Church of Panagia Chalkeon | Thessaloniki, Greece


We found this Greek Orthodox church thanks to an app that led us around the city and helped us discover also many other such sights in Thessaloniki. The Church of Panagia Chalkeon is located at the Dikastirion Square, close to Aristotelus Avenue – the area in which we rented an apartment for our visit in Thessaloniki, Greece.


The Church of Panagia Chalkeon

Built in the 11th century, the architecture of this Thessaloniki church is of the typical for the region Macedonian style. The locals call it “the Red Church” because the entire building is made of bricks.


Our visit in Thessaloniki, Greece

Those of you, who have already been to the second-largest city of Greece, probably have noticed that such ornamental Greek orthodox churches appear suddenly in front of your eyes, often in surprising places. Founded in the 3rd century BC, today Thessaloniki is a combination of ancient history with economic and political power.

When you look at this photo, can you imagine the Church of Panagia Chalkeon, surrounded by blocks of flats, built in communistic style? Me neither. However, that was the reality, which made it a challenge for me to capture its beauty. Only after I focused on the path, leading to the entrance, I achieved the effect I wanted.

Get it On Your Wall

It took us with Nico few minutes to book the flight to San Cristobal de la Laguna after we googled „the sunniest places in Europe in November “. Fact, there was not much choice – the rainy mood seems to spread over Europe in this time. However, what we found about Canary Islands surprised us enormously. The all Canary Islands seemed to offer sunny weather, palms and turquois view on Ocean. And Tenerife… Tenerife seemed to us to be different to all…

Do you know that in one small island you can have four (it’s not hyperbole) seasons of the year? With drive, over 20 km further north or south you can either experience summer or winter. This vision was too crazy for us to say it’s truth – don’t trust blog articles until you experience it by yourself. The prices of accommodation and renting car after first research appeared to us to be very friendly, so we didn’t hesitate too long.
