VERGINA: LIVING HISTORY
Ιn the foothills of the Pieria Mountains, at a very short distance from Thessaloniki (70km), lies Vergina, a cultural site of great historical importance and international impact. Vergina was the first capital of the ancient kingdom of Macedonia, the so-called Aigai, homeland of Alexander the Great. When it came to light, back in 1977, in an excavation that took place under the guidance of Professor Manolis Andronikos, it was considered to be the greatest archaeological discovery of 20nth century in Greece.
Today it stands as a UNESCO World Heritage site and a unique destination that puts a spell on the history-minded visitor with its magnificence and grandeur.
