I love visiting churches; it's a peaceful respite when you're rushing as a tourist. This was no exception, the massive size was inspiring and when you take the time to grasp the meaning of the relics and art, you can't help but be inspired.

Deep antiquity. Don't miss cupola full of Saint Dimetrios and his gear on the side. Take a photo of the fully outfitted luxurious modern throne, carved hardwood chairs. The "crypt" underneath the sanctuary floor is the hair-raising trip back to the time of dungeons built from the pieces of ancient architecture. If you only have time to visit one artifact... More

centrally located and of big size, this church is on the must-do in Thessaloniki. be aware of the opening hours: as all active churches, it is open in the morning until 1 PM, then closes for a long lunch break, and reopens at 6 PM for some two hours. So plan the visit better in the morning.

Thie is the church of my heart of my childhood. It is one of the most beautiful churches of our town and a symbol for the citizens of Thessaloniki. I highly recommend a visit to the vysantine church of Agios Dimitrios during your stay.

The pastor was a very friendly man. He described all the icons and frescoes. We were there for a traditional Greek Wedding ceremony and it was amazing. The ceremony is a little more on the noisier side than any Catholic sermon, but it was very interesting.

Make sure you visit the underground crypt, which is kept a secret by the archaeologists and the church-goers alike...

We were told that this was the Basilica of St. Dimitrios; and that this building was devoted to the patron saint of the of the city. If you are interested in Byzantine religious architecture, this is a must see.

This Church from the fourht century is in reasonable walking distance, about 20 minutes from the city center- Aristotelous square. The walk is pleasant. the streets are crowded and shops are plenty so you wouldn' t be bored, and you will always find something to eat if you are suddenly hungry. This historic church was burnt in 1917 fire of... More
