Time-lapse Thessaloniki - Aristotelous Square
Our live webcam in Thessaloniki overlooks the mesmerizing Aristotelous Square.
Located on the Thermaic Gulf in the Aegean Sea, Thessaloniki was founded in 316 BC and is one of the country's top tourist destinations.
Aristotelous Square (captured by our Thessaloniki live cam) is the perfect place to soak up this fascinating city's vibrant life. The large open space, stretching towards the sea, provides magnificent views of the Thermaic Gulf and is home to the city's main events (from the traditional Christmas markets to political rallies).
Every December, the square holds a curious Greek tradition: a prominent illuminated ship-shaped metal structure is erected. For the rest of the year, it hosts numerous concerts, exhibitions and other cultural events.
