What our students said about Thessaloniki

The city has stolen my heart. It is a very large and busy city, but I could live there as long as it is outside the center. I did not take advantage of the nightlife. I rarely or never do in NL. I felt safe there, but of course I have not been in the middle of the center at night or in probably also existing lesser neighborhoods. There were beggars (handicapped and elderly) and gypsies selling or begging. For a city of this size, there were extremely few. Public transport is cheap and frequent, but a taxi is only slightly more expensive, so that is my preference. You have to speak Greek, because drivers hardly speak anything. I did manage well and never once in the city felt that I was being dropped off. The museums in the city are worth a look, but important museums like the ethnographic are not open at the specified times. Unfortunately, the musical instrument museum is completely closed to the public. You can enjoy excellent food in Thessaloniki for a very reasonable price, somewhere between 6-20 euros including drinks. The shops are expensive. Buying clothes is not a good idea, the prices are excessively high. Supermarkets have a Dutch or higher price level.

Interesting city with international flair and appealing nightlife. No hustle and bustle and friendly people. I had my bike with me and was able to ride through the city without any problems, even in heavy traffic.
