President Sakellaropoulou Receives Athens Mayor Bakoyannis

ATHENS — President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou on Thursday received Athens Mayor Kostas Bakoyannis at the Presidential Mansion.

Bakoyannis briefed the president on the municipality's urban improvement projects in downtown Athens, which are part of the works for the Great Walk of Athens, whose pilot implementation began on Thursday.

Sakellaropoulou expressed hope that the works will help make everyday life better for Athens residents and visitors, underlining that the city's historic centre must again become a pole of attraction and regain the vibrancy it deserves.

At the same time, the president said that efforts to restore the historic building that housed the Attiko cinema must be speeded up, in order to close what has, for years, been an "open wound" in the heart of Athens.
