  • How pity such monuments to stay closed dirty and asyntirita drying. Did we get there to see padlocks on the doors. Unacceptable.

  • A time (until the end of the years ' 60) was a bathroom, divided into two parts: one for men, another for women. Now hosts occasional temporary exhibitions. Visited on 9 June.

  • Built in 1444, the Bey Hamam is the oldest of the Baths in Thessaloniki and one of the most important buildings that incorporate Ottoman architecture. Like many other unique historic buildings, you will find downtown North of aristotelous square, opposite the Panagia Chalkeon. An architectural gem in downtown Hamams were built at the behest of Murad b, while the larger baths erected after the city's conquest by the Ottomans in 1430 Had separate areas for men and women while they are considered unique for its spectacular ornamental compositions and the intricate designs emerge today inside them. The internal layout is characterized by several rooms which are interconnected by more than one entries having a slightly labyrinthine layout. Apart from the smaller rooms that occupy the biggest part of the baths, there are also some older which is characterized for its octagonal form and the arches that surround them. The spaces destined for men are the ones with the highest comfort and luxury while the whole beauty of space give and the openings on the roof of Dome decorated allowing entrance daylighting. Similar subsequent buildings that date back to the 16th century and can be found in other places, such as the "Pazar Hammam" in the area of "Loyloydadikwn" near aristotelous square , the "Yeni Hamam ' double in the Church of St. Demetrius. The reason why there were numerous such buildings was the importance that were auctioned off by the Ottomans in them. In addition to their crucial role in level of hygiene and cleanliness the Hammam had a symbolic, almost spiritual dimension as to the workings of catharsis. For women were the major social outlet and opportunity for socialisation. Special impression causes the fact that "Bey Hamam" remained active until the 1960s under the name "baths of Paradise". Today the room is used for various exhibitions, performances and cultural events. Don't miss the opportunity for a short visit. The venue is easily accessible being located in one of the most central locations giving you the opportunity to combine your visit with another landmark or monument! Adjacent to the site of the baths there is a wonderful coffee suitable for a relaxing break. From the upper floor you can see the roofs and cupolas of the monument.
