Forbes: 12 Coolest Neighborhoods

12 coolest neighborhoods

Forbes business magazine has announced the 12 coolest neighborhoods around the world.

Keramikos neighborhood of Athens is among them and we are proud to be there !

The editors of Forbes note that Keramikos seems to live in a magical world of its own, although just 10 minutes walk from Athens’ buzzing center. Adding that it is a place where old and new, Greece’s storied past and often turbulent present, tradition and forward-looking creativity all coexist happily together.

At the weekly street market, the neighborhood comes alive in a riot of sights, smells and flavors. In recent years Keramikos’s low rents and old-time feel have lured creative young Athenians to the area, where they have opened inventive restaurants, bars and cafés along with galleries and theaters.

Joining Keramikos’s rich trove of existing old-school establishments, these new spots have helped create one of the Athens’ most exciting dining and cultural scenes.

Thank you Forbes!
