The Jewish heritage

Over the past five centuries, Thessaloniki has been called ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans’ and ‘Mother of Israel’. In 1492, the city became a safe haven for Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain and evolved into a flourishing Jewish metropolis from that time on. For much of its history, the city’s modernisation was linked with the wealth and the prosperity of its Jewish community. Discover the richness of the city’s Jewish history on this special tour.
