Meeting Point: Kamara
Every day, the youth of Thessaloniki and visitors to the city gather at Kamara. The Arch of Galerius, as it is more properly called, forms part of the Galerian Palace complex along with the nearby Rotunda, a structure reminiscent of Rome's Pantheon. The ancient Via Egnatia, which connected Thessaloniki with the Adriatic Sea and Constantinople, ran directly under this arch, as did trams in the early 20th century. Today, the pedestrian crossing at the Kamara traffic lights is one of the busiest in the city, used by hundreds of people at a time
to reach the other side of Egnatia Street.
