  • At the end of September I went to Thessaloniki, first half of my trip in Halkidiki. The waterfront is beautiful, the monument of Alexander the great's great, flanked by shields. Pity it was a very windy day and without sunshine. Still, it was the beginning of a journey interesting and full of experiences.

  • the statue of alexander who symbolizes the glory of greece. he spreaded the greek civilization up to india.  more »
  • Because I read in the comments that the statue is there for 70 years and various, I want to write two things that happened to know. The direction of bucephalus and Alexander head of c ' is to the East as his campaign. The statue was placed there by the junta in 1973. The statue came with the urging of lawyer Konstantinos Since that was then a partner in the Office of dictator George Papadopoulos. It is the work of sculptor Evangelos Moustakas. Is in bronze and its base is made of marble Melissohori, Thessaloniki. Personally many times doing the road driving I go my gaze to see why it's great. Pity that it is written with aerosols and pens at its base. Are also teenagers who hang around him make skate.

  • It's both a historical place/symbol as a place to chill and hangout with your company! You can grab a coffee from the many cafes which are max 1 min away and just relax!They're are many craved wooden planks around the place where you can sit and enjoy the atmosphere and the vibes of the people passing by! Also it's one of the best spots in Thessaloniki to watch the sunset because of it's available wide angle panorama view!
  • Beautiful statue of Alexander the Great at the port of Thessaloniki. Really realistic expressions and enormous in size that shows the importance and the glory of the person that represents. Around 6 meters high. A must see in Thessaloniki.
  • nice monument on the waterfront. lots of trash left from the night before.
  • The statue of the greek king from Macedonia, the most beloved greek person to ever live. Astonishing view.
  • One of the nicest places in the center of Thessaloniki by the sea.
