What I can see

Today, it is the most popular municipality of the northern areas of Athens. The strong commercial centre of the municipality has attracted a lot of people from all over the city and beyond, leaving behind other popular areas in the region, such as Maroussi and Kifissia. The market of Chalandri is considered one of the leading in the country in terms of traffic and variety of shops and products. In addition, there are all kinds of restaurants and a wide range of choices in bars and cafes. Within the boundaries of Chalandri we also find a variety of buildings, from antiquities to contemporary architectural creations.

What I can't see

Chalandri belongs to the largest municipalities of Attica. The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In ancient times it was called “Flya”. In the middle ages it was most likely called Chalandri which means bed, monk dormitory or monk hut. During the first half of the 20th century, the village of Chalandri was a small settlement near Athens. After the rapid urbanization of the second half of the 20th century, it turned into a vital part of the city.
