Vergina is one of the most interesting places in Northern Greece. The existing village of Vergina is really the capital of Ancient Macedonia, then called Aiges. The beautiful and one-of-its-kind museum of Vergina, where you can enter the tomb of the famous king of Macedonia, Phillip II, the father of Alexander the Great, was discovered in 1977 by the Greek archaeologist Manolis Andronikos. It was thanks to the discovery of the burial chambers, beautiful wall paintings, golden urns, golden wreaths and other treasures uncovered there, that the site found its way onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. So if you would like to learn more about the history of Ancient Macedonia, the works of king Phillip II and of Alexander the Great – book a trip to Vergina or, better yet, to both Pella and Vergina, with an English-speaking guide!
