Car Rental in Thessaloniki

General Information about Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki (also known as Salonika or Saloniki) is the second largest city in Greece and the administrative center of the two northern regions of the country. The city is visibly different from Athens: it is closer to the Balkan Europeanism and modernity than to the Middle East.

The city was founded in 316 - 315 BC by the King of Macedonia Kassandros, who gave the city the name of his fiancee, sister of Alexander the Great. The city owes its modern appearance largely to a terrible fire, which in 1917 almost completely destroyed the old labyrinth of alleys and the whole historic Jewish district together with 32 synagogues, and deprived of Home nearly half of the 140 thousand of the city’s residents.

The International Airport of Thessaloniki is the "Macedonia Airport" (SKG -SaloniKa Greece-), formerly known as Mikra Airport and is located about 15 km (9.3 miles) southeast of the city centre of Thessaloniki at Mikra, close to the suburb of Thermaikos. Start your holidays with a rental car waiting for you in Thessaloniki airport and explore this beautiful city at your leisure!

On one hand, because of its location, the city is a perfect base for exploring the peninsula of Chalkidiki. On the other hand, it may be a good start to an adventure of exploring mainland Greece, giving a foretaste of its magnificent monuments. The bustling and full of life city of Thessaloniki contrasts with the region of Macedonia with its wonderful wildlife, still, crystal clear lakes and mountains of Pindos.

Long central avenues running parallel to the sea shore intersect the charming alleys and streets with densely planted shady trees. The city of Thessaloniki is one of the largest cultural and tourist centers in Greece - with the vigorous administrative and university center. It is a place of important international trade fairs and world-famous center of live avant-garde music and entertainment. Take a chance and get to know Thessaloniki with your rental car from Economy Car Rentals.

Thessaloniki is also known for its white tower, a monument and museum on the waterfront of the city. In its eventful history, the tower was part of the city wall, then became a turkish prison and place of executions known as the Bloody Tower. Then it was remodelled and its exterior was whitewashed after Greece gained control of the city in 1912. It has been adopted as the symbol of the city.

The old part of Thessaloniki can be seen today in the Kastra area, which is surrounded by walls and situated on a hill. Here you will find Turkish buildings and alleys, and a little younger Greek houses in art deco style, which managed to avoid the building concepts of the 1950s. Those who love Byzantine monuments will find here plenty of churches built from Roman times to the 15th century. Thanks to them, today we can observe changes in the styles of the Orthodox church architecture, which took place in architecture and art of the region.
