They think it as the "coolest" city in Greece, with cafe shops, nightlife, very close beaches etc. For me is a broken city unfortunately. Although it has very rich past including Greeks, Ottomans, Slaves (Serbian, Bulgarian), Turks, Jewish and Armenians. This is the White Tower from the port. Its the city's symbol without being Greek made. Dont be fooled by the green background its because the telephoto lens (300 X 1,6). There is lack of green in this city. Now they are rebuilding the seafront but its mostly contemporary architecture with lot of cement. The nice things is that because of the rich history you can find in the center and in the old city many many little treasures (sites) and museums. Moreover there are many things to discover around the city! Thessaloniki or Salonica!
