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.

  • 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

  • Big tourist site and also a big local hangout. Goes from the waterfront up into the city. Lots of stores and casual food options. Nice place to stroll around or relax. Great for people watching, a must see when in Thessaloniki.
  • the historic town center of Thessaloniki a beautiful and very nice preserve square filled with flowers and benches. one of the best places in the city to rest and have your coffee
  • Such amazing city in Greece. Although it is a very busy area it is still, over all, a very peaceful and enjoyable area. The caffes, ice cream shops, restaurants, and bars around the area are so enjoyable during the day as they are a night. The architecture is elegant with a taste of Greek history when you walk by its churches and ancient ruins. I can't believe I waited this long to visit Greece. I cannot wait to come back to Thessaloniki.
  • Aristotle square offers beautiful views of Thessaloniki. You can see the ocean in one side and the busy city on the other. It's very peaceful place..we loved it!
  • This square is the most beautiful attraction in thessaloniki that you must visit. It is full with people and restaurants that have have a nice view in the thermaikos sea. Also you should consider we you are going there for a drink or food they are a bit pricey , especially those that are closer to the beach
