The Panathenaic Stadium is a classical, cultural and touristic monument of Greece.  Not only, one of the most significant monuments for Greeks, but for the whole world. It is one of our city’s most popular touristic attractions and one of Athens’ landmarks. Its rich history is directly connected to the Modern Olympic Games as from their revival in 1896 until the Athens Olympic Games in 2004. Also, It is the place from where the Olympic flame sets up its journey to the cities of the Olympic Games, both Winter, Summer and Youth: Tokyo 2020, Pyeongchang 2018, Rio 2016, Sochi 2014, London 2012, Vancouver 2010, Beijing 2008, Turin 2006, Athens 2004.

At  Athens 2004 Olympic Games after the lighting ceremony which was held in Olympia on 25 March, the day of the 108th anniversary of the revival of the modern Olympic Games, a seven-day relay began across Greece, the last stage being the celebration at the Panathenaic Stadium. The flame stayed there for 64 days, burning in a special cauldron. It was only on 2 June that it was taken to Athens International Airport to fly to Sydney, host of the Games four years earlier. Cathy Freeman, Australian 400m gold medallist, kicked off the international relay on 4 June in Sydney.
