Cool Places

Have a walk in the Turkish part, eat a baklava, and see how much it's different from the south part. Have a look at the street ending on the borders and closed by a wall.

You can have a look at Trikoupi street, it's a very funny street with many immigrants. You can get the cheapest beers there at the Nikolas kiosk.

If you want to go out and listen some good alternative music you can check Svoura bar in Thermopylon street.

You can also hang out near Faneroumeni church where you can meet some nice people, and find some nice bars, especially Kalakathoumena one of the oldest bar of the old town.
