Meet the 13 theme parks, which are recently created at the waterfront of Thessaloniki, and decorate this part of the city in the best way.
The Theme Parks at the Waterfront of Thessaloniki
Beyond the plethora of attractions, the waterfront has always been the focal point in Thessaloniki. What can be better than walking in the long and wide promenade by the Thermaic Gulf gazing at the Aegean Sea and the blue sky? Recently, this beautiful part of the city has become even more attractive.
The waterfront was renovated and 13 theme parks were gradually built. Now, both the permanent residents and the visitors have 13 more reasons for walking in the promenade.
The 13 theme parks at Thessaloniki’s waterfront make a difference
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the waterfront in Thessaloniki and view its thematic parks. The classic way is to walk from the port towards the Music Hall. If you are not a fan of walking, you can rent a bike, book a horse-carriage, or schedule a sailing trip with BabaSails Yachting.
The theme parks are located a bit farther from the downtown district and act as the backdrop of the waterfront where people can rest, engage in various activities, and even learn more about Thessaloniki and its history.
The idea was to create theme parks by using natural elements, like wood, greenery, water, etc. Today, Thessaloniki boasts of 13 beautiful theme parks that make its waterfront even more interesting.
- The Garden of Alexander, dominated by the sculpture of Alexander the Great.
- The Garden of the Evening Sun, a romantic environment where you can see the sunset.
