Thessaloniki is a city rich in history and very interesting. Founded in 316 b.c. by Cassander and named after his wife, Thessaloniki is the second-largest city (the biggest one is Athens) and a major crossroads between Europe and the Middle East.
Throughout its history, Thessaloniki has been characterized by vitality and the continuous growth of the city. The greatest prosperity was experienced during the Byzantine era. However, the influences it received during the Roman period were also significant, leaving behind important monuments to visit. The famous White Tower, the castles, the Arch of Galerius, Byzantine churches are just some of the famous attractions of Thessaloniki.
The city not only has its history. With many major international festivals, international exhibitions, concerts, and many more cultural events, the city continues to produce culture. Do not forget to visit the main cultural and economic event of the city, Thessaloniki International Fair.
Like all large cities, Thessaloniki has a vibrant nightlife and welcomes you to different entertainment bars, clubs, and taverns that are open until the early morning hours. So there is intense nightlife for all tastes, scattered in all parts of the city.
So at this crossroads of culture and civilization between West and East, gastronomy has passed to another level. Thessaloniki is a gastronomic paradise for gourmets and its inhabitants have reduced the physical need for food to art and science at the same time. The aromas are many, the flavors even more and their combinations are endless. Recipes political, Pontic, Mediterranean, and many more are waiting for you to try them in one of the countless restaurants that are everywhere in the city. Restaurants overlooking the entire city or in front of the sea, hidden boxes, and traditional taverns as well as fast food with northern Helladic portions, are all here, for all tastes and all budgets. Of course, we have to make a special mention of the famous “bougatsa” of Thessaloniki, the one that for the locals is a daily habit and the rest of the world a special delicacy that impresses. So Thessaloniki is a city that has it all to a superlative degree and once you visit it once, you will want to go, again and again, it is no coincidence that it is the most erotic city in Greece.
