Thessaloniki is a beautiful city that lies on the shore of the Thermaic Gulf. Its seafront has always been one of the most often frequented places, both by tourists and locals. On a clear day, its magnificent view of the sea and the mountain of Gods, Olympus, will absolutely enchant you.
Ano Poli (Upper Town)
On the north of Thessaloniki lies the Upper or Old Town, the only part of the city that survived the big fire of 1917. The Upper Town will make you feel as if time stood still; you’ll immediately be stricken by its unique style, so different from that of the rest of Thessaloniki that will travel you back to the city’s Byzantine past.
Vasilissis Olgas st. - Queen Olgas st
A number of very important historic buildings some of which have marked Thessaloniki’s history through a number of critical events are gathered in Queen Olgas st. Wealthy Greek, Jew, Turk and European merchants and politicians constructed most of these masterpieces.
Kalamaria (Nea Krini)
Nea Krini is a different, perhaps more elegant proposal located on the eastern part of the city, approximately 25 minutes away from Thessaloniki's center. Some well-known and appreciated restaurants and fish-taverns can be found in the area, most of them located along the coastal avenue “Aretsou”.
The wonderful parks of nea paralia in Thessaloniki
Twelve beautiful thematic parks along with hundreds of new trees and countless other interventions turned the old Waterfront area of Thessaloniki into a unique, modern urban space.
