Thessaloniki (also Thessalonica or Salonika) is one of the largest cities in Greece . It is located on the coast of the Aegean Sea, in the north-eastern part of Greece .

Important Greek centre

Thessaloniki the second largest Greek port and the capital and the administrative centre of the Greek region of Macedonia ; a small part of Macedonia is a part of Bulgaria and a large part, previously included in Yugoslavia, is now an independent state.

History

In the ancient times of the Roman Empire, Thessaloniki was situated on one of the most important trade routes from the Adriatic Sea to the central part of the Byzantine Empire. Under the rule of Philip II of Macedon the region of Thessaloniki was very important as it was one of the central points of the greatly developing empire of world significance. Philip II of Macedon gained large territories in today's Greece and his son, Alexander the Great, established a powerful empire.

Cradle of Christianity

Thessaloniki was one of the first Christian centres in Europe. Constantine and Method were sent to disseminate Christianity just from this locality. In 1492, approximately 20, 000 Spanish Jews moved to the city of Thessaloniki, and they greatly contributed to cultural development of the city and the region. In 1917, Thessaloniki was seriously damaged by disastrous fire that lasted three days. The city was then built from the scratch.

Monuments

Many monuments were damaged by fire but a lot of them were restored, as well as some of ancient monuments, such as St. Sophia Church. This church was built in Thessaloniki in the 6th century on site previously occupied by an older church building. St. Sophia Church is a robust building, nearly rectangular. Among other things, precious mosaics from the 9th century were preserved. The other localities worth seeing in the city of Thessaloniki are: the remnants of Byzantine fortifications, St. Demetrius Church, remnants of the theatre from the Roman period, excavations of a Roman palace, a rotunda and the Thessaloniki castle. In honour of Alexander the Great, his statue was erected on Thessaloniki square. Thessaloniki is known as a temporary residence of Aristotle, famous philosopher, who was a teacher to Alexander the Great in order to help him to become the ruler of Macedonia.
