Yesterday we were looking for an answer to the question in which year the first ancient Olympic Games were held. Today we will deal with the issue of the first modern Olympics, which is much closer to our times, the tradition of which continues to this day.
The first modern Olympic Games were held in 1896 in Athens, Greece. These were the Summer Olympics. As for the first Winter Olympics, it was not organized until 1924 in Chamonix, France.
