A few words about the Bank of Greece:
The Bank of Greece is the central bank of the country.
It is an independent public authority: it ensures price stability, ie the control of inflation (price growth rate) and the stability and smooth operation of the financial system (banks, insurance companies, etc.)
Remaining institutionally and functionally independent, it is subject to the democratic control of Parliament.
The Bank of Greece is an integral part of the Eurosystem and participates with the other national central banks of the Eurozone and the European Central Bank in the formulation of the single monetary policy on the common currency.
The Bank of Greece is not a commercial bank. A citizen can not deposit his money, nor take a loan from it. In a sense, the Bank of Greece is the bank of the banks, that is, it accepts deposits from the commercial banks that operate in the country and lends money to them.
