On 22\9 we had the autumnal equinox, so autumn officially began.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the autumnal equinox marks the first day of autumn based on the astronomical seasons.
There is also another, more common definition of when the seasons begin, namely meteorological definitions, which are based on average temperatures rather than astronomical events.
Whether we follow the astronomical definition or the meteorological one, we are ready to welcome autumn, the season that, perhaps most of all, brings out the romantic side of Thessaloniki.
Our city fills with people. Slowly the last of the summer holidays are returning and we are all getting back into our rhythms.
In every corner of the city the grey sky and the purple colours of the leaves create a welcome melancholic and at the same time romantic atmosphere. The mornings and evenings are now cool and invite us to enjoy them with a stroll through the city. Hot coffee comes to replace the cold and what better than to drink it with good company and a view of Thermaikos.
We watch in awe at the reverent change of season as we watch the garden of Hotel Prestige, leaving its summer colours as it begins to wear its autumn mantle.
Despite the challenging season we are in and the grey autumn weather we remain optimistic by always taking the necessary measures. With safety and anticipation we invite you to enjoy our beloved autumn Thessaloniki.
In the picturesque suburb of Oraiokastro, you will feel as if you are a thousand miles away, with the fresh air enjoying the autumn view from the balcony of your room.
