For music lovers, and especially those still buying vinyl records and CDs, a visit to a new city is an opportunity to search for and find record shops that could offer them the chance to discover music and things they could not find in their city. Although we live in a digital world and have the ability to search and buy everything over the Internet, nothing could replace the excitement of discovering a rare vinyl record, an out-of-stock CD, or an album by an artist you have never heard of.

My favorite morning walk in the Monastiraki Flea Market always ends with a visit to Zaharias Records. Here I can browse a huge and ever-changing collection of second-hand vinyl records and CDs and always discover something exciting to buy. The shop began its history in 1993, among many others that sold used records in Monastiraki in the previous decades. In the years that followed, however, it has become the most popular and established shop in Monastiraki and has one of the largest collections in Greece. It has all kinds of music and the widest variety of Greek artists. The music is very well organized according to genres and artists and the shop staff is always willing to answer any questions you may have. Among his famous customers, you could find Robert Plant, Alice Cooper, Saint Etienne, and the band Triffids.

Zaharias is the best place to visit if you really want to explore a whole new world of music.
