Greece Is Thessaloniki 2019-2020
Thessaloniki may well be Europe's best city-break destination. That's a bold claim perhaps, but one that is well supported. Compact, yet with an open and relaxed vibe – thanks in part to its famous long waterfront - Thessaloniki is a captivating medley of cultural experiences, historical sites, whimsical events, and innovative gastronomy. With tons to do both in and around the city; hotels, cafés, bars and restaurants that just get better and better; and a particularly welcoming local population, it is no surprise that a recent consumer survey conducted on behalf of the Thessaloniki Hotels Association found very high levels of customer satisfaction.
Over the 144 pages of the latest print issue of Greece Is, we introduce you to the latest additions to the city's café & restaurant scene, and guide you to the best shopping, exhibitions, festivals and events taking place in the city in the coming weeks and months. As the Thessaloniki International Film Festival prepares to get underway, this year celebrating its 60th edition, the festival's artistic director Orestis Andreadakis talks about the institution today beloved by international film buffs and city residents alike. Meanwhile, renowned residents offer their unique perspectives of Thessaloniki, helping you get under the skin of this multi-faceted city. And we present our extensive guide to Mount Olympus – an unbeatable destination for anyone longing to get back to nature, walk the paths of the ancient gods, discover authentic villages, and enjoy a touch of adrenaline.
