Sister Cities of the World

Sister cities of Chalandri

Chalandri (Greek: Χαλάνδρι, Katharevousa: Χαλάνδριον - Chalandrion, Ancient Greek: Φλύα - Flya) is a northern suburb in Athens, Greece, and a municipality of the Attica region. It is the birthplace of Euripides.

Chalandri is a suburb in Northern Athens, around 12 kilometres (7 miles) from the centre; its location corresponds with one of the 10 ancient Dimoi (boroughs) of Athens, known as Flya (Greek: Φλύα). Chalandri was a small village in Attica until the rapid expansion of Athens and of the village during the 1960s and 1970s made the two meet; the border with Athens is now indistinguishable. The area, nevertheless, remains relatively sparsely populated, and has one of the highest ratio of open green areas per citizen in Athens. Several embassies are based in Chalandri. It is one of the largest suburb in terms of population, with more than 70,000 residents. It holds an independent municipality status since 1944. Chalandri is served by the Chalandri metro station.
