What people say

"The "Umbrellas" stands as a remarkable piece of art created by the renowned sculptor Giorgios Zoggolopoulos, capturing the attention of every visitor in Thessaloniki. Positioned centrally along Nea Paralia, its imposing stature and considerable size (with umbrellas reaching 13 meters high, creating the illusion of touching the sky) add to its allure. Notably, Zoggolopoulos initially showcased this particular work at the Venice Biennale in 1993, earning praise, and later exhibited it outside the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki in 1997."
"The most instagramable point in the promenade. Installed in 1997 along the waterfront, this iconic sculpture by George Zongolopoulos is often seen as symbolizing freedom and innovation. It’s especially captivating at sunset and is one of the most photographed spots in the city."
