    Nothing out of the ordinary really

More about Hotel Queen Olga

Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki

by dimilag

In December 1986 the Municipal Art Gallery of Thessaloniki moved into its new
quarters in a building located at 162 Queen Olga Street, at the corner of 25th
of St. Built in 1905 by architect Xenophon Paionidis, and now the property of the
Municipality, it is fine example of the eclectic style of architecture that flourished
in Thessaloniki, especially in the then suburban district known as "the Towers"
or "the Villas", at the turn of the century. The older residents of the city know it
as the "Villa Mordoch", from the name of the family who occupied it from
1930 - 1940. The building is distinctive for its rich mixture of elements drawn
from the Neo-classical, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau styles, and
which vary from one facade to the next, thus accentuating the pluralism of the
structure. Also of interest is the decorative paintwork of the interior - well preserved
in certain rooms - as well as the woodcarving.

"Rotonda"

Rotonda is a Roman building, made rather as a mausoleum or temple of Zeus, early 4th century AD. On the next century was turned to Christian church and functioned as Cathedral of Thessaloniki for more than 1100 years.
On 1590 was turned to mosque by the Turks and after the liberation of Thessaloniki (1912) was returned to christian church. Today functions as church for the University ceremonies and as a museum.

The earthquake of 1978 damaged the monument and long restoration works were necessary, concerning both the static strength and the decoration of the building. Some other earthquake on the 9th century had already beaten heavily the church.

In the church, that today is dedicated to St George, there are parts of mosaics of the 4th century and paintings of the 9th century.

Nice Hotel

by bogomil

We will visiting Thessaloniki in April for 3 days. Can you recommend me a hotel near to the seaside?

RE: Nice Hotel

by asvetlana

There are several very nice hotels in the centre with seaview - the Makedonia Palace, Electra, Mediterranean Palance, but they are all rather expensive. I can recommend City hotel, also in the center and just 100 m away from the waterfront. See www.filoxenia.com for other ideas.
Have you been to Thessaloniki before? If not, you might want to know that the seaside is a busy and noisy area with a rather foul smell often coming from the sea. The sea is very polluted and of course there is no beach there.
If you want to be close to the sea, you may chose to stay in Perea - that's an area 30-35 km from the centre with an OK beach and plenty of cafes and tavernas at the waterfront.

Mersi ;) Thanks.
I just found a great hotel- Orestias Kastorias http://www.okhotel.gr/. I think we will use it for our 3 day stay.

That's above Egnatia and about 10 min walk from the waterfront. A very nice location though and central enough for sightseeing. Definitely better than the paralia. Have a great time.

Actually there is not any hotel located in the old seaside (which is near the centre of the city) but there are some other hotels near the new seaside but away from the centre of the city:
Makedonia Palace hotel( expensive )
Queen Olga hotel ( distant view to the sea )

So, if you want a hotel located in the centre of the city, near the seaside
then choose:
Luxemburg hotel ( The nearest to the seaside )
Electra Palace hotel
City hotel
Mediterannean Palace hotel ( The port is located between the hotel and the sea )
Tourist hotel ( cheap but fine )

All these hotels are located not by the seaside but only a block away.

So If I were you I would choose the Luxemburg hotel:

But, if you prefer something cheaper then choose Tourist hotel which is cheap and perfect.


But the perfect choice would be this hotel that is still under construction and opens this spring. If it opens before you come in Thessaloniki then book there:

Re: the mansion of Central office for the organisation of "Thessaloniki, cultural capital of Europe,

by magdaki

Hi,
if I understand correctly, you are trying to get info on the building that accomodated the 1997 cultural capital organisation.
it is on 105 Vassilisis Olgas Street (Queen Olga street). Nowadays it hosts the "Organismos Rythmistikou Thessalonikis", I don't know how this translates correctly, it is an organization for the planning of the wider Thessaloniki area. If I am not mistaken, I believe that for many years it was the building for the Red Cross of Thessaloniki. I am afraid I don't have any pictures of it. I made a fast google search, but couldn't come up with anything.
good luck in your search.

Sorry I didn t see this answer here, the building at present the base of the Organization of Planning and Environmental Protection of Thess@!
Greetings to both!
