1960s Vintage Photos Capture the Spirit of Christmas in Athens 

Christmas in Athens has always been a special time of year. From shoppers strolling around to the Christmas tree in Syntagma Square, the city comes alive with people everywhere.

To get into the Festive Season, we take a look back at the Greek Capital in the 1960s, with some stunning images that highlight the beauty of the city 60 years ago. 

The photographs were taken by Kostas Balafas and Dimitris Harisiadis, who captured the Christmas spirit in Athens, in vibrant colour and in classic black and white shots.

They have been released again by the Benaki Museum.
