Greek Children sitting

Greek Children sitting   Children sitting on inflatable rubber rings slide down an artificial ski slope outside Zappeion Hall in central Athens yesterday.

The slope is one of the many attractions that have been set up by the City of Athens as part of Christmas and New Year celebrations in the capital, which cost a total of some 1.5 million euros. The municipality also has plans to hold three separate New Year’s Eve concerts at Syntagma, Kotzia and Klafthmonos squares in the center of the capital. The concerts will be free.
