Dourgouti is a neighborhood that belongs to the City of Athens and specifically to the Neos Kosmos district. According to older residents (descendants of refugees from Asia Minor and internal migrants who themselves or their ancestors settled during the period 1922 to 1974), within the limits of the neighborhood one has to include the slum and the so called “Italika“. However, the neighborhood suffered major changes and acquired its present form in the mid-1970s.
Dourgouti is located in a very central point, 2 km from the center of Athens, Syntagma Square, and is easily accessible since many buses pass through Syggrou avenue. Moreover Dourgouti is served by the Metro network (stop “Neos Kosmos“) and the tram network (stops “Kasomouli” and “Neos Kosmos“). Also within the bounds of Dourgouti or in a small distance from this there are some uses of wider metropolitan importance which interact with the neighborhood such as the Intercontinental Hotel, Ethniki Asfalistiki, the Onassis Cultural Center and the Panteion University.
