According to a greek newspaper three buildings at Tatoi are being restored in order to be ready to safely store and preserve the items of the palace.Those buildings are the main stable,the house of the adjutant and the kitchen.These restorations were a result of the wrong handling of the minister of culture for stopping the auction and the publicity of the matter of the ruining items of historical value in Tatoi palace.

The old palace (Palaia Anaktora), erected for King Otto and his consort Amalia that was also occupied later by King George I and Queen Olga, is the building that now houses the parliament and known as The Parliament (although the term Palaia Anaktora is still used by older people). Because that building was huge, inconvenient and difficult to modernize (back then), another palace was built for them on the eastern side of the National Gardens, on Herodus Atticus Street, which now is known as the Presidential Palace (Proedrikon Megaron) and houses the Presidency. This building is small by European standards (but is bigger than the Amalienborg and Norwegian downtown palace).
Of note, the current President of the Republic does not reside in the building but in a privately owned modest 1000 sq ft apartment on Asklipiou Street. The president has his office at the palace which also serves for formal functions such as accreditation ceremonies of foreign diplomats, receptions for foreign dignitaries, galas etc.

Question King Constantine's and Anne Marie's palace in Salonica Greece

Hello Everyone,

I am new to TRF, which I happen to come accross the internet quite accidentally and which I find quite informative. I need to find out some information for some research I am doing for a book, about the King's palace outside the City of Thessaloniki Greece. Is it still standing, is it a museum, how big is it, has it been taken care off since the King left the country in 1967?

Is the place, which I remember as Aretsou, still the same name?

Any information you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Max55

Hello Vally,

Thank you for your response, but that's not what I was looking for. When I lived in Salonica, there was a palace outside of the city, that the royal family would use. I was wondering if it's still exists, and what condition is in. It seems that I can't find anything on the internet, unless I call my mother in Salonica, which I doubt if she knows the condition of it, or take a trip back which I will do in the fall. But it's quite some time and I want to get going with my research.

Thanks again for your quick response.

The house in Psychiko is just a villa not a palace. A Greek Cypriot millionaire purchased it years ago. Even if one tried to get there he'd get lost. The Greek Royal family did not have Palaces so to speak. The Tatoi home is laying in ruins and the PASOK government has sold the surrounding land. The Athens Palace which is behind the Houses of Parliament and the original Royal Palace is used by the President of the Government. Ironically, during the 2004 Athens Olympics Queen Anne Marie and King COnstantine attended a garden party in their old home as IOC VIP guests..........

This is Royal simplicity at its best. Those buried in these simple tombs have been true blue bloods. It brings tears to my eyes. Most of them left their families their countries and religions to become Greeks and die there. Most have worked to give Greece something special. God rest their souls.
Does anyone know where Prince Nicolaos father of the Duchess of Kent is buried?

Perhaps Phillipe Egalite or Vasilofron can respond more accurately but I was not aware they had a palace in Thessaloniki. There is the Mon Repos Palace in Corfu, but this is the only residence I know they had besides the Athens residences mentioned elsewhere.

King George I had a stately villa in Thessalonika called Villa Allatini. The villa was later sold or donated to the state and is now part of a college or university of some sort.

It's beautiful. What is it used for now? Is it open to the public, or is has someone been using it as their private residence? I would love to see what it looks like inside.

The Government House was built as the official residence of the King and the Queen of Greece who stayed there during their visits to Thessaloniki. In the past a number of important personalities, including Greek Presidents have been guests at the Small Palace. Today the estate belongs to the Ministry of Macedonia-Thrace.

Today's Kathimerini newspaper in Athens has 2 articles about Tatoi.
It reports that the Greek government has set aside 800,000 euros for the renovation of the former royal estate. They will accept bids from interested experts for renovations. There are boxes of relics, paintings, manuscripts carpets and clothes of the royals still within the palace.
The 3,000 hectare estate has been deteriorating since 1967 when the Greek royal family left Greece.
In another article the paper mentioned that among the personal property still inside the palace of Tatoi, there are paintings signed "Freddy" These paintings were the works of Queen Frederica of Greece.
They expect to have offers by May to renovate and perhaps in addition to a museum to open a restaurant in a building of secondary importance.
It is heartwarming to read that after all these years finally something may be done to save such an important part of modern Greek history.
