the only thing to be marvelled at the Olympic Complex. The Velodrome is equally impressive with its stunning roof (145m long, 106m wide, 45m tall). And, of course, there is the Agora: the arcade, the lakes, the moving Wall of Nations are all magnificent.

Agora :

Inspired by the model of the Ancient Greek meeting place, The Agora ia a vaulted, modular structure of light steel, which runs in an arc along the northenrn edge if the Common Doamin, alongside a dual band of water and trees. Enclosing a pedestrian arcade of some 18.600 m2, the Agora provides a pleasantly shady shelter, with fresh air, for the path and facilities within.

The cache :

The cache is a plastic Tupperware which contains a logbook, a pencil some items for trade, an FTF certificate and a nice pin, award for the first finder.
We wish you to enjoy the area and to have pleasant geocaching in Athens.
