Cosa farete

Thessaloniki was described as “The Sultan’s Rose”. The legend says that one night Sultan Murat II dreamed of Allah, offering him a rose. The sultan asked if he could have the rose for his own. Allah gave the rose to Murat, he smelled it and got fascinated by its sweet odor. Then Allah said: “Murat, this rose is Selanik. It is your fate to take it”. Some days later, the city was sieged. It was back in 1430. Thessaloniki, the second most important city of the Eastern Roman Empire was now a part of the Ottoman Empire and would remain as such for 5 centuries. And would be called “Selanik”. In this historical promenade, we will walk around the city and visit all the characteristic memoirs of its Ottoman period. We will talk about the history, since the city was founded up to our days. We will learn how everyday life was in previous centuries, the mentality of the Ottoman Empire and how it contributed to what has become todays’ special character of Selanik, a city of many faces, a city of the east and the west. A city that gave birth not just to the man but also to the movement that turned the Ottoman Empire into modern Turkey: Kemal Ataturk and the Young Turks. We will not exclude from our talks other crucial elements of the city’s history, such as the arrival of the Jews, just 50 years after the city’s conquest. And of course, we will speak about the numerous legends of the city.

George

We are George, Stavros and Katerina, a group of local young social scientists, thrilled by the way that an everyday walk in the city of Thessaloniki can bring someone so close to monuments indicating the coexistence of three different communities (muslims, christians and jews) for so many centuries. We want to pass this exact sentiment to the people who visit Thessaloniki. We have also created this project in order to raise money for our PhD studies and organize scientific congresses on the contemporary history of Greek people and the relationship between cities’ structures and social procedures.

We will have the chance to see preserved hamams, the only surviving minaret of the city, vintage villas and, of course, the house of Kemal Ataturk, now the Turkish Consulate.
