12 Reviews
Kotzia Square (Plateia Kotzia)
Kotzia Square (Plateia Kotzia) is located in central Athens, Greece and is lined with neo-classical buildings from the 19th century. One of the buildings here is the City Hall of Athens, which is decorated with busts of famous Athenians such as Pericles and Solon. Another impressive building on the square is the National Bank of Greece. The square was built in 1874 and was originally called Loudovikou Square. The current name is for a former Athens mayor, Konstantinos Kotzias. This square was the starting and finishing point of the men's and women's road race events during the 2004 Summer Olympics. 

Ancient ruins and antiquities were discovered here, and now you can see them on display in the center of the square. Tombs, a small building, and part of an ancient road are all on display, reminding us of the long history of this city. In the areas surrounding the square, visitors can find pedestrian streets with plenty of shopping and several restaurants and cafes, some right on the square with outdoor seating.

Practical Info

Kotzia Square is surrounded by Efpolidos Street, Athinas Street, Kratinou Street, and Aiolou Street. To get there, take the metro to Omonoia Square and walk a few minutes south.
Address: Kotzia Square, Athens, Attica, Greece 10551, Greece
