It is considered to be the cultural capital of Greece, the 5th- best party city in the world ( right after Belgrade, Montreal, Buenos Aires and Dubai ) and one of the most charming cities wordwide, probably thanks to its perfect Eastern-Western balance!
Easy to fall in love with, Thessaloniki offers all kinds of excitement whether you’re just sipping coffee on the seaside, or having a drink on the top of the “Old Town”, having your taste buds blown tasting some local delicassy in Ladadika or crazy partying all night – and these are just the things you can’t not do while in Thessaloniki…wait till we get to the sophisticated side of it!
But, let’s just take half a step back and truly understand the colors of the city. Thessaloniki is the second largest city – and the co capital – of Greece. It is a modern metropolis built near the sea, bearing the marks of its stormy history, as well as its cosmopolitan character, both of which impart a special beauty and charm to the city. Throughout history, it has always been a crossroad of civilizations – a place where the East meets the West, where great cultures and religions have been mixed together – thus earning the title of ” The city of diverse history and hospital people”.
Gastronomy, events, world-class heritage sites and
shopping centres are some of the things that visitors can – and, might I add, MUST – indulge in.
So, now we can take that step forward again and see in more detail why you should visit Thessaloniki and – most importantly – what not to miss while you’re there!
