Piraeus Municipal Theatre is considered one of the finest examples of 19th-century Greek public architecture, designed by Ioannis Lazarimos. Its construction began in 1884 to be unveiled 11 years later. According to architect Eleni Fessa-Emmanouil, the design is a marriage of Roman, Renaissance and neoclassical architecture that is every bit as grand as its rival in Athens, the Greek National Theatre, which was designed by Ernst Schiller and completed just a few years later.
