Haunting Photos Of Athens Eight Years After The Olympics

The potentially negative legacy of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games has been in the news since before the games even started, as commentators doubted the ability of the government to ensure the completion of the requisite stadia and the security of the athletes and spectators. However, many Athenians will point to many long-lasting positive outcomes from their city’s hosting of the games, including a new subway system, a new airport, and a huge boost in tourist visits in the years following the games. Of course, most of the tourists come to Greece to relax on the nation’s beaches or to see the many ruins that dot the countryside. Now, in addition to the Acropolis, visitors to Athens can see the ‘ruins’ of the Olympic Park.
