Chalandri, Halandri or sometimes Khalandri (Greek, Modern: Χαλάνδρι, Ancient/Katharevousa: Χαλάνδριον), older forms, Chalandrion, Halandrion, Khalandrion and in Ancient Greek Flia (Φλύα) is a northern suburb in Athens, Greece. It is the birthplace of Euripides.

Halandri or Chalandri is a suburb in Northern Athens, around 10 km from the centre. The place where it lies corresponds to one of the 10 ancient Dimoi (burroughs) of Athens, called Fili (Φυλη in Greek). Until 40 years ago however it was just a small village in Attica. With the rapid expansion of Athens and of this village during the 60s and 70s they eventually met. The border between Athens is now indistinguishable, although Halandri remains relatively sparsely populated and has one of the highest ratio of open green areas for every citizen in Athens.
