In Greek terms, Thessaloniki is a young city. For the rest of the world, with almost 1,800 years of history, the second largest city in Greece and the capital of the nation's largest region of Macedonia has a lot to offer to its visitors. Founded by Macedonian king Cassander and named after his wife Thessalonike, the city is rich with Roman, Byzantine, Jewish and Ottoman monuments.
