Thermaikos' Bride. The Co-Ruling City. A Sparkling Town.
These are some of the many names given throughout time to Thessaloniki, during her 23-century presence. A welcoming land for three of the world's major religions and metropolis to three empires, Greece's current co-capital was founded by Kassandros, in a privileged position which boosted its financial growth, but at the same time attracted a large number of besiegers and potential conquerors.
Its amphitheater-shaped placement that faces Thermaikos' Gulf includes a series of cultural and architectural landmarks that stand as witnesses for the city's significance as an major urban center for the wider area.
