历史景点
“White Tower is the main attraction of Thessaloniki. It is a fortification work of the 15th century Ottoman (probably built between 1450-70). It is now considered a characteristic monument of Thessaloniki and is what has been saved by the demolished Ottoman fortification of the city. The present form of the tower replaced a Byzantine fortification of the 12th century, to be used as a garrison of the Yanitsaron and as a prison of death. Today it operates as a museum and is one of the most famous building-symbols of cities in Greece. It has 6 floors, 34 meters high and 70 meters perimeter. The museum of White tower provides many historical facts about Thessaloniki and its ticket costs 4 euro. Maps: goo.gl/maps/dYX1viw7XLF2 Street: Leoforos Nikis”

“Near the walls of the Acropolis, at Ano Poli, is the stauropegic monastery of Vlatadon. The stauropegic monasteries, depending directly on the Ecumenical Patriarchate, are called thus since according to tradition, during their foundation they placed a cross in the area ("stauros” 'cross', and pegnumi 'to affirm"). Its location may provide visitors with a wonderful panoramic view, however when it was founded it was considered a “strategic” location, given the fact that there was the ability to reconnaissance the wider area and the sea. It is dedicated to the Transfiguration of Christ, while initially to Christ Pantocrator. According to a marble inscription, it was founded by the brothers Dorotheos and Markos Blatis. Dorotheos was a student of Agios Gregory Palamas, leader of the hesychasm movement in the 14th century, and was the Metropolitan of Thessaloniki in the years 1371-1379. From the initial Byzantine monastery only the catholicon survives today, while the rest of the buildings are modern (1968) and belong to the Patriarchal Institute of Patristic Studies. In the period of the Turkish Occupation, the monastery was known as “Cavus Monastir”, a name that was probable related to the head of the Turkish garrison. This garrison protected the monastery, since the monks helped sultan Murad II to capture the city, suggesting to him to interrupt its water supply. Another view relates the name with an official of the sultan Murad II, who as a commander of Thessaloniki repaired in 1431 the nearby tower of the entrance of Heptapyrgion. Architecturally, the catholicon of the monastery belongs to a rare form of the cross-on-square church, whose dome is not supported on columns, but on two pillars on the west and on the walls of altar area on the east. On the three sides it is surrounded by a portico, which ends on the east to two chapels. There were repairs and additions in the 19th and the 20th century. The wall paintings date from 1360-1380. To this date leads the representation of Agios Gregory Palamas, who died in 1359. This is the oldest representation of the saint, immediately after they declared him a saint. The dome depicts the Pantocrator, while at other spots in the church wall paintings survive with scenes from the Dodekaorton, figures of ascetics, monks and military saints, the Baptism of Christ and fragments from his miracles. The wood-carved screen probably dates from the 17th century. Unique relics are kept at the sacristy of the Monastery. Among them, sacred vessels, manuscripts and icons, dating from the 12th to the 19th century.  ”

“Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was born in this house in Apostolou Pavlou St in 1881. In 1935 the Thessaloniki city council decided to give the building to the Turkish State which afterwards converted it into a museum dedicated to the life and achievements of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. ”

“A ten minute downhill walk from Trigonio Tower will bring you to the most famous meeting point of Thessaloniki: Kamara, the Arch of Galerius. Close your eyes and travel back to the 4th century AD when Thessaloniki was the Mecca of the Roman Empire. With the wide square spreading in front of you, imagine the old hippodrome and Galerius’ Palace on its side. Nowadays, ruins of this glorious era can be seen in Navarinou Square, a neighborhood popular with students. And all just within a five-minute walking distance from the University campus, the trade fair, the Archeological and Byzantine Museums, not to mention the White Tower. This is where history meets everyday life. Highly recommended for young travelers, Erasmus students and museum-hopping lovers!”
