Thessaloniki


Greece’s second city has style, with plenty of fashionable shops and salons and a 1-million-strong population fleshed out by a big university (80,000-plus students). Thessaloniki boasts great nightlife during those long months when more famous Greek destinations are deep in hibernation, from arty cafes to Latin bars; from discos pumping out house music to salacious bouzoukia (clubs featuring twangy, Eastern-flavoured Greek folk-pop). That’s plenty to keep you occupied after you’ve traversed the city’s sublime Byzantine churches, museums and scattered ruins. It’s not cheap, but no Greek city save Athens compares.

Thessaloniki Sights and Monuments



Church of Agios Dimitrios

Thessaloniki's enormous, 5th-century Church of Agios Dimitrios , is named in honour of the city's patron saint. A Roman soldier, Dimitrios was killed around 303 on the site (then a Roman bath), on the command of Galerius, infamous for persecuting Christians. The martyrdom site is now an eerie underground crypt, which you can visit during the day or during the special Friday-night service. In 1980, the saint's relics were returned from Italy, and now lie in an elaborate silver reliquary inside.The Ottomans made Agios Dimitrios a mosque and plastered the walls. After they were kicked out, the plaster was removed, revealing Thessaloniki's finest church mosaics. While the 1917 fire was very damaging, five 8th-century mosaics have survived; look for them on either side of the altar.

Church of Agia Sofia

The 8th-century Church of Agia Sofia , a not-so-small miniature of its namesake in İstanbul, occupies Plateia Agias Sofias south of Egnatia. The dome has a striking mosaic of the Ascension of Christ.

Also see the restored, 5th-century Church of the Panagia Ahiropiitos, which has an early basilica form; some mosaics and frescoes remain. The name, meaning 'made without hands', refers to the miraculous 12th-century appearance of an icon of the Virgin.

Monastery of Vlatadon

Up near the walls, the Monastery of Vlatadon has a leafy, secluded location and a small museum. A gift shop selling icons is inside.

Church of Nikolaos Orfanos

Also in the Kastra is the 4th-century Church of Nikolaos Orfanos , which has superb frescoes.

Church of Osios David

Just down from the Monastary of Vlatadon is the little 5th-century Church of Osios David , allegedly built to commemorate the secret baptism of Galerius' daughter, Theodora, while father was away. It contains well-preserved mosaics and rare 12th-century frescoes depicting the baptism of Christ.



Archaeological Museum


The Archaeological Museum has finds from the prehistoric period through to ancient Macedonian and Hellenistic times. The most famous exhibit, the Gold of Macedon, presents precious objects (6th- to 2nd-century BC) from the royal tombs and other central Macedonian excavation sites. The craftsmanship is phenomenal; delicate filigree wreaths, pins for fastening dresses, and grave masks from Sindos are among the best.The Derveni Crater (330-320 BC), a vast, ornate Hellenistic vase of bronze and tin used initially for mixing wine and water and later as a funerary urn, has intricate relief carvings illustrating the life of Dionysus, with mythical figures, animals, vines and ivy branches. The Derveni Treasure contains a papyrus piece (250-320 BC) likely to be Greece's oldest.The ground floor exhibit, Pre-Historic Thessaloniki, boasts the Petralona Hoard - axes and chisels in an urn, abandoned by the artisan, in the Petralona Cave north of Halkidiki. Other finds include daggers, pottery and tools from mound tombs DATING from the Neolithic period to the late Bronze Age.

Thessaloniki's Archaeological Museum is one of the city's big attractions. The museum houses the foremost collection of Macedonian artefacts including the treasures from the tomb of King Philip II of Macedon, which was discovered at Vergina in 1977.

White Tower

The history of Thessaloniki's most famous landmark, the pacific White Tower , is actually bathed in blood. In 1826, Ottoman Sultan Mahmud II ordered here the massacre of janissaries (elite troops made up of forcibly Islamicised Christian boys) deemed disloyal. After Greeks captured the city in 1913, the 'bloody tower' was whitewashed to expunge the dark memories.

The whitewash has long been removed, though the name stuck. At time of writing, the tower's small Byzantine Museum was about to get a new permanent exhibit; it's up a wide circular stairway, where stands a small café offering impressive views of the city and sea

Dating from the 15th century, the White Tower is Thessaloniki's major landmark and it contains a museum with exhibits that include scupture, mosaics and pottery.

Palace of Galerius

Very close to one another, from Plateia Navarinou north across Egnatia, stand three major monuments associated with the early-4th century Roman emperor Galerius. The ruined Palace of Galerius sprawls east-west across the square. You can descend into it, or just peer over the handrail. Pieces of floor mosaic, columns and a few walls survive.

Across Egnatia is the Arch of Galerius, featuring sculpted soldiers in combat; it was erected in 303 AD to celebrate the emperor's victories over the Persians in 297.

Galerius Rotunda

Just north of the Arch of Galerius is the Galerius Rotunda. Galerius built this hulking brick structure as his future mausoleum, though he never used it, dying in retirement in what is now Serbia instead. Constantine the Great made the Rotunda Thessaloniki's first church (Agiou Giorgou); the Ottomans would transform it into a mosque (the minaret's been mostly restored). There are surviving frescoes inside the enormous building.

Roman Agora

The Roman Agora lies north of Plateia Aristotelous, across Egnatia on upper Plateia Dikastirion. Commercial activity began in the 3rd century BC and peaked under the Romans, when the area was buzzing with public affairs, services and shops. A helpful, English-language board explains the layout of the remains, which include clustered shop walls and a few mosaic floor remnants.

Museum of the Macedonian Struggle

The story of how heroic Greek revolutionaries wrested Macedonia from the clutches of both Turks and Bulgars is graphically told at the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle . Housed in the former Greek consulate to the Ottoman Empire, this museum has hard-to-find maps, old firearms, photos, uniforms and more.
Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki

The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki traces Jewish history in Thessaloniki from 140 BC to the Spanish arrivals in 1492 and until WWII through well-presented displays and photos. The museum houses remains from Thessaloniki's large Jewish cemetery, vandalised in 1942 by the Nazis.

Thessaloniki Museum of Photography

The Thessaloniki Museum of Photography , located in a cool former warehouse on the port, displays historical and contemporary Greek photography, plus dynamic temporary exhibitions. The small café overlooks the water.

Museum of Ancient Greek & Byzantine Instruments

The Museum of Ancient Greek & Byzantine Instruments is an unusual, three-floor museum that displays instruments from antiquity to the 19th century. Excellent multi-lingual museum catalogues are available.



Atatürk's House

Atatürk's House , located within the Turkish Consulate grounds, is where the dashing Mustafa Kemal was born in 1881. The museum honours modern Turkey's founder, and has original furnishings and memorabilia.



Yeni Hamam

Yeni Hamam is a grand 17th-century Ottoman structure with great acoustics; it's now used as a sophisticated concert hall. If something's on, it's well worth seeing a show there.

Bey Hamam

Bey Hamam , also known as Paradeisos Baths, is Thessaloniki's oldest Turkish bath, dating from 1444. This large and labyrinthine structure is now used for art shows
