Stadiou Street is one of the most important recipients of the city officials efforts public efforts to change the look of the city's streets during the recent years.
The results are impressive with clean, painted fronts of old neoclassical buildings, beautiful sidewalks, lamps and lighting design during the night that creates a feeling that one usually gets in the cities of Central Europe.
Hence, Stadiou street, that is parallel to Panepistimiou Avenue, connects similarly to both Omonia and Syntagma Squares.
Many theaters and movie houses are on this street and, a little before Syntagma Square there is Kolokotronis Square with General Kolokotronis statue and the National Historical Museum - where the Parliament was housed many years before.
