The Zongolopoulos Umbrellas

22Apr

One of the most famous sculpture in Thessaloniki is the famous 13m-high, stainless steel sculpture titled “Umbrellas” on the waterfront. Umbrellas are actually one of the most photographed sculptures around the world.

The sculpture was designed by the late Greek sculptor George Zongolopoulos who exhibited the Umbrellas for the first time on the celebration of the 45th Venice Biennale. The sculpture was mounted on a floating platform at the entrance of the exhibition and received remarkable publicity internationally. Zongolopoulos felt particularly honored with the installation of the Umbrellas in Thessaloniki in 1997, the year that the city was the European Capital of Culture.

We could say that this sculpture is an important reference point for the public space of Greece and a great place for beautifully taken photos in different stages of sunset or sunrise.

Discovering Thessaloniki – Ladadika

10Apr

Ladadika is a historic neighborhood of Thessaloniki now listed as a heritage site by the Ministry of Culture. The entire area is for pedestrians only and features one of the most frequently visited places of the city both by locals and by visitors.

This pedestrian area is conveniently located in a very central spot, close to the port and Aristotelous Square. The easy access is one of the location’s advantages. The area used to be the central market and bazaar of the city for many years. The word “Ladadika” literally means the shops that sell oil and its products.

Ladadika features 19th-century colorful buildings that exude the old charm of the city. Nowadays, the buildings with the 19th-century architectural style are preserved and protected.

Ladadika is the ultimate venue for dining and entertainment and now is a must for every visitor. Here you may find espresso bars, pubs, tavernas, restaurants and stylish bars that will definitely meet your expectations!
