Thessaloniki: August in the city

Our Blog

August and the city go together? But they do!

August may be the predominant month for holidays and relaxation, but that doesn’t mean that those who stay in the city can’t have a good time. So for all of you, who for whatever reason will be staying or visiting Thessaloniki in August, we have 5 suggestions for fun and relaxation.

  1. Picnic at Platanodasos – Heading towards Chortiatis, shortly after Panorama you will follow the signs and you will find yourself in an oasis of greenery. Perennial trees, water and plenty of coolness for the hot days of August. Stock up on the essentials for a picnic under the trees or visit the refreshment centre for coffee or lunch.
  2. Cycling with a view – Early morning or late afternoon is the ideal time for an enjoyable bike ride around the city. The top location is of course the beach of Thessaloniki for a bike ride with good company overlooking the sea.
  3. Movies under the stars – Summer without summer cinema is not possible! Whether in leafy courtyards or on rooftops, you can watch your favourite films on warm, yet cool, August nights.
  4. Diving in the city – Just because you’re in Thessaloniki doesn’t mean you won’t dive! Apart from the nearby beaches, you can swim and enjoy the sun in the city’s swimming pools. Whether you are located west or east there is sure to be one nearby. Put on a swimsuit, equip yourself with sunscreen and a towel and you’re ready for moments of relaxation and fun!
  5. Tourist in my city – Live a day like a tourist! Book an overnight stay in a hotel on the outskirts of Thessaloniki and indulge in total relaxation and rejuvenation, turn off your mobile phones and disconnect from the rhythms of the city even if you are actually not far from it.

Hotel Prestige is located in a green area that offers guests a relaxing visit. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and just a few minutes from the centre of Thessaloniki, it is the ideal quick escape from the city.

In the picturesque suburb of Oraiokastro, you will feel like you are a thousand miles away, with the fresh air enjoying the view from the balcony of your room.
