In Thessaloniki, waterfront revitalization is key for the city’s growth

In Thessaloniki, a promenade along the Aegean Sea is dotted with fountains, sculptures, grassy parks, and the iconic “Umbrellas” art installation of the late Greek sculptor George Zongolopoulos. This is the city’s New Waterfront. Opened in 2013, it is part of a major long-term revitalization project to create vibrant thematic destinations along the city’s entire 8.5 km waterfront, combining leisure and sports activities with commerce – whilst linking it with parks, green areas, bikeways and pedestrian paths.
