Great Turnout at Thessaloniki’s New Waterfront Opening



Nea_Paralia_ThesDespite the wintry scene in Thessaloniki Greece, many have seized the opportunity to enjoy the newly refurbished waterfront and repaved Nikis avenue. The coastal project was completed over the course of the last two and a half years.

Since yesterday, residents and visitors have had the opportunity to enjoy walking along the esplanade, which is about five kilometers in length, from the Concert Hall to the port. This new waterfront includes 12 thematic parks and has certainly been appreciated by all those who have visited.

The newest thematic parks include the Sculpture Garden, the Mediterranean Garden, the Garden of Phocas, the Garden of the Seasons, the Garden of Sand, the Garden of the Afternoon Sun and the Garden of Alexander. Some landscape work remains to be finished in the Garden of the Seasons and the Garden of Alexander.

Special events were organized to celebrate the unveiling of the revamped waterfront, which contributed to the festive atmosphere.
