The Macedonia region
Thessaloniki has a long history. It was the capital of Macedonia, the empire of Alexander the Great. It was also the second city in the Byzantine empire, after Constantinople. There are numerous churches from this period that still remain, some dating back to the 4th century. Today Thessaloniki is Greece's second city with a population of 1.5 million.
It has been an important trading centre for more than 2000 years and a link between western and eastern Europe. Now, with its advantageous geographical situation , it is developing into one of the main trading centres of the eastern Mediterranean.
The Modern City
Thessaloniki is a lively seaside city. Its centre is directly by the seafront, which is lined with fashionable cafe-bars, many with lavish decor. From here, on a clear day, you can see Mount Olympus, home of the Gods, 80 km away across the Thermaic Gulf. It seems much closer. Greeks like Thessaloniki. It has big city flair, but compared to Athens a much more relaxed life-style. Most of the city's attractions are reachable by foot. It is safe to walk alone at night, but if you do take a taxi it rarely costs more than 3 or 4 Euros.
This, and it being a seaside city, attract a large number of students. At present there are more than 100.000 of them. Many decide to stay on after their studies and make the city their home.
There are a number of day excursions you may like to make, either by hired car or coach. Local travel agents offer a variety of destinations throughout the year. These are good value and convenient as they start from the city centre. Here are few of them.
Halkidiki During summer months you can visit the blue-flag beaches of Halkidiki, some of the best in Greece. There are long sandy beaches, shady coves, something for every taste. Everyone will give you a tip about their favorite beach.
Vergina and Pella Two important archeological sites about one hour's drive to the west of Thessaloniki. Pella was the birthplace of Alexander the Great. Amongst the extensive ruins of the ancient city are some superlative mosaics. In Vergina you can see the exquisite golden treasures that were found in the royal tombs.
Meteora A few hours drive to the southwest of the city are the spectacular monastaries of Meteora. Perched on huge pinnicles of rock, they have been used by monks for the past 600 years. You can visit some of them by climbing long stone stairways.
Mount Athos Mount Athos, the third finger of the Halkidiki peninsular has been home to an orthodox monastic community for the last 1000 years. Women are not allowed and men only with a special licence, but a boat trip around the peninsular gives you an impression of the monastries in their unspoilt surroundings.
Lake Prespes Lake Prespes lies on the remote northern border of Greece amongst beautiful mountain scenery. It is a paradise for the naturalist. 260 species of bird have been recorded, many of them on the list of endangered species. Pelicans, including the rare dalmation pelican, fly around like large aeroplanes.
