Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece

Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece and the largest and most populated city of Macedonia. On an equal footing with Athens, and having once served as a co-reigning city, Thessaloniki is unofficially considered the co-capital city of Greece!
The "co-capital" of Greece is a transportation hub for Northern Greece and the Balkan Peninsula, facing the Thermaic Gulf. Located in a close distance to Chalkidiki and Pieria, Thessaloniki offers easy access to unique beaches, as well as to the ski resorts centers of Northern Greece.
Thessaloniki has always been a multinational, multicultural and open city, featuring elements from different eras. The Greeks, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Ottomans, the Slavs, and the Jews have all left their mark, creating one of the most beautiful cities in the whole region.
Thessaloniki has always been a popular tourist destination for the neighboring (Greek and non-Greek) areas. In recent years, however, the reduction in property cost and the significant investments made in the city’s infrastructure, have turned Thessaloniki to a centerpiece for both residential and commercial real estate investment.

Property investment interest by individuals, companies and hedge funds
Thessaloniki has become a centerpiece for investments from Russia, Turkey, the Middle East, Israel, but also the neighboring Balkan countries (Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia). Investors are most interested in the properties of the city center and the areas facing the sea.
