A place where shopping becomes more an experience and not only an activity.
Without any doubt Thessaloniki is one of the most significant shopping cities in the whole region. The city center includes many shops and shopping centers that of a vast variety of products and can cover the needs of every single customer.
Among the most well-known streets which are famous for the quality but also for the high prices are Tsimiski and Mitropoleos. There someone can find exclusive brands, international labels, and products signed by world-famous designers. In other streets, parallel to Tsimiski, like Ermou and Egnatia there are shops with less expensive clothes and shoes, while in Navarinou square the existing shops offer more alternative clothing choices.
The shopping in Thessaloniki center can never be without a "character" and that means it should be more an experience than just an activity. The great number of fast foods, restaurants, tavernas, and cafeterias make everyone to have some "re-charging" breaks between visiting shops and shopping centers. The pace of shopping is slower here, exactly as the pace of everyday life comparing to Athens, the capital of Greece for example.
