Four days to discover Thessaloniki

Four days to discover Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is a city of history and culture, the crossroads of the Balkans, a modern European metropolis and a contemporary arts hub.

It is a city whose past and present are visible in its urban identity, in the contradictions of the everyday life of its people, in the youthful fervour that comes from being host to thousands of students – a city that is the cosmopolitan seaside pearl of Northern Greece.

The city is an ideal place for strolling down streets and through neighbourhoods to monuments (from Ancient and Roman times to the Byzantine and contemporary eras), along the promenade to the White Tower, to eateries and clubs. It is also a starting point for travellers who want to experience magical Halkidiki, visit Mount Athos and discover the natural beauty of Macedonia.

Thessaloniki is also known as an ideal city for staging events and exhibitions. Over the years, Thessaloniki Book Fair has become an established event for the city’s residents as well as for thousands of visitors, Greek and foreign members of the book trade.
