Heavy snowfall blanketed the Acropolis and other ancient monuments in Athens on Tuesday, as the Greek capital received its heaviest downpour in over a decade.

Snow is common in Greece’s mountains and in the north of the country, but much rarer in the Capital, bringing joy to many Athenians who emerged cautiously outside, snapping photos on their balconies and in the streets. Meteorologists forecast the cold front to subside by the end of the week and in the meantime, we have gathered some magical images that are a rare but beautiful sight!
