Visitors to Thessaloniki will be able to enjoy one of its historical gems up close and personal for the first time in seven years, as of next week.

The northern city’s 4th-century Galerian Complex is being opened to visitors by the archaeological service.

In the heart of the city, the award-winning site is over 9,000 square meters and was a regular haunt for emperors passing through on their way to New Rome-Constantinople.

The site acts as a focal point for the center of the historic city and won a 2008 award from the EU for the high standard of conservation which went into preserving it.

The Galerian Complex will be open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., except Mondays from Jan. 30.
