Why Thessaloniki?

Why Thessaloniki?

Thessaloniki is now a modern European city in Northern Greece, situated in the Gulf of Thermaikos of the Aegean Sea. It is the second largest city in Greece and the capital of the region of Central Macedonia. Throughout its fascinating and continuous history of 2500 years, the city welcomed and accommodated a significant number of refugees and migrants; Jewish, Armenian, Turkish, Slavic and Greek populations have co-existed for many years, creating a vibrant metropolis.
