The Byzantine Collection

Kythira, Greece

The Byzantine Collection is housed in the small post-Byzantine chapel located right by the Church of Analipsi in Livadi. It consists of early Christian, Byzantine and post Byzantine findings that have been collected from various churches of Kythira by the Greek Department of Archeology in an attempt to help preserve the island's religious art.

Although the collection currently exhibited is just a small fraction of everything that has been recovered so far, it includes a wide variety of items such as icons, religious objects, mosaics, murals, frescoes and more.

The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 08:00 to 16:00.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
