THE NEW ATHENS’ LANDMARK OMONOIA SQUARE
A fountain, that was the trademark of the square decades ago, has been reinstalled with the aim to create a city oasis. The renovation of Omonia Square is part of an ongoing municipal overhaul program which also includes the recently announced 6.8km city walk dubbed “Megalos Peripatos” (Large Stroll).
One of the main monuments erected on the square is a hydrokinetic sculptural composition “Five Circles” by Greek sculptor, painter and architect George Zongolopoulos.
The upgrade of Omonoia Square was made possible through donations by the A.C. Laskaridis Charitable Foundation, Fontana Fountains, Ellaktor construction group and the Onassis Foundation.
