The new promenade in Thessaloniki

02 December 2013 / 15:12:20  

After two and a half years of repairs, the promenade in Thessaloniki has been “returned” to the city’s residents and visitors.

The new parks and the thematic Garden of Sculptures, Garden of Mediterranean, Garden of Fokas, Garden of Seasons, Garden of Sand, Garden of the Afternoon Sun and Garden of Alexander provoked positive emotions in the residents of Thessaloniki who visited the promenade on Sunday.

The opening on 1 December was combined with the transformation of the coastal Nikis Avenue into a pedestrian zone. This is a pilot measure, the goal being to turn it into a tradition on the first Sunday of each month.

The promenade, which is 6 km long, starts from the harbour and ends at Thessaloniki Concert Hall.
