Chalandri (Greek, Modern: Χαλάνδρι, Ancient/Katharevousa: Χαλάνδριον, older form Chalandrion and in Ancient Greek Flya (Φλύα)) or Halandri is a northern suburb in Athens, Greece, and a municipality of the Attica region. It is the birthplace of Euripides.
Chalandri is a suburb in Northern Athens, around 12 km from the centre; its location corresponds with one of the 10 ancient Dimoi (boroughs) of Athens, known as Flya (Greek: Φλύα). Until 40 years ago, it was a small village in Attica. With the rapid expansion of Athens and of this village during the 60s and 70s, the two eventually met, and the border with Athens is now indistinguishable. The area, nevertheless, remains relatively sparsely populated, and has one of the highest ratio of open green areas per citizen in Athens. Chalandri is also home to various embassies.
