Greece - Official Set 2008 + 10 Euro Acropolis Museum
The Acropolis of Athens is one of the most admirable historical, cultural and architectural sites in the world. Its monuments provide a link to an age that played a crucial role in the formation of western civilization. The New Acropolis Museum is strategically located close to the southern slope of the Sacred Rock. With state of the art facilities custom designed to house the Acropolis treasures, the New Museum offers an excellent view of the Acropolis, enabling visitors to admire the exhibits in their historical setting. The 10 Euro coin was issued to commemorate the opening of the new museum. On the obverse a panoramic view of the Acropolis can be seen; the museum resides in the base of it. On the reverse, one of the pedimental sculptures from the Parthenon can be observed together with the National emblem of Greece.
