Dionysos, Greece

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Dionysos is a rather exclusive suburb in northeastern Attica, Greece just about 23 kilometers northeast of Athens. Dionyssos is almost purely residential, but there are a few shops. Dionysos sits in the northwestern part of the Penteli mountains and its forests that are dominating the south. Another series of mountains and forests lie to the north. Much of the municipality are forested. Dionyssos since the mid to late 1980s is connected with the urban sprawl of Athens but it is east of the agglomeration of Athens as well as the Megali Daktylo.
The residential area covers the western part of the municipality. Dionyssos is passed by a road linking to the mountains and to Nea Makri. Dionyssos is accessed with an interchange with GR-1/E75 at the 19th km 8 kilometers north-east and at the 21st kilometers near Varympompi 8 kilometers south-east and GR-83 which is also known as Theseos Avenue to the west. The Athenian plain lies to the west. Dionyssos is located south-east of Thiva, south of Euboea and Oropos, south-west of Marathon, north-east of Kifissia and north-east of the Attiki Odos.
Until the 1980s and the 1990s, farmlands cover the northwestern part and the slopes of Dionyssos which existed into the 1990s and were mainly luxury homes. Forests covers the central and much of Anoixi. Most of the population are urban while until the 1960s and the 1970s were rural. The street plan is mainly of mixed triangles and lines that run parallel not as a grid and some others and other varieties. Dionyssos is also famous for its marble, the White Marble of Dionyssos in which marble mining was common near Dionysos. Dionyssos has few schools, lyceums, a few gymnasia, banks, churches, a post office and a few squares.
