Organisation of Urban
Transportation of Thessaloniki
Cultural Route


On September 1st, 2009, OASTH launched a special “Cultural Route” (Bus No 50) to make the rich historical and cultural heritage of Thessaloniki more accessible to its citizens and visitors. The bus departs from the White Tower for a 50-minute tour around the citys main historical and cultural monuments. The tour is supported by a telematics based audio-visual material (in Greek and English), as well as by printed leaflets (also in Greek and English and soon in more foreign languages).

The specially equipped bus, as it can be seen on the photo above,  is appropriately decorated on the outside to be easily recognised, Route attendants distribute informational leaflets and offer additional information to provide passengers with the best services possible.


Thessaloniki on the go!

Welcome to the “Cultural Route” of Urban Public Transport of Thessaloniki (OASTh).

The “Route to the History of Thessaloniki” stops very close to many of the historical monuments, that have built up  the city’s history through the ages, from ancient, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine times until today.

Thessaloniki has a multicultural character due to different nationalities that have lived in it through time.
