General information about Thessaloniki

Name

Thessaloniki was founded in 315 BC. from the Macedonian general Kassandros, who named her after his wife and half-sister of Alexander the Great, Thessaloniki and came from the unification of 26 settlements and areas around the Thermaicos Gulf.

Location

It is located in a very characteristic spot on the map. To the southwest it is bathed by Thermaicos Gulf while to the northwest it breathes from the forest of Kedrinos Lofos or Sheikh Sou. The city center stretches from the exhibition and the universities to the train station and is highly urbanized.

History

Thessaloniki is the largest and most populous city in Macedonia in northern Greece and the second largest in the country after the capital Athens.

After the conquest of the Macedonian kingdom by the Romans in 168 BC. Thessaloniki became a Roman possession knowing at the same time great development in every respect. It became an important trade crossroad, effectively connecting Europe with Asia via the Roman Egnatia Road.
 
From the 1st century AD the city became one of the early centers of Christianity as the Apostle Paul started here many of his preachings, laying the foundations for the new religion. During the Byzantine period the city experienced perhaps the greatest prosperity while growing in population, which made it the second most important city of the whole empire after Constantinople.
 
After its conquest by the Ottomans in 1432 it remained in the Ottoman Empire for about five centuries. From the middle of the 19th century, it was the most cosmopolitan and multicultural urbanized center of the Ottoman Empire.
 
Today Thessaloniki is a modern European city while maintaining its position as an important commercial and economic center connecting all Balkan countries. In 1997 it became the cultural capital of Europe and is one of the largest centers of university education in Southeastern Europe.

 

 

Sights

The tour of Thessaloniki can start from “Ladadika”, right next to the Port of the city. The “Ladadika” area with its listed buildings and cobbled streets becomes an attraction for those who want to see Thessaloniki as it was before the great fire of 1917, and to try unique traditional flavors in the taverns and restaurants housed there.

“Ladadika”, the Port as well as the area of ​“​Valaoritou Str.” are the main attraction for those who want to experience the intense nightlife in Thessaloniki, as they host some of the most famous bars, pubs and clubs in the city.

The religious character of Thessaloniki is evident in every corner of the city. Important monuments of the Byzantine period, temples and monasteries can be found throughout the center of Thessaloniki as well as in “Ano Poli”.

The Church of Agios Dimitrios, Agia Sofia, the Vlatadon monastery, Panagia Chalkeon, are just some of the religious monuments that testify to the rich religious tradition of Thessaloniki.

The most important attraction of Thessaloniki as well as its landmark, is undoubtedly the White Tower. It was built during the Turkish occupation and was then known as the Tower of the Lion or the Tower of Blood. The White Tower today functions as a museum for the history of the city. It is located very close to the Archaeological and Byzantine Museum, two of the most important museums in the city.

The central point of Thessaloniki is Aristotelous Square, crossed by four major highways (Nikis Avenue, Tsimiski, Egnatia and Agios Dimitrios).
