Açıklama

Kassopi is an ancient Greek city with the most beautiful view. A real natural “balcony” where the visitor gets lost in the magic of the diversity of the landscapes.


The founders of Ancient Kassope in the first half of the 4th century BC. chose the location carefully. A naturally fortified location, at an altitude of 650 meters, under the steep rocks of Mount Zalogos and oriented towards the well-being of the residents.


Kassopi has impressive ancient architecture, as it is built with the Hippodamian system and is divided into 20 parallel streets, the “narrows”. The Kassopeans, a quintessentially continental race, created a great economic and commercial center, with a civil market, rectory, two theaters, a hostel, temples of worship, and its own mint. Especially the great ancient theater of Kassope is a real work of art. The city was destroyed in 167 BC . by the Romans and was completely deserted in 31 BC. when the remaining inhabitants were forcibly transferred as settlers to the newly founded Roman city of Ancient Nicopolis.


In the archaeological site, which emerges through beautiful clusters of trees, the visitor browses through impressive findings of antiquity, which are preserved in excellent condition, always having an amazing view. One of the few ancient cities, where the visitor can feel what life was like in the ancient world.
