Polis Hammam

With respect to the tradition of authentic Turkish Hamam, we have created a space that travels in time but is adapted to all the amenities and comforts we ask today.To us body care and mental relaxation are always top priorities combined with cleanliness, professionalism and a sense of hospitality.

Please see to it.
1. It's so wrong having such a nice and expensive place without having taken care of the mould problem.
I couldn't see it, I'm shortsighted. The smell though was overwhelming. I swear i could still smell it on me for hours after i left.
I believe you should get professional help to fight it , because, mould, once it's in there, it's very very very hard to get rid of. I have no doubt that you wouldn't underestimate the health hazard for both clients and working staff.
2. Another thing that i found very displeasing was the fact that you've had arranged appointments for more than 2 persons , at the same time.
While there were only 2 marble beds for the bath and massage room, this ment that i had to lay on the large polygonal marble for a loooong time. At first, for the sweating fase and later on for the foam bath and massage. After a while, the marble was so hot, it made me feel dizzy and had to interrupt the foam bath and stand up at least 3-4 times in order to throw cold water on me and the marble, as well.
Not to mention that the experience of the massage was not the same for the right and left side of my body, because the masseur couldn't approach me at both sides.
In my opinion the large hot polygonal marble should not being used for the bath and massage. It's inconvinient not only for the client but for the masseur as well.

Museum of the Macedonian Struggle

The Musesum of the Macedonian Struggle is a historical museum that presents the local history and cultural identity of Macedonia, keeping alive the memory of the struggles of Hellenism and highlighting the role of ordinary people who left indelible traces in a diverse cultural heritage. With the tours one discovers a lesser known but ideologically charged chapter of the Greek and Balkan history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Museum is open to the public Monday-Friday 9:00-14:00 and Saturday 10:00-14:00.

The museum building was once the Greek Consulate in macedonia and was built in 1894 and designed by Ernst Ziller.The museum is set over 3 floors. It is excellently illustrated with period photographs and well described in English.In display cases are uniforms, guns, swords,medals and more. In the basement there are several excellent dioramas which are very realistic. On the top floor is a reconstruction of the Consul General's office and more display cabinets. There are also several film displays with English voice overs. To obtain an understanding of Thessaloniki and the struggle to obtain independence it is essential to visit this museum. The staff are very helpful and friendly and speak excellent English. Excellent.

Zeitenlik WWI Cemetery

Reviewed By MikeWells90 - Brighton and Hove, United Kingdom

The Salonika campaign is a very much overlooked part
of World War 1 in Great Britain, where it is overshadowed
by the events on the Western Front, Gallipoli and Palestine.
However, for the people of Serbia the campaign is of great
significance. The cemetery contains the graves of Serbian,
French, Italian, Russian and British allies. There are also
graves of Bulgarian POWs.
The main section of the cemetary is devoted to the Serbian
graves and not surprisingly most of the visitors to the cemetery
are from Serbia.
The British section is at the far end of the cemetery. Like
Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemeteries throughout
the world it is very attractively landscaped and well maintained.
The local staff are doing an excellent job. It is moving to walk
among the graves Reading the names, regiments and age of
the dead. It is notable that many of the ages are older than
might be expected. This is because a major cause of fatalities
was maleria, to which military support personnel were as much
at risk as front line troops.
If you are in Thessaloniki a visit is recommended.

Church of Agios Nikolaos Orphanos

Reviewed By Yiorgos B - Thessaloniki, Greece

The Church also served as the catholicon of a Byzantine monastery. It is built in the aisleless timber – roofed type with ambulatory, ending in the east with two chapels. Its exquisite mural decoration is one of most complete painting complexes preserved in Thessaloniki and is representative of Palaeologan art. Of the monastery complex, excluding the catholicon, only ruins of its entrance survive.

A beautiful and atmospheric ancient Church in the middle of the city. Certainly worth a visit. It is a pity there are no leaflets in the Church explaining the history and guiding the visitor around. Also a more prominent donations box would be a great idea.

Grekostar

Reviewed By Sergey T

Мы с супругой арендовали здесь авто в конце сентября 2017 г. Бронировали буквально за 5 дней до приезда, и, возможно, из-за этого машина нам досталась не самая лучшая.
Итак, это был Опель Астра, 1.4 литра, автоматическая коробка, полная страховка, пробег примерно 102 тыс по цене 222 евро за 6 дней. Глупо ожидать за такую цену новый автомобиль, тем более на автомате. Но вот эти 102 тысячи явно чувствовались - в процессе езды проявилась известная болячка этих машин о "недостатке охлажающей жидкости". Точнее, тогда я еще не знал что это болячка, и даже думал о том, чтобы заменить авто. После звонка на вайбер мне предложили заехать на заправку, и попросить проверить уровень, но также сказали, что машина была полностью обслужена. Пришлось лезть в интернет, где я прочитал, что после нескольких десятков тысяч километров в бачке прикипает датчик уровня, и требуется либо замена бачка, либо "просто его потрясти" ;). Вообщем, я убедился, что уровень нормальный, и в дальнейшем на эту ошибку просто не обращал внимание. Кроме этого, был раздолбан прикуриватель, не работал моторчик на заднем провом окне, и слегка напрягал медленный разгон и паузы в переключении передач. В итоге, мы проехали на это машине 1200 км, объехали всю Ситонию, съездили на Метеоры и вернулись в Салоники без всяких проблем.
Несмотря ни на что, я все же поставлю оценку 5, так как машина нас не подвела, и сотрудники пошли нам на встречу во многих вопросах - подогнали машину прямо к отелю, приняли обратно в аэропорту без дополнительных сборов, всегда были на связи.

Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki

Reviewed By Rebecca L

I really liked my visit! I am never sure if museums are worth it if they are not for free (for students), but I can recommend this one. I was happy that I decided to go.
The information was really interesting, I read almost everything.
If you are interested in the first settlement in Macedonia and the antiquity, you will have a good time!
I was probably not during a high time and so I felt like there were a lot of people guarding me and watching my steps, but I think if there would have been more people it would have been less uncomfortable :D
Oh! And the price is for everyone the same (they say, that was the reduced one an everyone will receive it). 4 Euros.

Crypt of Agios Demetrios

Reviewed By Mike P - Phoenix, Arizona

Our group of couples from the Prinsendam are on a self-guided shore excursion of Thessaloniki. The tourist info map and our offline phone gps easily led us to the Crypt of Agios Demetrios or Hagios Demetrios. Our information we collected prior to this cruise tells us this level of the ground gradually rose over the centuries resulting in this area acquiring the form of a crypt. According both to tradition and to archaeological findings, it was an old bathhouse, in which Demetrios was imprisoned. He was eventually martyred in 303 AD. During our visit the crypt appeared busier than the church above. We were grateful for the plaques that explain the inscriptions documenting the history of the church, together with figural sculptures of the Middle Byzantine period in one of the chambers. We also enjoyed the comfortable temperature of the crypt.

It is worth a visit, no matter how young (or old) you are, no matter how much you know about astronomy or physics. It offers very interesting shows and simulations, architecturally the building reminds of space age, and there is a cafe with a nice Terrace and view. The shop offers interesting ideas for presents for all ages. If you haven't visited another modern Planetarium don't miss it!

Ladadika District

Reviewed By Frederik M

There seems to be an endless array of clubs, bars and restaurants in this old town. You will not be bored. It gets crowded after midnight. I was jet lagged one night and decided to take a walk from 3-4am and I was astounded by the sheer crowds in the area. Most of the people tend to be college age.
