Stock Photo Description: The Parliament Building is guarded by two Greek soldiers in traditional Greek uniforms. These soldiers are the Evzones and there uniforms are a symbol of Greece. The woollen leggings, kilts and tassled caps may make the soldier look rather effete but they are not. The Evzones are the elite of the Greek army and where at onetime recruited from the hardy mountain villagers who had fought against the Turks and later, the Germans for Greek independence. Oddly enough you have to be 6 feet high to join this particular unit which is a rarity amongst Greek men. Stock photography by Eric M Renard.
