Olympia is a well-known city in Greece , which used to be the site of the ancient Olympic Games.

The Olympic Games and Olympia

The first Olympic Games took place there in 776 BC. During the 19th and 20th centuries the remains of the original city and stadium were uncovered. In 1989 the Olympia archaeological park was entered on the UNESCO list. Many sights, not only connected with the glorious sports history, have been preserved in the archaeological park. The most well-know are the Temple of Zeus, the Temple of Hera, the studio of Pheidias, the Echo Hall with columns and the stadium. It is in the Temple of Hera that the Olympic torch is lit. The modern Olympic Games were established by Piere de Coubertin. His memorial is situated in Olympia too.

In the proximity of the archaeological park there is a museum, where local interesting discoveries and statues have been placed. A new Olympia city with many hotels and souvenir shops has been built close to the park, too.
