Just in case you've never been to Thessaloniki and wondered what you were missing here's an article from "The Grauniad" http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2011/m ... ki-culture. It cries out for the use of the word "Levant" but never mind.
One sentence did rather grate with me as I have just returned from my trip to Mount Athos:-
And there are plenty of Orthodox Taliban on the nearby monastic republic of Mount Athos, which has its embassy in the city, ready to pounce on any slackening of national-religious fervour.

Baloney.
