The inauguration of the Athenian Capitol multi-purpose cultural, commercial and recreational facility and the Greek Vehicle Museum has been postponed to Wednesday, December 22, from the originally scheduled date of December 15 due to a 24-hour general strike called on the latter date by the General Confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE), it was announced on Monday.

The Hellenic Seminar and Reception of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) will take place as planned on December 15 at the Athenian Capitol's Conference Center.

The shops in the Athenian Capitol mall will open on Thursday, December 16, as originally planned.

The facility will also host Athens' first Vehicle History Museum, which includes more than 270 vehicles in its three-storey building. The oldest exhibit on display is an 1895 fire pump, while other highlights include cars belonging to historical figures of the arts and politics, some of which were acquired through international auctions over the last three decades.

The mall also contains a conference center, a 3D cinema, some 30 shops, and 10 restaurants and cafes, as well as an 8-storey underground garage with a capacity of 800 cars.

The 45 million euro investment by the Haragionis Group is expected to attract more than three million visitors annually.
