D Akropolis z Athen (altgriech. ἡ Ἀκρόπολις τῶν Ἀθηνῶν, hē Akrópolis tôn Atʰēnôn; noigriech. η Ακρόπολη της Αθήνας, i Akrópoli tis Aθínas; das häisst „d Oberstadt vo Athen“) isch woorschinlig die bekanntisti Stadtfestig us em antike Griecheland. Es stöön druf bemerkenswärti Geböid, wo uf dr ganze Wält bekannt si, und dorum säit mä dr Athener Akropolis vilmol nume „d Akropolis“.

Im fümfte Joorhundert vor dr Zitewändi het dr Perikles dr eltist Däil vo dr Stadt Athen, wo vo de Perser zerstöört worde isch, under dr Läitig vom berüemte Bildhauer Phidias vo de Archidekte Iktinos, Kallikrates und Mnesikles nöi lo ufbaue. Uf eme flachen Felse, wo 156 Meter hooch isch, stöön d Propyleä, s Erechtheion, dr Niketämpel und dr Parthenon-Tämpel, wo zwüsche 467 v. d. Z. und 406 v. d. Z. baut worde si. Im Parthenon sig emol e Statue vo dr Göttin Athene gstande, won e Kopii von ere hüte im Akropolis-Museum z Athen stoot.

D Akropolis z Athen isch sit 1986 Däil vom UNESCO-Wältkulturerb. Noch em Theodor Heuss isch si näben em Golgota und em Kapitol äine vo de Hüügel, wo Europa uf ene gründet worde isch. Dr griechisch Staat het wäge däm d Akropolis mit em Öiropäische Kulturerb-Siigel uszäichnet.

The Acropolis of Athens! The greatest and finest sanctuary of ancient Athens. The imposing Parthenon is the most magnificent creation of Athenian democracy at the height of its power.

Democracy. It started here, at this very point. Just think about it!
