More information about Kipseli

The neighborhood used to be an upper-middle-class district. This is why you can spot buildings with interesting architecture, shops, bars, theatres and cinemas as well as the Pedion tou Areos Park, Fonikonos Negri Square and Plateia Agiou Georgiou Square.
During the ’80s, the most wealthy families moved to the suburbs and the region slowly fell in decline. Many shops closed, apartments were neglected and rents were very low.
Apartments hosted families and groups of people who migrated from the Middle East and Africa to Greece for a better future forming a multicultural environment.

After the economic crisis, houses in Kipseli are considered a great real estate investment opportunity while many have been renovated and turned into Airbnbs.
Artists and college students also prefer the region due to its low rents and ethnic identity.

The Municipal Market of Kipseli is located on Fokionos Negri Street. The space is housed in a building of the municipality of Athens and is a meeting and reference point for the residents of Athens. It was created to elevate culture, education, entrepreneurship and social innovation and aims to support the local economy. Various events are hosted there from time to time.
