    The site has so many remarkable istorikastoicheia and yet failing money has too much rubbish and ryparografimata. With some "tidying up" could become one of the most loved and beautiful meeting places of the young in age and mood of people.

    Galerius was complex is located in the heart of Thessaloniki. It was built on straight from the North to the South and includes buildings such as the Rotunda, the victory arch, octagonal structure, and Hippodrome. The area was surrounded by buildings that were a combination of typical Roman architecture and monumental religious or like a Basilica that was to consume server.. The northern part of the complex was in aginte, connecting Rome to Constantinople, one of the important trade routes of the Roman Atrium was surrounded by magnificent colonnades, while mosaic floor decorated, statues and mhobrimaanico halls of power and prosperity. The Octagon is located west side near the Basilica and was perhaps the most sumptuous building of the complex. Perhaps it was the Emperor's throne room and it was beautifully designed and several meters high and is the yum of architectural and design elements of the control. However, when the Palace of Galerius complex extend over an area of 150.000 sqm today include the Rotunda and parallel streets the Church of Hagia Sophia, with the Roman Forum they were at the center of Thessaloniki for Roman, the partially completed rebuilding efforts, and in a few places like "the Rainbow". Almost all parts of the complex are open to the public fancy and given us a chance to see the restored site of the Atrium, the puzzles and the marble floors and some wonderful mosaics. The luxurious complex in downtown offers infinite combinations of where to go and what to see! The White Tower and Nikis Avenue are just minutes away. A short walk north of the old town, is the Byzantine walls and teriginio Tower.
