If you want to have a tour at a different time, please don't hesitate to ask me! Also please inform me in advance in what language you would like the tour.

We all know from school days about ancient Greece - Homer, Aristotle, Alexander the Great etc. We heard about the Byzantium Empire.
But what do we know about Greece after that? During the Ottoman Empire? Almost nothing, however, it is more than 4 centuries of history!
Thessaloniki in this regard is a unique city! It gives us a rare opportunity to discover what happened, because compared to Athens, Thessaloniki didn't decline during the Ottoman period. It was the city that combined east and west, diverse communities, three religions (Islam, Judaism and Christianity), thriving economy and was a witness to a volatile history of the region.
We will move​ through history as we move through​ the city - from 29 March 1430 - the day of invasion to 1943.

From the time I studied Art History in the UK, I became very passionate about art, architecture and what it can tell us about societies and history.

I work as a documentary director/editor and for the last two years, I have been living in Thessaloniki, studying Greek language and research the city's truly unique history for my work. It is always exciting for me to discover hidden places, amazing stories and unusual twists in the ​city's history. So I would love to share the story of Thessaloniki with you!

Donde estarás

We'll start high above, with a great view of the whole city, at the ancient walls. From there we will make our way through the old narrow streets of 'Άνω Πόλη' to the survived mosque, Alatza Imaret. We'll visit churches that worked during the Ottomans, including the one where sultan held a service after the invasion. Also, we'll see synagogue and Jewish monument, 'Frankish' quarter and buildings of the late Ottoman​, early Greek periods.

This is an experience that I would recommend to do on your first days in the city, Olga is very knowledgeable, we got to know a lot about the history of the city during the last 4 centuries, how people used to live, how did the city look like and how did this history shaped the city and the surrounding cities today. It was an experience of a great value.

In 3 hours Olga took so from the old town to the sea front relating the history of the city during the Ottoman period up to the second world war with a mixture of fact and anecdotes that kept us engaged and interested all the way. Highly recommend a great tour
