Thessaloniki
A city with a stormy history and a cosmopolitan heart, Thessaloniki attracts visitors with its diverse culinary scene, dynamic nightlife, and youthful energy.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Ataturk Museum and Monastery of St. Dionysios in Olympus. Visiting Baseline Canyoning and Peraia Beach will get you outdoors. The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at Zeitenlik, head outdoors with Nea Paralia, steep yourself in history at Church of Agios Nikolaos Orphanos, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hagios Demetrios.
