“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We visited Ayios Demetrios early evening and it was very busy. It's an old Orthodox church and well worth a visit.

“A very beautiful church, but the crowds!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

There are few old churches in Thessaloniki as interesting and beautiful, but this is something everybody knows. Tourists arrive by the busload and by 10:00 am you can hardly move.

“Visiting Thessaloniki, you must not miss ágios Di̱mí̱trios Holy Cript and Church !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

When we are traveling to Thessaloniki we never miss visiting Saint Dimitrios Holy Cript, Relics and Church.This is the Saint what people of Thessaloniki believe is protecting their own town.
The Church is very well and precisely re-constructed, you can see around old and original well-preserved murals and mosaics. There are also a few original marble columns, which reveals the grandeur of the ~ 4th century ancient building.
Peaceful and Sacred Ground !
Highly recommended !

“THE PROTECTOR OF THESSALONICA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

People of Thessaloniki believe that Saint Demetrios protects their town, and they give his name to their children. Both church and Crypt are of great interest. The church inside is very beautiful and clean, is worthwhile a visit and is good to know the history of Saint Demetrios to understand better about the Crypt.
