Visiting Greece /2 Thessaloniki Waterfront and Harbour

July 1, 2011

These few pictures are taken on the newly refurbished waterfront of Thessaloniki that ends with the brick building of the city Concert Hall. From the opposite side you can see the new extension of the Concert Hall  in light grey and the cranes of the harbour on the background of the city landscape.

The historical harbour has been partially converted into leisure area next to the city centre, hosting among others the film museum, the museum of photography, a contemporary art museum, restaurants  and bars in the old warehouses, beside the port authority.

Altogether it makes a very lively relationship between the city and the sea, based on leisure and cultural activities, looking for a balance between buildings and uses inherited from the past and some fashionable landscaping accents.
