Academias (or Akadimias) Ave in Athens Greece: Academias (or Akadimias) is one of the most popular avenues in Athens. It runs parallel to Panepistimiou street and Solonos street, starting from Vassilissis Sofias Avenue to Kannigos Square in the neighborhood of Exarchia. After World War II, this street was renamed to Roosevelt Street to honor the US president, but this name was not much used by the Athenians and the street came back to its original name.
