Market places in northern Greece
Some people say that markets reflect the soul of the city. Perhaps markets are no longer what they once were, but still they are very popular in touristic areas, both for tourists and the local population. The reason for this are, above all, lower prices of fruits and vegetables, as well as clothes and things for the house.
