Ethniki Amyna (Εθνική Άμυνα) is an Athens Metro Blue Line (Line 3) station with an island platform, situated close to the Ministry of National Defence and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications. When the Metro first opened, it served as the terminal station for all trains to that direction (Syntagma station being the other end of the line at the time).
