Rub the thumb of the statue of Aristotelous, and let the wisdom and knowledge of the ancient philosopher be with you!
How to rub the thumb of Aristotelous in Thessaloniki
They say, that the ancient Greek thinker Aristotelous wrote a lot of his philosophical works with the thumb of his left foot. His monument sits exactly on the same way on a pedestal on the square of Aristotle.

People believe that rubbing the thumb of the ancient Greek sage will pass to them part of Aristotelous' knowledge and wisdom. Judging by the fact that the thumb is rubbed to shine, many tourists follow this tradition. Check whether it 's true!

How to do?

1. Find the monument of Aristotelous in the main square of the city with the same name. It is hidden with trees from the attention of travelers.
2. Sit next to the thinker and rub his thumb on the left foot.
3. You are about to think how your philosophical treatise will be called :)
