I didn't know the city was so beautiful! I feel like people don't give Thessaloniki enough credit tbh

This is a gorgeous city. Thank you for sharing the video! People usually go to Athens over Thessaloniki, but they shouldn't. This is a great place!
 

About Vlatadon Monastery in Thessaloniki

This monastery was a royal grant from Byzantine Empress Anna Palaiogos. On the land where the monastery was built, according to legend, the Apostle Paul preached to the Thessalonians in 51 A.D, during his second mission. This is what the monastery looks like, totally worth visiting.

You must visit the Arch of Galerius in Thessaloniki!

This is one of the most important landmarks in Thessaloniki. Galerius was aRoman Emperor who build the arch built as part of a road that would connect his palace to the main road that stretched through the city. The arch was made to instill a sense of majesty and wonder on those who passed through it. It served a reminder of the presence of the Roman Empire. Today the arch still stands and is one of those that you absolutely must visit while you’re here. This is what the beautiful arch looks like
