  1. Plaka: Pláka is the old historical neighbourhood of Athens, clustered around the northern and eastern slopes of the Acropolis, and incorporating labyrinthine streets and neoclassical architecture. Plaka is built on top of the residential areas of the ancient town of Athens. It is known as the "Neighbourhood of the Gods" due to its proximity to the Acropolis and its many archaeological sites.

  2. Plaka is a village located in the Apokoronas region of the northwest coast of the island of Crete, Greece. It is located in Chania regional unit. Plaka is two kilometres from Almirida, a resort which it overlooks. Situated high up the hill there are wonderful views over the Mediterranean Sea. Plaka has tavernas, bar/coffee shops, a grocery store and a Greek Orthodox church. There are many interesting walks to take around the village, usually through olive groves, or to the next villages of Kampia and Kokkino Chorio. Plaka simply means 'flat place' in Greek. This small village has changed considerably since about 2002 when a large building programme started with cement houses stretching towards the sea and all the nearest villages. You will hear more English spoken than Greek in the square.
