Day Trip to Dion and Mountain Olympus from Thessaloniki

35 reviews
Leave Thessaloniki for a day and discover ancient Dion and Mt. Olympus without the stress of public transport or hire cars. Travel to Dion Archaeological Park, home to city ruins dating from the 6th century BC; and explore its relics and museum. Next, visit Mt. Olympus, the home of the gods in Greek mythology, and walk in the Epinea Gorge to absorb the scenery surrounding the peak before returning.

If you are Jewish, it is a must. If you you are interested in history and in particular the Thessaloniki history, the Jewish community was major here. One hour will be suffice.

We would like to thank you for your review. We feel sorry that you were disappointed. However, I would like to inform you that the most of articles-archives, photos and objects in the Museum are the original copies and they are not available on the internet. Regarding the 7 euros ticket, it is a donation to the Jewish Museum and the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki. .

This museum provided both and insight into the history of the Jewish population of Thessaloniki and due to the importance of the Jewish population the overall historical development of the city. I was particularly taken by the historical maps explaining the migration routes into Thessaloniki and how these locations filtered into the development of Thessaloniki today. The overlayed topological maps enabled the history to be brought alive by creating direct links between past and present.

It is a not well known fact but Thessaloniki was once a predominantly Jewish city. Due to the Spanish Inquisition in 1492 when Queen Izabella and King Ferdinand of Spain expelled the Sepharadic Jews from Spain, Thessaloniki became a Jewish capital. Already, since the early 1500s, Thessaloniki's biggest community - in terms of population - was the Jewish one, reaching an astonishing 66% in the mid 1600s. However, the holocost in Thessaloniki was among the most extreme in Europe and the once thriving Jewish community was almost entirely exterminated in the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Bergen Bensen. The Jewish museum in Thessaloniki is located in the heart of the city center, in a beautiful building from the early 1900s and the exhibition itself will give you an informative timeline of the community’s long and important presence in the city.

Whilst I was a visitor to Thessaloniki I have read a few books about the history and the effects of the Holocaust. The museum is small - which for me is good. I read many of the explanations of the exhibits ( they are in Greek and English) but I was still only in the museum for about 1.25 hours. A lot of the exhibits relate to Thessaloniki's history through the centuries - very well done. Interwoven is the history of the Jews in Thessaloniki. There is, what i thought, a small section relate to the Holocaust- I think that the Germans destroyed so much evidence and the majority perished that there is little to exhibit but there was enough information for me. The women on the reception could have been friendlier and if i did not speak Greek or English there would be no point going. The information booklet you pick up as you go in is poor but that did not matter as thereafter all is self explanatory.
