Whether you are a vegetarian or not, this something you have to see. It’s where your food comes from, most people who go to the supermarket don’t realize this. There’s not much for you to buy, unless you have an apartment and are cooking. But...More

Omonia Square is as plain in appearance as Syntagma is
grand. Surrounded largely by functional blocks from
the 1950s and 60s and no longer boasting its
