Athens Center Gets Four New Pedestrianized Streets

Four new pedestrianized streets will be available in Athens city center as of Thursday, June 22, as part of the municipality’s program to restore the “commercial triangle of Athens” (market place of the city center).

With the four new pedestrianized streets — Chrysospiliotissis, Nikiou, Polykleitou and Vlachava (shaded in red on the map) — the municipality has wrapped up the first phase of the program.

As of Thursday cars will no longer be able to turn left from Praxitelous Street to Chrysospiliotissis, Vissis and Nikiou streets. It is reminded that vehicles can circulate from Syntagma and Stadiou to Athinas Street only from the streets of Mitropoleos, Karagiorgis Servias and Sofokleous.

The municipality’s aim is to transform the “commercial triangle of Athens” in order to improve living conditions in the Greek capital that includes rules on the management of public spaces, the circulation and parking of vehicles, waste management and the display of posters and graffiti street art.

Streets previously pedestrianized in Athens city center in accordance to the program were those of Vyssis and Kairi and Agathonos and Karoris (up to Voreou Street).

Funds for the restoration of the “commercial triangle of Athens” have been donated by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
