The history of the building of the Greek Parliament is related to the history of the modern Greek state. It was erected as the house of king Otto in 1843 at the hill of Boubounistra to face the Acropolis. An impressive yet simple building was designed by the Bavarian architect Gartner. Nearly a century later, having survived two great fires and various uses, the government of Venizelos decided to place there the Hellenic Parliament and it has been there, except during the dictatorship of Metaxas and the military junta.
