Pavlos Dimitropoulos, project development manager, said us:

“Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece, but still keeps the atmosphere of a small city despite its important role in the Greek market and the Balkans. Thessaloniki has a long history and has always being a multicultural city because of its strategic location. A very dynamic percentage of the city’s atmosphere derives from the university of Thessaloniki, which is the second largest in Greece; the city remains alive at night with lots of entertainment, cultural & artistic festivals. One of the biggest problems is traffic, which is highly congested. The situation in the whole country is dramatic, the crisis is very bad so both economy and job market are not very flourishing. The city’s economy is focused also on tourism, both for business or pleasure. On one side Thessaloniki is only a hour away from Mount Olympus, Dion, Verginna, Mount Athos. It combines the beauty of Halkidiki, a major holiday destination and Pieria. It is also strong on religious tourism both Christian Orthodox & Jewish. The fact that Thessaloniki is only two hours away from FYROM, Bulgaria and Albania helped the city to become the European center for the development of the Balkans”.
