Pangrati or Pagrati (Greek: Παγκράτι) is a neighborhood in the Municipality of Athens, Greece. It is bordered by the Kolonaki (Κολωνάκι) neighborhood to the north, the Kaisariani (Καισαριανή) Municipality to the east, the Vyronas (Βύρωνας) Municipality to the south, and the Mets (Μετς) neighborhood to the west. It is not to be confused as a separate suburb, as it is part of the Athens city proper. However, it is frequently mistaken as such, possibly because of it bordering the actual suburbs of Vyronas and Kaisariani. One of the most important landmarks of Pangrati is the Panathinaiko Stadium that hosted the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The First Cemetery of Athens, the official cemetery for the city of Athens, lies within Pangrati.
Pangrati has numerous squares: Plastira, Pangratiou ("of Pangrati"), Messolongiou, Proskopon, Rizari, Profitis Ilias, Deliolani, Plyta and Varnava. Pangratiou Square is home to the Pangratiou Park, together with a major street named Spirou Merkouri, which runs into Konstandinou Ave and up towards Evangelismos Metro Station. Profitis Ilias Square features the Church of the Prophet Elijah (Προφήτης Ηλίας), and the Imitou street starts, which runs through the entire span of Pangrati starting from Kaisariani; around Varnava Square is the area behind the Kallimarmaro Stadium hosting restaurants like the classy "Spondi" (awarded 2 Michelin stars) and various tavernas, while Plastira Square serves as a stop for all three trolley networks and local bus routes.
The Arcadia Center, a non-profit cultural institution, is also located in Pangrati. The center operates study-abroad programs through the College of Global Studies at Arcadia University, a university located within the United States.
Pangrati is served by buses #054, 203, 204, 209, 732 and trolleys #2,4 and 11. Recent information released by the Attiko Metro has suggested that there will be a future metro station on the border of Pangrati and Kaisariani on Imitou Street, to be named Pangrati/Kaisariani, on the proposed Orange Line (Line #4).
