Athens is the capital of modern Greece, and a city with a long military tradition. It is also home to the nation’s fine military museum. The Athens War Museum was established in 1975, and chronicles history of Greece from antiquity through its wars of independence to the modern day. The collections include uniforms, weapons and equipment from all the wars in which Greece was involved, including the two Balkan conflicts, the First World War, World War II and of course the Greek Civil War. In additional the Athens War Museum offers a room devoted to other militaries from around the world, with a fantastic collection of Medieval Japanese artifacts.
