Aristotelous Square, Thessaloniki

(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Use our Thessaloniki trip itinerary planner to add Aristotelous Square and other attractions to your Thessaloniki vacation plans.

  • Τι να πει κανείς για την Αριστοτέλους... Τέλειο μέρος για όλες τις ώρες και ένα από τα μεγαλύτερα σημεία συγκέντρωσης της πόλης. Οι καφετέριες δεν λένε πολλά μιας και βρίσκεις καλύτερο και φθηνότερο καφέ αλλού αλλά για βόλτα είναι τοπ.
  • Practically the center of the city. A lot of things to do around. Every kind of shop, every kind of cafe - bar - restaurant. Characteristic architecture of the buildings around but in general it is just an open area with asphalt. Just walk through.
  • Amazing bars, cafes and restaurants. Great cocktails and food!
  • Nice views of the sea and the hilly Thessaloniki but crowded. Also the immigrants selling fake watches and other souvenirs tend to be annoying.
  • Very remarkable place, definitely a must visit in Solun
