THESSALONIKI

Food is Culture

Salonica or Thessaloniki itself never doubted its own Cultural identity and its millennia of existence, it stands there since 315BC founded by Cassander, who named it after his wife and Alexander΄s the Great sister. Ιt was chosen as the co-reigning city of the Byzantine Empire alongside Constantinople.

Τo prove just that there are several Paleochristian monuments, constituting a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Historically one of Europe΄s oldest and most multiethnic cities, widely considered as the cultural capital of Greece, is truly unique in the sense that it intricately marries its thousands-year-old multicultural heritage and the architectural marvels with the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Sephardic Jew history.

The cutting-edge art performances and cinematic avant-garde, recently launched cultural sites and creative projects, Arts and Entertainment hubs all-in-one, numerous monuments, fifteen listed at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the 5km meandering waterfront, make Thessaloniki a "must-see destination".

Geographically, due to its privileged location of land-proximity to both Europe and the East, travelling to Thessaloniki has always been a no-brainer.
