Since the establishment of the Historical Archive in 1962, we have aimed to preserve and promote our archival material from 1841 to the present day. Our rich archives and collections include valuable documents of National Bank of Greece, as well as originals or copies of archives and collections of other banks, companies, institutions and important historical figures that have come into our Archive's ownership.
Creating the future
The Historical Archive enables students, the academic community and the general public to access valuable historical documents under conditions that meet the highest international standards.
The files are catalogued, photographed, and digitally organized. The specially designed researcher's room allows access to the online system of archival and historical information (electronic index) and the reading and reproduction of the archival and bibliographic material (reading, digitizing, and printing machines for microfilm, photocopiers, etc.).
In addition to enabling research of its archives and collections, the Historical Archive brings the public into contact with the documents it possesses by producing scholarly publications and holding periodical exhibitions, in Athens and other cities, alongside the permanent exhibition spaces of its own building. The doors are open for individual and group visits, and educational programs for all educational levels can be provided.
The Historical Archive is housed in the Megaro Diomidi, on Tritis Septemvriou Street. It was the first building in Greece constructed specifically to house an archive. In 2001, renovation work on the premises was carried out, transforming it into the state-of-the-art and emblematic archive building of today.
