What I can see

The walk on this street is full of images and evokes a variety of emotions and moods. Starting from the east to the centre, the contact with history is gradual and noticeable. We find a) sports facilities, such as the National Kautanzoglio Stadium and the National Swimming Pool, b) nature, such as KIPOS3, c) museums, such as the Sports Museum, the Atatürk Museum and the Teloglion Foundation, d) sculptures, such as those of Georgios Vyziinos and Lysimachos Kautanzoglou and those of the Evangelistria Cemetery, e) architecturally important buildings, such as the Ministry of Macedonia-Thrace and the School of Sciences of the AUTH and f) monuments, such as the Church of Agios Dimitrios, the Column of the Snakes and parts of the city walls.

What I can't see

The name of the street comes from Saint Dimitrius, who is the patron saint of the city and the street passes by the church he is worshiped.
