By Yiannis Papadopoulos

Mayor’s efforts pay off as Turkish, Israeli visitors discover their ‘own’ Thessaloniki
 
A solid campaign by Mayor Yiannis Boutaris and a number of travel agencies to promote the city’s multicultural past and attract tourists has met with a great deal of success. Between 2010 and 2013, the number of Israeli tourists rose by 358 percent, while Turkish visitors went up 226 percent.

Targeted due to their sexuality
 
A recent outing came to a horrible end for a gay couple when they fell victim to a homophobic attack. It was 6 a.m. and the two 20-year-olds were walking to Kerameikos metro station in Gazi, one of the capital’s most popular night spots, to meet four friends, all women.
