Great monument. A must see on the boardwalk. Day and night it is worth a visit. Park benches near by to chill as well.

came across the sculpture while walking next to the water at Thessaloniki on a really hot summer day. The sculpture was breathtaking and unexpected.

The beautiful display of the Great Alexander sculpture made by Evangelos Moustakas in the 70ties. The open sea square is open wide with many points to take a great shot. TIP: not many people at the pic high temperatures if you need human less photos.
