6 reviews of The White Tower

The White Tower of Thesalonika

Thesalonika is a city in northern Greece, touching the border with Macedonia. If you are doing a tour of the Balkans this is a city essential to visit. It has a special charm, washed by the Aegean Sea with a very Mediterranean feel. The White Tower was called the Red Tower in the time of Turkish occupation. Now that Greece reconquered their land tower painted white to symbolize peace. If you liked this corner and you want to continue traveling around the Balkans looking at my profile corners to make your path! And if you have any questions, realizamela. I'll gladly answer.

The White Tower

The white tower is the iconic monument of Thessaloniki, the largest city in northern Greece. It appears in all official documents, serves as the logo of the transportation network and the tourist office. It is located by the sea, on the pedestrian boardwalk that runs along the coast. Thessaloniki is a beach town and also a large industrial city but a trip to go and see the tower is not to be missed. There are always many people on the boardwalk, walking around, enjoying an ice cream, chatting. The building is beautiful, does not appear to be 500 years old but is not so white after all. It is rather gray due to pollution, which is a pity.
