Thessaloniki Holidays Overview

 

Thessaloniki is sometimes known as Salonica to English speakers, and is located at the head of the Gulf of Thessaloniki. It is the capital of the Greek region of Macedonia, and is a lively, prosperous town, with a varied ethnic mix, a major university, and a progressive music and arts scene.
 
The city is primarily a commercial and industrial centre, rather than a tourist resort, and it hosts an annual international trade fair. However, there is still plenty for visitors to see including the Turkish walled upper town, Ottoman buildings, Islamic monuments, modern Greek architecture, and a variety of excellent museums.
 
Overall Thessaloniki has a modern appearance, due largely to an enormous fire in 1917 which totally destroyed much of the traditional Ottoman city, including the Jewish quarter. The city was rebuilt in an Art Deco style using the guidance of Ernest Hebrard. His plan was a grid system of wide avenues running parallel to the sea front, with shady cross streets planted with numerous trees.
