Omonia Square Athens  

Omonia Square Athens - Attica (Greece)

Omonia Square. The Omonia Square in Athens is considered the most central point of Athens. If you want to make a trip from Athens to explore Athens, always start from here. The metro of Omonia is here, but also several important Athenian roads start here (Stadiou, Panepistimiou, Agiou Konstantinou, Athinas and slightly more to the east Aeolou and Patission str.) Omonia is very lively, there are shops open daily 24 hours. Around Omonia Square are shops, cafes, snack bars and newspaper kiosks that are always open.

Omonia square was originally called "Plateia Anaktoron", meaning "the square of the Royal Palace". Later it was named after the former King, King Otto. Only in 1862 the square got its present name. Nowadays, around Omonia Square, a lot of foreign workers have their business out here or are working somewhere. Sometimes it seems as if there live no longer Greeks. Especially the residential area west and southwest of Omonia has therefore lost much of its charm and one speaks sometimes of ghettos.
