Hotels Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece. It was founded by King Kassander of Macedon in 315 BC and was named after his wife Thessalonike who was a half sister of Alexander the Great. Architecture in Thessaloniki peaked while the city was part of the Byzantine Empire. The White Tower a 16th Century edifice, is considered to be the symbol of the city. A major part of the ornate Arch and Tomb of Galerius (Known as Kamara) still stands today. What the city is most known for among today’s Greeks, however, is its boisterous nightlife and sense of style. Thessaloniki is a dedicated student city and a plethora of eateries, night bars and cafés of all styles and types have sprung up to cater to its chic inhabitants. This center of culture also boasts many museums, cinemas, concerts and special events. Sophisticated shopping and omnipresent Greek sweets also set the city apart.
