    For those that can't make it all the way to Greece this summer, this is the perfect substitute.

    This is a great park where you can play with friends, meet new people, or just walk around.

    The centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's Parthenon is an exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens.

    Go upstairs and take a picture in front of the Athena statue!

    The Parthenon was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition and is located in Centennial Park. It's definitely worth making the trip to see if passing through or visiting Nashville.

    It's Greek to me

    Oddly enough, Athens has an exact replica of Hank Williams' birthplace.

    After checking in at the Parthenon on 4/16 don't check in anywhere else until 6 or 6:30 or you won't be counted for the swarm.

    For those wondering what the hell a replica of the Greek Parthenon is doing in Tennessee, visit this. Your questions won't be answered but visit it anyway.

    Make sure you take a look around the park too, there are some interesting sights like trees with twisted trunks, and plenty of swings where you and your loved ones can sit down and relax!

    Bring a beach chair and laptop for a wonderfully peaceful place to work amongst the columns. The north side gets less sun making it nice even in the mid-80s. Move to the south side in cooler weather.

    Great place to have a picnic during nice weather by the pond!

    One of the coolest historical reproductions around. This replica has historical significance of its own, too! :-)

    The Parthenon itself is an amazing structure, but the Athena Parthenos inside is absolutely breathtaking!

    This is a great place to share, learn, take photos, and relax. Next best thing to being in Greece. The staff are very nice, it's the exact replica as to the Parthenon in Athens.

    This is a great deal! As of writing this, the admission was $6. To do the whole thing doesn't take that long, and it was very impressive to see.

    If you can't get to Greece, Nashville's Parthenon is definitely the way to go!

    I was super excited to find out this place existed. But I was bummed to find out it was closed when we got there and couldn't go inside. But the outside was nice. Took lots of pics.
