The Panathenaic Stadium has a capacity of 50,000 seats for all kind of events that were hosted for Athletics, Gymnastics, Weightlifting and Wrestling. In the 4th century the stadium was abandoned because of the rise of Christianity and the bloody battles that happened within; until 1896 it hosted the first modern Olympics. In the late 19th century, the stadium had major reconstructions and took its final form and is now a really interesting touristic place in Athens.
