Between January and August of this year, the over-night visitors to Greece’s second largest city reached an all-time high of 2.59 million. During the same period, new flight connections to the city were added, and old buildings in the center were converted into modern boutique hotels.
Why the increasing interest in Thessaloniki? Aside from having a vibrant history and must-visit sights, this is a city that’s ever changing, developing, and reinventing itself. Visitors come to experience the renowned nightlife and the world class gastronomy, to hang out at the happening Pier A of the port and the Ladadika district, and to discover its contemporary museums.
Over the 143 pages of the latest print issue of Greece Is Thessaloniki, we introduce you to the patchwork of historic and modern influences that make Thessaloniki so special. Read about the residents of old Thessaloniki, meet the city’s innovators, and get the best tips from its tour guides and influencers. We present our 72-hour guide to the city, which takes you from the seafront to the charming alleys of Ano Poli, and an indispenisble agenda, featuring art shows, festivals and entertainment. All this and much more.
