The Greek postal code system is administered by ELTA. Each city street or rural region has a unique five-digit zip code number, and its 'postal code' which is shortly known as (ΤΚ). The first three digits identify the city, municipality or prefecture. In major cities, the final two digits identify streets or portions of streets. Postal codes beginning with the digits between 100 and 180 are used for the city of Athens; the beginning sequences 180 to 199 are used for other parts of the prefecture of Attica, with the exception of Corfu and Rhodes.A complicated system relates the numbers used for the second and third digits to the numbers used in the fourth and fifth digits. The zip code system in the Greece nation is segregated in such a way that the 5 digit zip code system has split in 2 way i.e. the first 3 digit indicates the city in the Greece country and the last 2 digit indicates the post office destination.
