Bombed shelter?

No, it hasn't been bombed.

These apartments are found on the outskirts of town, near the new Nea Hora traffic lights.

There are many cases of unfinished buildings in Greece; they are homes and offices that were started many years ago. Although they're being lived in, the owners never got round to executing tasks like painting and anything to do with aesthetic appeal. Laws have changed this situation; a building must now have a certain amount of necessary features before it is allowed to have electricity running through it.


  1. Sounds like Manila :(

    I just got a new computer and I can now visit your blog again without it slowing down!!! I'm so happy!

  2. Hi Maria! I heard once that there was some kind of tax explanation for that, as before beeing complete there were some taxes that wouldn't be paid by the property owners... Maybe it was in some other country... ;)

    Blogtrotter has a moved to another country on its 250th post. Enjoy and have a great Sunday!

  3. My parents lived in a half-finished house for a couple of years before they finished the outside (the inside looked pretty cool from day 1 though). Maybe this house is also quite neat on the inside.
