TIME magazine has included the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki on its list of “The World’s Greatest Places” for 2022.

According to TIME, these are the top spots to visit this year.

To compile the list TIME solicited nominations of places from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.

“The list includes 50 far-flung and familiar spots, from the Great Barrier Reef, where visitors can see undersea wonders while participating in conservation efforts, to the ultra-high-tech city of Seoul,” the magazine says.

Described as a “culinary melting pot”, Thessaloniki is on the list for its vibrant gastronomy scene.

“The second most populous metropolis in Greece, Thessaloniki has long attracted foodies, so it came as no surprise that it recently became the first Greek city to be added to the UNESCO Creative Cities of Gastronomy network,” TIME says.

The magazine’s writer Margarita Gokun Silver also refers to the city’s refurbished Modiano Market.

“The city’s largest market is housed in a basilica-­style building and has been serving shoppers since 1925. When it reopens in September, the market will be host to gastronomy festivals and pop-ups, in addition to its regular roster of food stalls,” she says.
