Snowy Athens: Once every 5 years!
Do you think Athens is always sunny? 🌞
Do you think that is never cold in Greece? ❄️
Think again, we have some news for you!
Living in the historical centre for the last 6 years yesterday we woke up to the rare sight of the entire capital being blanketed in a thick covering of snow 🌨️🌨️.
Featuring a thick layer of white, fluffy snow, the Greek capital’s famed monuments and neighbourhoods have taken on a new beauty which only adds to their allure.
Although heavy snowfall is not uncommon in Greece’s northern and mountainous regions, it is very unusual in Athens, making its snowy monuments a rare sight.
Guess what: The Parthenon looks even more gorgeous dressed in white. So, we decided to have a big walk in the city to take photos and share with you a rare glimpse of snowy Athens.
