Nice bridge and the city seems like it's not overrun with too many people. Thanks for sharing.

Να σαι καλά bijesnivrabac! Here is another photo of our church :



Distant view of the dome from the port



Greek cities are not green at all (with very few exceptions) so to have some roads with big trees on the sides is really something very nice especially during the summer months when it is very hot . Here we see a photo of Konstantinoupoleos street as it looks in Feb 2010.



One of the few tall buildings (there is a limit on the height)



Hagia Sophia square

Interesting polykatoikia



Patras fortress as seen from the nearby green hill (dassylion)



Agiou Nikolaou steps



View from the northeastern suburbs, we see the sportshall, the suburb of Kastelokampos and the blue sea

Looks nice! Interesting to see other Greek cities than Athens on the forum.

It seems Patras is the 4th largest city in Greece after Athens, Thessaloniki and Pireus:

thanks nightsky, btw Piraeus can not be considered as a separate city from Athens in our days and neither can be considered a separate city any other municipality of Athens.
See any aerial photo of Athens to understand better what i mean

Patras beach (3-4 Km from centre) , March 2010



Typical street (Odos Lefkosias) in the neighborhood of Agia Sophia



Marina , March 2010
