ΤHESSALONIKI’S PORT – KITCHEN BAR
For 2300 years, since its foundation in 315/6 BC and up until today, the port of Thessaloniki constitutes the most important port in Macedonia and one of the most important ports in Southeast Europe.
Due to its advantageous geographical location and its excellent road links and train connections, it is the largest transit-trade port in the country and it services the needs of approximately 15 million inhabitants of its international mainland.
It is located on the inner part of the Bay of Thermaicos, on the northern section of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, to the west of the center of the city of Thessaloniki. Approach of the ships is accomplished through a natural channel of substantial depth, not needing thus any further deepening.
It occupies a total space of 1.5 million square meters and it spreads across a length of 3.5km.
The installations include 6 piers spreading on a 6200 meter-long quay and a sea depth down to 12 meters, with open and indoors storage areas spreading on a total of 600,000 square meters, suitable for servicing all types of cargo as well as passenger traffic.
It is linked to a dense, traffic network that is directly linked to the national and international road network, bypassing thus city entrance.
The port enjoys a privileged position being located at the crossroad of land transportation networks.
