The Hellenic Olympic Committee was proud to announce that the Panathenaic Stadium, opened its gates for the public after many years. The Panathenaic Stadium was a classical cultural and touristic monument of Greece. Its history is directly connected to the Modern Olympic Games, from their revival in 1896 until the Athens Olympic Games in 2004.
