THESSALONIKI - Nymph of the North - Culture Capital of Greece

The city of Thessaloniki was founded in 315 BCE by Cassander of Macedon. An important metropolis by the Roman period, Thessaloniki was the second largest and wealthiest city of the Byzantine Empire. It was occupied by the Ottomans in 1430, and liberated from the Ottoman Empire by modern Greece on 8 November 1912.

White Tower of Thessaloniki - part of the old Fortress that came to eventually be used as a place for torturing Greeks during the Ottoman Turk occupation. Now it stands as a reminder of the struggle and sacrifices made by the Greeks so that Macedonia can once again be free.
