Thessaloniki, the capital of Macedonia Vibrant.
Bustling Thessaloniki is the second larger city of Greece, but prides itself on being first for culture.It dates back to shortly after the time of Alexander the Great. Archaeologists have uncovered a Greek agora and a Roman forum with an adjacent odeum. As a port city and a hub of trade routes, Thessaloniki once rivalled Byzantium, and churches from the Byzantine period have earned the modern city the status of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The people who visit Thessaloniki get a feeling that the city never sleeps… except from the summer period (especially the 2nd and 3rd week of August) when Thessalonians choose to visit the nearby beaches and the Greek Islands. A lot of neighborhoods in the city also give the impression of traveling back in time. It is a city which is keeping many ‘flavors’ from its past in combination with fashionable and artistic influences from its present. A city that make everyone feel romantic.
