"The rosary or worry beads" Greece Local Custom Tip by Balam

Greece Local Customs: 236 reviews and 186 photos

The rosary that most of the Greek men are holding in their hands, sitting outside the kafeneion (cafe in Greece), has no religious meaning, but is only a way of killing time. Try and buy one, it's actually much more difficult to swing it than it looks like.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
