Aristotelous Square, Thessaloniki

4.4
The city's main plaza, Aristotelous Square is well known for the important political speeches and rallies that took place on-site over the years. The plaza was constructed in 1918 following the destruction of much of Thessaloniki during the Great Fire of 1917. However, when you visit, many of the buildings you'll see are from the 1950s. Head to the bustling square to get a coffee from one of the many cafes and people-watch, or watch one of the cultural events that take place here often. Check online to see if any special festivals or markets line up with your schedule.

  • Perhaps the most beautiful square in Greece! Huge, with a view of the immense Thermaikos Gulf, with wonderful architecture and blooming!

  • Lovely wide boulevard - to take a break, relax, chill! Eat a snack, grab a coffee, read a book, check your map and listen to buskers. A lovely spot to catch a sunbeam too!  more »

  • Big square with pleasant architecture right in the middle of the city. I liked it just before sunset when the light changes. The coffee houses and restaurants all around the square are good (but not excellent).
  • In the heart of the city centre! A square that could have a strong and creative character! I think that many many things could be done to make this square the best in Europe but for now it lucks of character and vision
