Fun and eclectic, good ambience and good prices

Easy to find, terrific ambience. Great to find a cafe and just watch the passing parade, the characters and sip a good coffee!

This old market is popular with both locals and tourists. Do not expect much bargaining but you may find something beautiful between the usual junk.

This market is located downtown, easy to find and with some very good tavernas around.. The best is probably the Ouzery O loutros.

Another market or shouk. As usual a colorful place to stroll through and the prices are a bit better than you will find in shops. We really enjoyed the fish stalls with the wide variety of wares we do not see at home.

Bezesteni Market is the place where you can buy different souvenirs. This market is of Turkish origin and is the most beautiful in the Balkans. It was built in the 15th century at the initiative of Baiazid second. Currently the market is specializes in textiles and jewelry.

The Bezesteni market is a must see. Its better to visit in the morning when there are more people around. You should scroll down the small streets and enjoy the smells, colours

This market was just fine and a relaxing walk around. We experienced it as just cosy. Not many of the people did approach us to buy something. We loved it.

It is indeed nice place to drop by as it is close to Aristotelus square. Some interesting shops and caffes can be found and the building itself is interesting.

Thank Boris B
