Athanos is the capital city of the Kingdom of Posillipo, as well as the capital city of the United Kingdom of Posillipo and Astey. It is situated on the Bay of Athanos, where Karpathos formerly sat (look back to maps). Originally only home to a small town with the original castle and few houses, Athanos is has grown to be a world leading city, as well as the largest city in the Kingdom of Posillipo. Today we'll take a little travel through Athanos.

We'll start off with a mosaic taken at during the day, it's a little stormy in this picture but hopefully it'll clear away soon.

Great, it's starting to clear up, but sadly it's starting to get dark. As capital of Posillipo, Athanos is home to the Royal Palace of the Vasilisa, or King/Queen (currently queen), and the legislative buildings:

It's also home to the department buildings, some of them shown here as it really starts to darken.

Aw, the rain and fog are starting to come back, that's Posilliponian weather for you. We see a picture you might remember from the scrapped "City of Karpathos", it's the Saint Ettiene's Basilica.

Great! The rain's gone now and there's only a little fog left, we can see downtown Athanos great now! What a picturesque city Athanos is.

Now that we made it through the night we can look at the Dientene District. This is one of Athanos's older districts that's starting to get revamped with newer buildings. What a pretty day is is.

This is one of the newer additions to Athanos, the "Port Athanos." It was built in the last few years to replace an older, smaller port that was there. A lot of land was reclaimed and new port equipment was built, as well as the new bridge. Off to the right are some ships of the Posilliponian Navy running routine patrols.

I'll leave you with a nice night picture of the port, with the bridge all lit up, it's actually a nice little picture.

Great and scenic capital city. Could you please provide the list of add ons you have used for this?

Not too bad not too bad...
I don't mean to sound picky though, but Jasoncw's BAT--The Queralt Hotel--in your fifth picture (secret!) towards the bottom right doesn't really belong...

Partly because it's a very American downtown building, but mostly because there's a huge contrast between that huge white tower and all the European W2Ws, they simply don't go together...

Also, not sure if anybody else has this problem but when I click any of your pictures to see the full image size, it directs to that one 'Port Athanos' picture [img]http://www.simtropolis.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/46.gif[/img]
