What not to miss at Open House Thessaloniki 2022
The Student I was when it reached my ears, by word of mouth (like most things worthwhile in Thessaloniki), the city’s architectural celebration, during which, for a weekend, public and private buildings open their doors free of charge to the public. . Next week (26-27/11), the residents and municipalities of the city can do sixty-seven buildings for free for ten years, choosing between three outdoor routes in historical architectural monuments, where they will be guided by young and young volunteers/- three of the Open House. What would we recommend? Without reservation, some of the non-Orthodox churches of the Center that reveal the multicultural character of Thessaloniki (Monastery Synagogue, Catholic and Greek Evangelical Church). If you’re curious about what the metro will look like in a year or so when it’s (hopefully) operational, visit the factory at Papafi station or the Pylaia depot. A time-capsule apartment in 1957 is located near Antigonidon square, while renovated houses from the city’s architectural offices are always interesting. In short, make a schedule.
Information about the routes, the buildings and the times of the guided tours can be found at openhouse thessaloniki.gr.
