Thessaloniki, in the Greek district of Central Macedonia, is the second largest city in the country. More importantly, it is a city with a continuous 3000-year history, preserving relics of its Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman past and of its formerly dominant Jewish population. Its Byzantine churches, in particular, are included in UNESCO's World Heritage list.


Thessaloniki is Greece's second major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre, and a major transportation hub for the rest of southeastern Europe; it’s commercial port is also of great importance for Greece and its southeast European hinterland. The city hosts an annual International Trade Fair, the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, and the largest bi-annual meeting of the Greek diaspora.


The history of Thessaloniki, like any European destination, is long and complex. It was founded in 315 BC, and the name of the city is taken after King Cassander’s wife, Thessalonica, sister of Alexander the Great. Thessaloniki was first a city based in the Kingdom of Macedon, and soon after its founding, a parliament was established in representation of the king. It became important city for trade within the Roman Empire, due to its location along trade routes connecting Europe with Asia. By the 1st century AD, a Jewish colony had established itself in Thessaloniki, and the city was also an important center in the Christian world. One of the most important early Christian missionaries, Paul of Tarsus, would play a key role in establishing the foundations of a Christian church in the city.


Thessaloniki Greece has many landmarks and museums that reflect its storied past. It is a wonderful point from which to access the great Greece Beaches of Halkidiki and other points of interest in the Greek Macedonian region.


Thessaloniki offers to visitors the opportunity to enjoy the historical heritage, so you can’t leave without seeing the places such as:

  • White Tower (Bloody Tower)
  • Aghia Sofia
  • Aghios Dimitrios Church
  • The Arch of Galerius
  • Rotunda
