Thessaloniki, Greece, December 2011

When St. Paul visited this city around 52 A.D and wrote what is presumably the first book of the new testament (First Epistle to the Thessalonians) he would have never imagined what it would turned out to be.

Today this city of over 2,300 years of history of intense wars, powerful empires and cultural bloom,  the city is now full of student life and happy Hellenic atmosphere. From the Ancient Macedonia of Alexander, to the powerful Roman Empire, through the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Rule and the sad Greek Civil War, this city has seen it and experience it all.
