nope
Hillerslev
yep, at last
it’s the birthplace of Jonas Vingegaard, who just won a bike race
he has said that cycling is a better career than working in the local fish factory
I couldn’t find a picture of that, and there isn’t much else in the town other than regular Danish-looking houses
the pic is the Hillerslev Kirke - a bit prosaic, but maybe they’re just plain Lutheran folks who don’t fuss about saints

Panepistimiou Street?
yep - one of the grand public spaces of which Athens has several
the square in the foreground is in front of the National University / National Library / Athens Academy complex [to left of pic]
the street name Πανεπιστημίου means ‘university’ [street names are usually genitive case]
old people might remember the Greek coup of 1967 and the horrific tyranny that followed until popular opposition defeated it in 1974
along with the Polytechnic not far away, this area was one of the focal points for that uprising - students being crushed under tanks etc
