The hilly ladscape of Central Macedonia, not far from Olympic coast, hides truly unique archaeological site. It was here, near the modern village of Vergina, where the first capital of ancient Macedonians was located. In the 1970's the scientists unearthed the burial site of their kings, including the tomb of Philip II, father of Alexander the Great.
WHAT TO SEE
Although there are more theories about who was really buried here, the important thing is that the tombs remained undisturbed and we can admire today the golden treasure and other state-of-the-art artifacts found in them. The modern museum built on the site has a form of a tumulus that was covering the tombs for centuries and the impressively arranged underground exhibition will take your breath away. Indeed, the most beautiful experiences are sometimes hidden within our reach.
