Historically one of Europe’s oldest and most multi-ethnic cities, Thessaloniki is the second largest city in the country. It is a modern, bustling hub that has been dubbed by the New York Times as Greece’s cultural capital. If you’ve got time to spare, Thessaloniki is well worth a visit for a city break or on your way to or fram Halkidiki..
Uunlike anywhere else in the country. Thessaloniki is both a sprawling urban centre and a cultural melting pot, where dreams, ideas, visions and trends percolate in an alternative, avant-garde scene. Its history is written upon everything that surrounds you: the White Tower, Nikis Avenue, Aristotelous Square, Mitropoleos Avenue, Tsimiski Avenue, the Ladadika district, Modiano Market, Bit Bazaar and the Old City. Just as you’ll enjoy the cosmoplitan atmosphere in the cafes and bars, you’ll adore the choice of traditional tavernas and gourmet restaurants.
