While wandering around Plakas streets and very close to Monastiraki square I can't help but notice at Vrysakiou street this great traditional building.
It's name is Vryssaki. At the beginning I didn't really expect, what I was about to see, but soon enough after stepping inside, I realized I am standing inside of a marvelous and classic old house.
It looks a lot like a cozy den to me, which is located in the deepest part of the capital, but also at the same time far away from it.
The peaceful and tranquil atmosphere travels me to the past and isolates me from the city's noise.
There is also a great terrace on the first floor, where I sit and enjoy a cup of coffee while relaxing in friendly scenery.
I could describe Vryssaki as a place that hosts citizens interested in art and gives them the opportunity to gather, to get active, to express themselves, to act and to participate in everyday's life events and activities. Sometimes through exhibitions and short plays and sometimes through concerts and films.
It is a meeting point, where I spend many of my mornings and evenings, with good friends enjoying this little treasure in the heart of Athens.
Getting close to 26 years old, I feel fresh and full of energy. I was born in Athens, Greece and come from a delightful island in the south of Greece, Kythira. For the past 8 years I have been working as a German teacher, which is something I love, since I find teaching creative and challenging. There is a word that some years ago stucked with me and characterizes me. This is' Wanderlust'. It means the strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world and it expresses my great passion about traveling. In addition to that, I got the inspiration of taking beautiful images and I am always willing to find beauty even in unattractive elements. Last but not least, what you must know about me is that I am a cat lover and I find nothing more hilarious than observing a cat's playful behavior! Peggy also writes for www.mysecretathens.gr
