Visited July, 2007
However, on our trip to Athens, we did not happen to stumble upon this branch of the Eleftheroudakis chain, but the one in Nikis street, near Syntagma. The Nikis bookstore offers a moderate, yet very interesting, selection of English titles. The prices at Eleftheroudakis bookstores range from reasonable to moderately high.
Eleftheroudakis was founded in 1898, its owners value and respect its long history very much, and they're doing their best to use all their experience to fulfill the bookstore's mission. The extensive database covers over 200.000 Greek and foreign titles. The variety of books on offer at Eleftheroudakis stores is organized according to basic categories and subjects and comprises both general and specialized sections, such as: Greek and translated literature, foreign-language literature, dictionaries and learning methods for foreign languages, cookery, psychology, popular science, art, architecture, design, theatre, cinema, photography, sports, science, history, politics, children's books, medical books, IT books, maps, guides and much much more. Special book-related events take place in Eleftheroudakis stores on regular basis, and quite often they're held in English language.
