Top 5 – Games to learn from a Greek

#AthenStyle #FamousHostels #endlessummer

Upon your visit in Greece, a fun thing to do in your free time when you’re not exploring the cities, is to learn a few Greek tradition games. Some of these following ones have been around for ages!

Backgammon is a main pass time game that Greeks play all around. If you take a stroll around from the center of Athens to the outskirts of town, you will see people of all ages in small cafes playing different games in this wooden box! In Greece it’s generally named Tavli, but a few different games that are mainly played are Plakoto, Fevga and Portes.

People playing cards is also very common in Greece. Again, mostly in cafes. The majority of the elderly like to pass their time this way. Biriba and Paschenza are two main games that everybody loves.

​Top 5 – Food in Greece

The Greek cuisine is considered one of the best in the world, due to the Mediterranean lifestyle. This country is lucky for its soil because it’s the main part in the world with so many olive trees that give the virgin olive oil. All Greeks use it in the kitchen for pretty much everything they cook!

Upon your visit in Greece, doesn’t matter how long you’re staying, you MUST try the following delicious dishes!

Mousaka

A casserole in the oven with eggplant, potato, minced meat and cream on top. Probably the most traditional dish Greece has!

Pastitsio

Another main casserole dish in the oven made by a type of macaroni of your choice (usually rigatoni), minced meat and cream on top. Delicious!

Gemista

A classic dish of stuffed vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplant. Filled with rice, chopped potato and other vegetables. In some areas of Greece they also add minced meat. Tasty and healthy!

Salad Choriatiki (Farmers Salad)

The famous Greek salad that combines tomato, cucumber, green pepper, onion, olives and feta cheese all mixed together with virgin olive oil and oregano.

Spanakopita

A pie with the famous Greek filo pastry, with spinach, feta cheese, onion in the filling, all wrapped around and baked in the oven! It’s usually made in a large pan and served in pieces. But for sure for can’t stop at just one piece!

The restaurants in Athens cover the full range of the Greek menu, so the days you’ll spend here are going to leave you and your stomach fully satisfied! AtheStyle is a great place to stay with cheap accomodation and of course to eat at it’s famous Rooftop Bar with it’s killer view of the Acropolis!
