" Thessaloniki! A city surrounded by sea and great beaches! That is the best thing about living here! Go for a walk by the sea, from Nikis Avenue until the Concert Hall and you will forget everything!"(Photography by FilmNoirProjects.com and Thalia Karra)

Eat & Drink
Thessaloniki is famous for its food and coffee lovers people living here! Around Aristotelous Square, a classic meeting point, there are tons of places to start with a coffee, beautiful tavernas and restaurants and great bars to finish your day.
I also like Sofouli street, as a closer place to where we live. A beautiful road with places for eating. I am a fan of Manitari and Halaro . But my big love, and a definite try for anyone who visits the city is the pastry triangles. Crispy fyllo and creamy filling! Oh! I love that one! Elenidis triangles are my favorite!
See Something Special
Visit OTE Tower, a 70m tall building, in the city center. The spinning coffee house up there is a great way to enjoy the view of the city.
While walking by the seaside get your photo taken in front of the “Umbrellas”. A 13m tall sculpture, created by George Zoggolopoulos.
Pick Up A Souvenir
Pick up classic souvenir, like a tiny White Tower or a copy of an ancient greek statue. Or even a coffee cup saying “Thessaloniki”. All that is too classic! Walk the city. Visit the churches, the roman and ancient greek ruins. The castles and bring home with you the taste and smell, the feeling of the city. And the taste from pastry triangles and frappe coffee!
