We started out day with a quiet stroll through the National Garden. 

Just outside the entrance to the park, we took a moment to appreciate the impressive Parliament building and a nearby square containing a pretty fountain.


The garden itself contains not only the usual flower arrangements and beauty spots, but also a mini zoo and even a kids theme park.


We spent a few minutes relaxing on one of the many benches, clearly a popular area for locals to sit and read a newspaper/ book.


After this, we walked around a small lake and admired a few animals in the zoo.


You could easily spend a couple of hours here one morning relaxing with a book, or simply use it as a nice walk through from the metro to the Temple of Zeus or Olympic Stadium just south of the gardens.
