  • A huge structure/monument really impressive. Beautiful. It reminds you a lot of a Greek structure to see!

  • Propylaea - is a large stone gate with massive columns made in Greek style(with the Doric order) in 1862. One of two most powerful and monumental sights in the form of a gate that I saw in Germany and can say not only “looks strong”, but also “looks beautiful”. The second such attraction was the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. These gates look relatively funny against the backdrop of a very large and completely empty round square. Only on its sides are two interesting museums.
  • This propylaea (yeah, that would be a monumental gate) was erected to commemorate the ascension of Otto (son of King Ludwig I of Bavaria) to the Greek throne. Built in the style of Doric Order, there are three gates on the propylaea supported by Ionic columns. The interiors is decorated with reliefs and sculptures celebrating the crowning of King Otto and the Greek War of Independence.
