Welcome

Dear friends!
We welcome you to the web site of Lato, the official Centre for Greek Culture & language of Amsterdam.
Lato was established in Amsterdam in 2016 and from then until now its biggest strength comes from the love of the residents of this country for Greece.
At Lato we organize language courses, workshops, seminars and a series of cultural events (music evenings, book presentations etc) through which we aim to make known the unknown side of a known touristic destination.

“Greece remains an idea that lives through her culture”.

We look forward to exploring this idea together!
