Thousands of Greeks flocked to the city center to watch the best the Greek Armed forces have to offer.
The military parade commenced at 11:00am and made its way from Vasilissis Amalias Avenue, past Hellenic Parliament, with official dignitaries in attendance including the President of Greece, Katerina Sakellaropoulou.
The parade then made it way down Panepistimiou Street where the crowds line each side of the street in front of the Attica department store and other iconic neo-classical buildings including the Academy of Athens, the National Bank of Greece and the National Library, all the way to Omonia Square.
