Decline of the city
Decades of explosive growth have created infrastructural problems and a socio-cultural imbalance in Athens. The decline of the city centre is evident and accelerated by poor economic conditions. The city has a poor quality of residence and life and suffers from severe environmental degradation and a lack of urban green space.
