Technopolis, Athens
(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Technopolis is an industrial museum and a major cultural venue of the City of Athens, Greece, in the neighborhood of Gazi, next to Keramikos and very close to the Acropolis. It is dedicated to the memory of the great Greek composer Manos Hatzidakis, which is why it is also known as "Gazi Technopolis Manos Hatzidakis". It has been in operation since 1999 and is situated in the city's former gasworks which were founded in 1857, occupying an area of about 30.000 m2. Numerous exhibitions, seminars, music concerts and other cultural activities take place in the grounds. Eight of the buildings of the compound bear the names of famous Greek poets: Andreas Embirikos, Angelos Sikelianos, Yannis Ritsos, Kostis Palamas, Takis Papatsonis, Constantine Cavafis and Kostas Varnalis. On the second floor of the Angelos Sikelianos building is a museum dedicated to the renowned opera singer Maria Callas.

  • Urban place not far from the city centre, in the evening, it's not very crowded due to parked mopeds and cars. Sometimes arrange concerts on a makeshift stage. And the ticket is not necessarily to buy music is heard well and outside of Technopolis.

  • great place in a popular area of Athens that has alot of bars and restaurants .It usually has good lineups in the summer months. Jazz festivals, photography exhibitions etc
  • Vibrant and creative space, lots of events taking place in this area.
  • Gazi is a gorgeous area. Lots of new hip restaurants. The technopolis this evening had a movie show and free ice cream. Tons of people walking around. Would definitely save this for 9 pm or later.
  • Place is very lively, with markets, pop-up shops and events. Be sure to check out what is happening when you are visiting the city.
  • Campe here for the dinner in the sky restaurant and loved the area. A concert was going on beneath us and you get to see what the locals do.
