The Parthenon at Dusk (a photo)

Here’s another picture from our trip to Nashville in 2019. This is a good shot I got of the Parthenon as the sunlight was fading. During one of our last days in the city, we spent some time in Centennial Park, though we didn’t get a chance to go inside the awesome building.

The Parthenon is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens, Greece. It now functions as an art museum in Centennial Park in Nashville. From what I can remember, the park was very close to Vanderbilt University.

The Parthenon is one of Rachel’s favorites in Nashville and she was very excited to show it to me. It didn’t disappoint – it’s a really cool landmark. I just read on Wikipedia that it was built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Nashville is nicknamed the “Athens of the (American) South,” so many of the buildings in that late-19th century exposition – like the Parthenon – were ancient replicas.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
