Uncover the beauty of a unique museum and explore Thessaloniki’s landmark!
What to expect
Suppose you only have time for one museum during your visit to Thessaloniki. In that case, we suggest discovering the treasures of the”Museum of Byzantine Culture” – awarded in 2005 with the Council of Europe “Museum of Europe” honorary distinction.
Comprehend the details of daily life, religious and social customs, architecture, and art, along with the commercial and business activity through the centuries in the most significant city of the Byzantine
Empire behind Constantinople ( Istanbul ).
Enjoy a brief yet chilling stroll to Thessaloniki’s trademark – the White Tower- and learn about its exciting and turbulent history and the city’s evolution through the ages.
If some tastes are associated with Thessaloniki, then crispy bougatsa is one of them.
Filled with cheese or sweet cream with powdered sugar and cinnamon are the two most distinctive varieties, but spinach or minced meat are also popular – the choice is yours!
Start your day in Thessaloniki with traditional “Greek” coffee and learn about the evolution of coffee culture and its importance for locals.
And if you are more into espresso or cappuccino, you will be surprised by the variety in the local coffee places.
