This is where the magic happens? Never waste a good 'crisis' right. Go to the moon with your mandatory covid-19 vaccinations.
The building looks massive and nice. But it was almost completely covered by scaffolding, so I couldn't get any good pictures.
The building is under renovation, but it impresses by its greatness
Romantic baustelle. :) But considering the work they invested into soon it will be in its old glory again.
Disappointed ! This is the 2nd time I visited it in 1,5 years and is still under renovation, nothing to see except the statue (of Athena?)
waited all day to see some politicians. didn't even see a single one. waste of time. sad
