Sights: Byzantine/Ottoman Times

A lot of early Christian churches remain from Thessaloniki’s byzantinische time, which collection of church treasures and fine mosaics should cause any art passionate’s joy. In 1988, Thessaloniki became part of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, due to these churches; and Agios Dimitrios is, according to some sources, Greece’s biggest church.

The Ottomans, too, left clear traces in Thessaloniki, in spite of the destruction of many mosques – or their conversion to churches – when the city became Greek. So, oriental flair can still be smelled when walking on the Besesteni, a big coverd market. Once it was here that gold and clothes were sold. You can also visit the Hamam, the Turkish baths.
