Church Of Hagia Sofia - Review
This beautiful, imposing and memorable church in Thessaloniki is perhaps from the 6th or 8th Century. The old and stunning structure is also perhaps one of the oldest buildings to be found in the city as well. This church may not be as famous as its namesake and counterpart in Istanbul but its gigantic beauty surely makes it a lovely tourist attraction.
The single dome surrounded by the square building speaks volumes through its simplicity and elegance. The old brickwork gives the place a rustic charm that cannot be faked. The interiors are as simple but the mélange of gold and color make them a stunning sight. It is certainly one of the sites worth visiting in Thessaloniki.

Very nice cathedral.. Lots of people just relaxing here with their drinks at night. Some of them smoking some weird stuff that smell funny
One of the must visit Byzantine churches of Thessaloniki is the church of Hagia Sophia which is has as prototype the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. The church has one of the most beautiful wall paintings internationally. Easy to access with public transport and someone can relax at the outside parc of the church.
