What's Thessaloniki Like?

Thessaloniki is a city filled with historical significance. From the historical conquests of Alexander the Great to the Byzantine Era to the horrors of the Third Reich, Thessaloniki will charm anyone who visits. For the globetrotting enthusiast, Thessaloniki has a number of points of interest. The White Tower, for example, has had an interesting and controversial history. Originally designed as a guard tower for the walls of the city when it was ceded to Venice in 1430, the Ottomans used it as an army garrison and prison for dissidents when they took over the city. Many brutal executions took place in the tower during that four-hundred-year period, giving it the nickname "The Red Tower" or "The Blood Tower". In 1912, the tower was symbolically whitewashed, giving it the name that it has now. The Church of Saint Demetrius, on the other hand, is an ancient church that has existed for almost two centuries. Visitors to the church can get an idea of the craftsmanship and art from the motifs that are still evident within the magnificent building. The Thessaloniki War Museum and the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki are other points of interest. For those who want a more modern bent as well, there is also a water park. The Zejtinlik Military Cemetery is a popular tourist destination that has many of the veterans of World War I buried there as well.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Thessaloniki

The Greeks tend to be exceptionally friendly and curious, almost to the point of being intrusive. Greeks do not have many reservations about personal space either, so expect it to be invaded from time to time. Of course, this may not be true to the same extent in places that cater more to tourists, however, it is still evident to some degree. If you are traveling to Thessaloniki from Macedonia, it is important to note that there is a one-hour time difference between the tow regions. Make sure you are aware of this so that you don't miss your train! When going to historic landmarks such as the Greek Hagia Sophia Church, make sure that you are aware that some of the local beggars run a scam practice where they will hold out their hand in an attempt to make you think that it is some kind of entrance fee. Finally, Thessaloniki has a vibrant night life, with many clubs, bars, and restaurants open late. Be aware that many peddlers will offer counterfeit DVDs to tourists while eating out in restaurants. Venere hopes that you enjoy one of our Thessaloniki Hotels and that you enjoy your stay, whether you stay in Thassaloniki or travel around Greece!
