Sparta is the administrative capital of Laconia Prefecture, Greece.

Understand

At the decree of King Otto of Greece, the present day city of Sparta was built in 1834 near the site of the original city. With its wide, tree lined boulevards, the city was designed to be a paragon for all Greek towns.

The modern town still reflects this original vision, and is a very pleasant and green city set before a backdrop of lush hills. The city is situated in the valley of Evrotas River to the east of the Taigetos Mount at an altitude of 210m.
