Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and the capital of the region of Central Macedonia. Located in the northern part of the country, it lies on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean Sea. With a population of over one million, it is an important cultural, economic, and educational hub in the region.

Thessaloniki was founded in 315 BC by King Cassander of Macedon, and was named after his wife, Thessalonike, the half-sister of Alexander the Great. It quickly grew to become an important trading port and center of culture, and was an important city during the Byzantine Empire. In 1430, Thessaloniki was conquered by the Ottoman Empire and its population increased significantly due to the influx of Sephardic Jews.

Thessaloniki is known for its rich cultural heritage, with many ancient monuments and buildings still standing today. The White Tower, a symbol of the city, was built in the 16th century by the Ottoman Empire and is now a popular tourist attraction. The city also has many museums, galleries, and theaters.

Thessaloniki is also known for its lively nightlife, with many bars, clubs, and restaurants. The city also hosts many festivals throughout the year, including the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, one of the most important film festivals in Europe.
