Come join us for a few drinks at one of Athen's best-kept gardens.

One hundred eighty years ago, this was not the center of the city. It might be hard to picture, but Klafthmonos Square, at the northern outskirts of Athens, was merely an unattended piece of land and the houses here were scarce. The residence of Stamatis Dekozis Vouros – which is nowadays home to the Athens City Museum – was built in 1833 and was shortly thereafter connected with the neighboring house of Afthonides. This was the building complex where Otto, first King of Greece, settled, after his wedding to 18-year-old Amalia.

It was the young queen who organized the garden around the temporary royal residence, in 1836. “The old Palace garden” was the first public garden in the Greek capital.
