Kotzia Square

This square is positioned south of Omonia square in the center of Athens, and north of Monastiraki square. It is surrounded by Efpolidos, Aiolou and Athinas streets, and it has been a very important square for the city since it was made back in the 19th century. It was named after Mayor Konstantinos Kotzias and it was also referred to as the National Resistance square as it was the place dedicated to commemorate the Resistance of the Greek people during WWII. Now, this square is very lively with a lot of events and festivals hosted here seasonally, and a plethora of markets and stands keep the area crowded. Most of the buildings around you are public service buildings and you will also find the Greek National Bank Cultural Center and the Town Hall of the Municipality of Athens.
