I was so fascinated, even more so as King Philip was a big hero of mine when at... More

Some visitors complain... More

The tombs as well as all the findings from the tombs will... More

Much of the site is closed for renovations. So many things in Greece are at the moment. Not a good time to visit Vergina. It was scaffolding and cement mixers when i went.

I think, if you are traveling in north Greece, you must visit Vergina. The museum and environment is just spectacular. Here is the place, where you will see tombs of Macedonian Royal family, Include Philip II macedonian (father of Alexander the Great). Until now I am under my emotions. I can definitely say, that it throws you back and somehow... More
