This Church is absolutely stunning!! I was in awe at it's beauty, from the start! The ancient markings, buildings, architecture & History was superb! The History of it, is very interesting, and I followed the commentary right through, unlike other Churches I have been too, where the commentary & history can become a tad boring! This is most definitely worth... More

If you haven`t been in this Orthodox Church yet, plant it as soon as possible. You can meet a lot of cultures mixed in this place, as well as the real orthodox atmosphere.

A great place for visit if you have interest in Byzantine architecture, regardless of the religion you practice. Interesting history as the Saint Demetrios is considered savior of the city of Thessaloniki.

Attended the Liturgy celebrating the Nativity of the Theotokos. The Byzantine architecture of the Cathedral is breathtaking! Damaged frescoes & mosaics are evidence that the Cathedral was used as a mosque during occupation by the Ottomans. This however does not take away from the beauty of the church. The Gregorian Chanting resonated and took the congregation to a heavenly place!... More

Huge and very beautiful church of basilica style in the heart of the city. Hallows of St. Dimitri, which helps in a difficult situation of course if you are a believer :-)Don't miss the cellar which offers many interesting ancient findings.

Enjoyed visiting this cathedral which was busy with Christenings and its daily business. The crypt was our which is well worth spending time in as there's a lot of original remains to be seen.
