Thessaloniki (Greek: Θεσσαλονίκη, Selanik in Turkish and Солун, Solun (Солун) in South Slavic languages), also known as Thessalonica and Salonica, is the second-largest city in Greece and the capital of the region of Central Macedonia.

At about a million inhabitants, it is considered Greece's cultural capital, renowned for its festivals, events and vibrant cultural life in general and has recently been ranked by Lonely Planet as the world's fifth-best party city worldwide. More importantly, it is also a city with a continuous 3,000 year old history; preserving relics of its Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman past and of its formerly dominant Jewish population.
Many of its Byzantine churches, and a whole district of the city in particular, are included in UNESCO's World Heritage list.
