About Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki, the capital of the Prefecture of Central Macedonia, is the second largest city in Greece, after Athens. In fact, the town is honorarily called national co-capital, for its continuous historical and administrative importance through ages. The history of the town started in ancient times and due to its strategic location, it played an important economic and political role in the wider region of the Balkans.

The town was founded in 315 BC by King Cassander on the site of a former settlement named Therma. He named it after his wife Thessaloniki, sister of Alexander the Great.

In Roman times, Thessaloniki was an important trade centre to transport goods between the East and the West. Its economic expansion continued all through the Byzantine Times and it became one of the most important centres of the Empire. Many public buildings and churches were built that period all over the town. Many of these early Christian and Byzantine churches survive till today and they have been declared as World Heritage Monuments by Unesco.

Today, Thessaloniki is a modern town that welcomes millions of visitors every year. As it serves as a transportation hub for northern Greece, it has a railway system that connects the town to Turkey and the Balkans, a busy port and an international airport. With a population of about 1.100,000 people, Thessaloniki is famous for its ancient monuments, the vivid nightlife, and its shopping options.
The trademark of Thessaloniki is the White Tower, right in the waterfront. It was built in the 15th century and along with its history, it has been used as a fort, a prison, a meteorology laboratory and today it houses the Museum of the History of the town.

Thessaloniki is also well-known for the International Trade Fair that takes place every September and for the International Film Festival in autumn. Such cultural events and many others give the town a glamorous style.
