The climate of Thessaloniki (Greece)
Thessaloniki or Saloniki is one of the largest cities in Greece. It is located in the province of Central-Macedonia. The city is situated on the Gulf of Thessaloniki which lies in the Aegean Sea. The Paleo Christian and Byzantine monuments are Unesco world heritage sites. The city has several more beautiful buildings such as Lefkos Pyrgos, the Arch of Galerius, Agios Dimitrios and the Hagia Sofia. Thessaloniki has a warm Mediterranean climate which is slightly colder than in the more southerly located cities. Winters are cold and wet; this makes the city unsuitable as a winter sun destination. Summers are pleasantly warm. During the warmest days of the year temperatures exceed 30 degrees Celsius. During these days the best place to stay is in the vicinity of the sea. An ever blowing sea breeze offers some cooling.
