City of Athens to open air-conditioned spaces in view of heat wave

The City of Athens is opening public air-conditioned spaces to citizens due to a heat wave expected to hit the capital on Wednesday and Thursday. Several public spaces will be available to citizens in the areas of Aghios Pavlos, Koukaki, Neos Kosmos, Kato Petralona and Ambelokipi on both days.

Authorities warned city dwellers on Tuesday to restrict outdoor activities and avoid sun exposure during the two-day heat wave.
