You read technopolis and you imagine a modern technology dome. Well it's not. Yeah, it always features modern exhibitions, weird collections, avant-guard artists but...all that happens in an old brick-stone building complex where the gas production site once was. If you like Tate Modern, this is as close as you'll get in Greece. Great walk around in Keramikos, very artistic... More

Technopolis is conveniently placed close to Omonoia square and Monastiraki, so it is easily accessible. It hosts a wide variety of art-related events, such as concerts, exhibitions etc. Just keep that in mind when you visit Greece and make sure that you know the agenda, in case there is something interesting for you.

I visited the Athens Photo Festival 2012 exhibition and I really enjoyed it. I thought the entry fee was reasonable (5 euros). Technopolis used to be a gasworks factory, and many of the original features are preserved, which is very interesting. Not your typical gallery! Nearest metro station is Kerameikos.

interesting place. old factory, new art space. architecturally it is different than the rest of Athens. i'd love to go to a jazz concert there... I am told there will be a comic book convention of sorts. gazi area is good for clubbing so go there early, it takes 5 mn to see it.

The whole name of this area is Gazi Technopolis Manos Hatzidakis with eight of the buildings named after Greek poets. This hot spot has both past industrial architecture and modern facilities mixed together in a chic way. On the night time you can see this old gas factory from miles away because it is bathing in colorful lights. It is... More

It is the place to be!!! Many young people, great shows, unique events. What else to say?! The best part is that the acsess is very easy no matter where you are staying. You just take the underground to Egaleo and get off at Keramikos, you walk for 5 minutes and you are there! :)

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighbourhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
