Thessaloniki is a city which knows how to live and love; which appreciates fine food, good company and indeed anything of quality; which boasts a wealth of beautiful experiences and which embraces a diversity of people and revels in its multi-culturalism.
And now during the festive season, with its streets bedecked and glittering with decorations, its beauty is only heightened more. The White Tower, the Old City (Ano Poli), Aristotelous Square, the bars and cafes on Valaoritou St, the fashionable hangouts of Ladadika, the arcades and the markets. All this is the perfect enticement to go outside and just wander around, to soak up the unique atmosphere; and, in getting caught up in the whole leisurely vibe, to make new friends and discover new places in which to while away the hours. This is the gift that Thessaloniki offers unconditionally to residents and visitors alike. It brightens and livens up your days and nights. Because this is Thessaloniki. The city with the Big Heart!
And now you can give something of your own back. Join our ‘Thessaloniki. A Big Heart!’ campaign and upload your own story from this most beloved city of the north.

So, what are you waiting for?
