Vergina, established in 1923, was initially referred to as the sacred capital of ancient Macedonia, Ephesus. It was the home of the argeades dynasty`s royal tombs until the first century. It is definitely a location that should not be missed! Two museums can be found in Vergina. The first one, anaktoro, contains partially undamaged mosaics and building fragments. The second is even more amazing and showcases the Macedon kings` royal tombs like Philip ii`s — father of Alexander the great! All museum exhibits are sure to impress any guest!
Mount Olympus is the spiritual heart of historic societies and the home of the olympian deities. You will be astounded by the striking sights of this place! It has two of the highest greek heights: Pantheon height (2918 meters) and the throne of Zeus (2909 meters). The former is now named «Mytikas» and it was the abode of the gods of the ancient hellas. The throne of Zeus (now known as Stefani) was solely reserved for the powerful Zeus, leader of the gods.
The remarkable biodiversity and exclusive vistas of Olympus natural reserve make it a magnet for mountaineers, naturalists, and scientists of all kinds. Moreover, its mountainside villages, such as lithochoro, are renowned for their traditional hotels (known as «xenon`s») and eateries with delicious local cuisine. Located 300 meters above sea level on the eastern slopes of mount olympus, lithochoro is the most well-known of the villages.
At the base of the majestic mount olympus is situated the archeological complex of dion — the religious capital of ancient macedonia, where the primary ceremonies were held to honor Zeus.
Dion was established hundreds of years ago and has been a significant religious center for Greece for centuries. Nowadays it is a museum of archeology, where visitors can view the remains of ancient temples, gymnasiums, and baths, among other things. It is like a huge outdoor museum, with no walls to enclose, but instead surrounded by open air. Dion is home to many well-preserved mosaics, murals, and sculptures, and many other ancient artifacts that you should witness for yourself!
