General

Thessaloniki has many stories to tell and the first starts from the very moment of her founding, since the new town took its name from Thessaloniki, sister of Alexander the Great and daughter of King Philip II of Macedonia. Thessaloniki developed very quickly due to her outstanding geographical position in one of the major ports. Thessaloniki is known as the financial and commercial center of Macedonia and the Balkan Peninsula, advantages that have been reserved for 2300 years. Irrefutable evidence of this evolution is the numerous monuments surrounding the city. Open and visitable, they live with the people and tell stories from different ages, cultures and religions. Hear its history to understand what all these wonderful monuments mean, before walking across the city and feeling this uniqueness that makes Thessalonians so proud of their past.
