Greece’s second largest city is often cast in Athens’ shadow, especially when it comes to politics, business and the economy. That’s certainly not the case, however, with its rich culture, delicious cuisine, and intense nightlife, which rival that of Athens.
Situated on the Gulf of Thermaïkos, Thessaloniki is a gorgeous destination bearing the marks both of its turbulent history and its cosmopolitan personality. The capital of Macedonia can seduce anyone with its special charm and its colorful architecture, not to mention its aromas, a product of the local gastronomic landscape.
When the sun sets and the lights go on all over the ancient city, illuminating the stunningly beautiful historical buildings and the waterfront, the evening in Thessaloniki becomes magical, which you can see for yourself in the following video produced by the “Up Drones” team.
