Thessaloniki eyes ‘Alexanderland’ theme park

The deputy governor of Central Macedonia, Giorgos Tsamaslis, who is responsible for Thessaloniki, on Tuesday unveiled an ambitious plan to create a 30-hectare theme park in the northern port city dedicated to Alexander the Great.

“Alexanderland,” as the project is being dubbed, is aimed at casting light on the history of the ancient Macedon king with interactive displays, simulated battles, audiovisual presentations and exhibitions.

Three state-owned plots are being considered for the project, while Tsamaslis’s office is already in talks with experts at Thessaloniki’s Aristotle University in regard to drafting a comprehensive proposal.
