Aristotelous Square, Thessaloniki

4.5
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.

  • Aristolos square is the heart of Thessaloniki, close to the bustling promenade and rhythmic town makes the rendezvous square with thousands of students who are jamming on the sunny area of the square wave ipsteri. It is recommended to pass on a couple of times square in Thessaloníki

  • Visited here whilst on a trip. Near the harbour. The white Castle is not far from here. And it's a nice area to walk around to see the sights and stop at a cafe along the water there. Please feel free to click on helpfull. Thanks
  • Lovely place. One of the "marks" of Thessaloniki. Usually full of life so if you're looking for something quiet, avoid it. I love the loud people, street food and stores.
  • A grand scale in the centre of Thessaloniki looking out towards the sea. At its peek this was the place to see and be seen, now a days it's a little bit worn, with the Greek economy and the situation it is in. But nonetheless it is a beautiful area with its own charm. Hopefully it will find a way to regain it's buzz.
  • The heart of Thessaloniki, a beautiful central square for a beautiful vity...most tourist start from there ( I for one also like to explore the narrow lovely streets around). Very populated and popular both during summer and winter. Lovely view of the sea and Mount Olympus (when the weather is good and most times it it).
  • Walk down Aristotelous Square to feel the whole vibe of the city of Thessaloniki. Beautiful people, vendors, street artists. Drink your coffee at a roof garden, one of the historical cafés or something more contemporary. Enjoy something sweet or salty. From the heat of summer to chilly winters the square is plain beautiful. Christmas decorations are the cherry on top.
