Thessaloniki, HELLAS Photo by Vasilis Argiropoulos

I recently spent 3 days in Thessaloniki situated along the north of Greece. There are few places in the world where the evidence of colliding empires is so vivid as this particular city. With over 2,300 years of civilisation, this region has been home to ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans and finally modern Greeks. I hope that if you didn’t know much about Thessaloniki before reading this, by the end the post you’ll have a better feel for the unique fusion that defines this city.

The symbol of Thessaloniki. Even with the light from the setting sun on it, it doesn't seem to match its name. A tour guide said that pollution had changed its color.
