Thessaloniki Courses

The City of Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece, a classical city full of Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine monuments. It was founded by Cassander and named after the sister of Alexander the Great. Over the long centuries of its history, today’s capital of Northern Greece has been distinguished as a foundation of the Hellenistic world and as the twin capital of Byzantium after Constantinople. Thessaloniki has been called a city of imagination, a melting-pot of populations and peoples, a city of myths, with roots stretching back into pre-history, a cosmopolitan center close to the beautiful resorts of Halkidiki.
