What I can see

The northern terminal of the oldest metro line is Kifissia station. It has a simple neoclassical entrance, a side and a central platform. The canopies are made of metal, wood and glass. The metal awnings and the glass surfaces alternate on wooden rafters in a sloping position, and they are supported on metal columns. The design of the columns refers to American industrial-urban aesthetics of the first half of the 20th century and blends harmoniously with the natural element (wooden rafters).

What I can't see

It was built on the site of the old Attica Railway Station, where the “Beast” ended. It was called as such because of the many fumes and the noise it caused. The country houses of the upper class were located in Kifissia because their owners sought to be close to the summer royal palaces of Tatoi.
