Thessaloniki Cathedral, Macedonia Central Macedonia plays a strategic geographic position, open to all of Europe. On the shores of the Aegean Sea, the region is also home to the second capital of Greece, Thessaloniki. The first commercial port of south east Europe, Thessaloniki benefits from a very rich historic heritage, inherited from the Byzantine period. European youth capital in 2014, Thessaloniki is above all known for its dynamism and cultural influence through the International Exhibition or the International Film Festival among others. Property in Macedonia is in addition relatively inexpensive. So, will you opt for an apartment with courtyard in the old town of Thessaloniki? Or maybe a villa with sea views on the Chalkidiki Peninsula?
