Greek history & culture

If you are one of those people who love observing the buildings while walking the streets of a foreign city, this list will be a treat! There are numerous remarkable buildings in Athens, but you have to know where to look for them. So, here is a list of 15 outstanding buildings in our city that we believe will give you a better insight into Athens' secrets!

The citable of Athens was wisely chosen to be built on the top of the hill it is still found today, with the location having significant strategic importance; apart from being the city’s higher point, it was also surrounded by three hills that offered protection: Pnyka hill, Areopagus (Mars Hill) and Philopappou hill. Each hill had its own importance during ancient times, along with a myth associated with it. Those myths have stood the test of time, and have survived to this day

Carnival is a festive season people either love or hate. While it makes some people excited, eager to dress up and go silly with their friends, it also irritates others that find no sense in dressing up. In our country, there are several local customs which remain to exist throughout the centuries, despite being somewhat forgotten by younger generations. Even if you are one of those who dislike being silly, you should not miss the opportunity to visit a small town in Greece to enjoy the most popular Greek carnival fest. You can immerse yourself into the Greek carnival traditions through modern carnival parades, in Renti or Moschato of Athens, Patra, Rethymno or Ksanthi.
