The Liberation of 1912 


The Liberation of 1912

On 26 October 1912, Thessalonica was released from the Greek army, 20 days after the declaration of the A' Balkan war. From 1912, the city grew and changed. Its port lost its old glamour and its role as an important transit centre of Balkan was limited considerably. The arrival of refugees from Mikra Asia, Pontos and Eastern Thraki gave a new impulse in its economy, new industrial and craft-based sectors were created, while others declined. The economy of the city adapted to new data. However the city continues to be a live centre, central point of Northern Greece with its two universities , the International exhibition, the museums (Archaeological , Byzantine, Folklore, etc.), the various institutions, the places of amusement and recreation, etc.
