The Greek Parliament has been housed in the Old Royal Palace from 1929 until now. It is a neoclassical building, designed by Friedrich von Gärtner, the architect of Bavaria’s Royal Court, and located at the Syntagma square in Athens. Its construction started in 1836 and was completed in 1847. With respect to the heritage of ancient Athens and establishing the principles of the renaissance in urban classicism, Gärtner designed a plain, functional and solid building. The Hellenic Parliament is a timeless symbol and part of the collective memory. As time passed, the building underwent changes, adjustments, and was modernised.
