Glyka Nera

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.
Glyka Nera is a suburb in the northeastern part of Athens, Greece. The Hymettus mountain is to the west and southwest. The nearest Athens Metro subway station is at Doukissis Plakentias subway station. It serves access with the Attiki Odos, the main section was served to its east but by March 2004, it now has its own interchange with the Hymettus Ring with Lavriou Avenue.
The Attiki Odos runs to the northeast and east while the Hymettus rung runs slightly south of the centre. A tunnel is to its northwest. It is located south-east of GR-1/E75, east and south-east of Kifissia Avenue, west of Rafina, north-west of Sounio and Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport and about 12 kilometers north-east of downtown Athens. Another main street was a difficult road linking to GR-1.
The area were made up of farmlands. Farmlands used to dominate the land which included groves. In the 1980s and the 2000s, urban development and a few businesses replaced much of the farmlands. The remaining farmlands are around Glyka Nera. The Penteli mountains to the northeast. The higher parts of the mountains of Aegaleo and the Hymettus to the south can also be seen. The forests lie to the southwest and to the west and where one of Hymettus' forest can be seen. The Fourezi hill lies to the west.

Glyka Nera has schools, a few lyceums, a few gymnasia, banks, a post office and squares including Agia Triada square. Glyka Nera is the kind of town you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
