Thessaloniki. Macedonia. Greece. View of the Equestrian statue of Alexander the Great riding his favoured horse Bucephalus, on the waterfront at Thessaloniki. Alexander the Great, who succeeded his father to the throne at the age of 20, was a military genius whose battle tactics are studied to this day. He extended his empire from his northern Greek hometown of Pella near Thessaloniki, across the Middle East and Egypt to Persia and India in just over a decade. He died in 323 B.C. at age 33. Thessaloniki, in the heart of Macedonia is the 2nd largest city in Greece.
