Greece allowed cafes and restaurants to reopen on Monday 25th, 2020 after the coronavirus restrictions. For the forthcoming summer season, here are some hidden gems, bars and coffee places in Athens, with beautiful yards and cozy gardens
The national flag of Greece consists of a white cross on a blue background in the upper left corner, with nine equal horizontal stripes of blue alternating with white. The cross represents the Eastern Orthodox Christianity of the Greeks.
It is traditionally believed that the nine stripes represent the nine syllables of the phrase ‘Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος’ (‘Eleftheria I Thanatos’), meaning (Freedom or Death). But some believe that are meant to symbolise the nine letters of the Greek word ‘freedom’ (ελευθερία or eleftheria).
The colours White and Blue, symbolise the colours of the Greek sky and the sea.
This is one of my favourite places in Athens. If you stroll around Athens city centre I highly recommend to step into this bistro, which combines 50s vintage style and premium Greek cuisine. The food is absolutely delicious made of high quality local ingredients. The staff is also extremely friendly.
