History

Sykies was built after settling of refugees from Asia Minor. The refugees were from Rodochori of Asia Minor and Pontus. The new residents built a new church that dedicated to patron saints from their origin places.[3] In 1934 the municipality of Thessaloniki was divided in smallest administrative units, so Sykies became a separate community. In 1954 the community of Sykies changed to municipality.[4] Today it is part of Neapoli-Sykies municipality.
