Kolonaki is a wealthy and upmarket district. As one of the capital's leading shopping areas, it includes a number of high-end boutiques from young adult to casual fashion to prestigious haute couture from Greek and international designers. One of its main shopping streets, Voukourestiou street, is now known for its jewelry. Museums and galleries also abound in Kolonaki. The Benaki Museum, inside a preserved neoclassical manor house, and the Goulandris Museum are two of the finest private collections in the country. Two smaller museums to be found in Kolonaki are the Museum of the History of Greek Costume and the Theater Museum, both highly specialized in their respective areas. A walk across the street from Vassilissis Sophias Avenue are the Byzantine museum and the War Museum of Athens. The Lycabettus Funicular, a funicular railway, links Kolonaki to the summit of Lycabettus hill. Kolonaki also hosts two metro stations, Evengelismos and Megaro Mousikis.
The main square (with the small column) is surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Most locals come here to have a cup of coffee or go shopping. Outdoor seating on pedestrian walks is typical, creating a lively atmosphere at night. People watching and gossip abounds, while you feel like a part of the elite. Former Prime Ministers and many other politicians call Kolonaki their home.
