Time for shopping!
Are you ready for shopping? Then Tsimiski street is waiting for you, as it is the main shopping street of Thessaloniki and it is only 3 minutes away from SUITCASE, walking distance. It is the place where you can find many local brands stores with clothing, shoes, accessories, homeware, electronics, sport equipment, jewellery, but also malls and well known international chain stores. If you want to find famous designers boutiques or small unique ones, move down towards the sea to find Thess Open Mall, an area enveloping all the parallel roads to Tsimiski.
Along with the shops, there are many famous patisseries. You should not miss the chance to try the delicious “tsoureki” and its many variations. Tsoureki is a greek kind of sweet brioche with fantastic aromas and Thessaloniki is the mother of this delicacy. But if you are really hungry after many hours of shopping you should go to Aristotelous square and treat yourself to a “gyros” sandwich, the best greek street food.
Thessaloniki has also many malls, few of them located at the center of the city. The most famous and the largest mall of the city is Mediterranean Cosmos and if you want to visit it you should use public transportation or a taxi. If you are searching for discount malls then you have to move a little further from the city center in order to find them. Going uphills, there are two more streets parallel to Tsimiski, Ermou and Egnatia street where you can also find a variety of local shops for lower budgets.
