UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Thessaloniki available on Google Arts and Culture

Thessaloniki UNESCO World Heritage Sites are now available on the Google Arts & Culture platform.

“Thessaloniki: An Open Museum of Early Christian and Byzantine Art” includes photographs, videos and interactive street views of the city’s ancient and Byzantine monuments, collectively inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1988.

Some of the ancient sites included on the platform are: Rotunda, Acheiropoietos, Panagia Halkeon, Vlatadon Monastery, White Tower, and Byzantine Baths, among others.

The Rotunda, with its unique interior mosaics, is one of the most important monuments of the late Roman world. Photo: Greek Ministry of Culture.

The addition of Thessaloniki’s famous sights and monuments to the multilingual platform, presented in collaboration with Thessaloniki Tourism Organization, is part of Google’s ongoing promotion of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The hugely successful Google Arts & Culture platform, launched in 2011, uses high-resolution images and a range of interactive features to allow virtual visitors to explore artworks, sites and galleries in a number of museums and partner institutions around the world.
