Kalamaria is a charming suburb by the sea, to the east of the city centre, on the way to the airport.
Kalamaria is now a rapidly expanding suburb, mainly inhabited ny Greek refugees from Asia Minor (since the early 1920's).
Before that, this is how G.K. Moraitopoulos saw Kalamaria in 1880:
"When we come out through the Gate of Kalamaria, to the east of the city we observe that part of the land is flat and part hilly with wooded Hortiatis in the background. The plain is all green with gardens, a few field crops and many vineyards covering the land to the far end of Kara-burnu. Moreover we see many houses dispersed among the trees, in greater numbers mainly at two points, considered the outskirts of the city."
