While walking through the pedestrian street of Adrianou in the heart of Thisio neighborhood, the visitors can see the imposing Ancient Agora. The Ancient Agora was initially built in the 6th century BC until its final construction at the beginning of the 2nd century AC. The Ancient Agora was the core of the ancient city of Athens and thus all the essential sites like the justice and the administration headquarters where located there. It was also the finance, social and cultural center of the city. All the known politicians, authors, philosophers, historians and artists took action from the premises of Ancient Agora during the 4th and 5th century BC. The Ancient Agora can be considered as the perfect manifestation (presentation) of the Greek life and the evolutionary course of democracy since the 6th century BC and on.
