What I can see
To the south of the city is Glyfada, one of the most robust municipalities in Athens. It is divided into Ano (Upper) Glyfada and Kato (Lower) Glyfada. Ano Glyfada is located above Vouliagmenis Avenue. It is a quiet residential area, without much traffic or other noisy activities. The activities of a city are concentrated in Kato Glyfada, with shopping, sports, public services, entertainment venues, beaches and 4 marinas. From the 1980s to the late 2000s, it attracted many visitors from all over the city who came for the department stores and international brands. After the financial crisis of 2009, its popularity faded significantly, but the traces of the commercial prosperity of the previous decades can still be found.
What I can't see
From antiquity until today it has been an area known for its strong economy and vibrant culture. Its original name was Exoni and it was famous for its red mullets. The name “Glyfada” originated in the early 20th century, due to the brackish (glyfo in Greek) water found in some local wells. At the same time, it was considered a spa town and a holiday settlement, but everything changed during World War II when there was heavy bombing of the nearby military airport of Elliniko.
