Thessalonians’ native language is Greek, the country’s official language, while English is the most popular foreign language in use. Due to the great interest of learning foreign languages, there are a lot of private schools for that cause, as well as, many residents are multilingual (speaking fluently German, French, Italian, Russian, Serbian etc.) due to their work or studies abroad. Most certainly, you’ll find someone to help you in your wanderings!
Furthermore, while walking around the city, you’ll get all the help you need, by the bilingual street signs in both Greek and English, especially those close to areas of cultural interest, as well as, the “walking” signs which, apart from the direction, they state the distances from nodal points and monuments, the time needed to reach the destination by foot, and even the number of calories that can be burnt.
