Heavy snowfall in Athens has blanketed the Acropolis and other ancient monuments and halted COVID-19 vaccinations.
Snow is unusual in the Greek capital, and the rare sight stopped most public transportation, including ferries from the Greek island.
The snow arrived as the city of more than 3 million residents and several other parts of Greece remain in lockdown to curb coronavirus infections.
