As a city named after Alexander the Great’s sister and a cultural center for thousands of years, it is natural for Thessaloniki to have a diverse and rich history and culture. It is one of the first Christian countries in Europe, and it has been part of the Roman, Byzantium, and Ottoman empires. Thus, Thessaloniki has many things to see, do and experience.
While walking around the city, you will notice the multicultural character of Thessaloniki. The Palace, Rotonda, and the remains of the Triumphal Arch will take you back to the Roman era.
The former home of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, which is a museum devoted to the founder of the modern Republic of Turkey, will tell you of Greece’s history during the Ottoman empire. Generally, the city is like a vast museum to visit Byzantine churches, fortresses, and museums. But of course, more importantly, you should see the city’s landmark, the White Tower!
Apart from all the fantastic historical and cultural attractions, Thessaloniki has many unique cafes and traditional taverns with delicious food and a lot more.
Furthermore, Thessaloniki is definitely one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Europe. The seaside promenade is the longest one in Europe and offers stunning views of the Aegean Sea.
Alongside the promenade, you can also take a carriage ride at sunset for a perfect romantic experience.
