SPOT: ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF PHILIPPI

After leaving Thassos very early in the morning we had enough time to visit the Philippi Archaeological Site from Kavala. Having visited the city before, I made a research to find new attractions around the city and found Philippi. When we decided to go there, we had no idea that it would be so fascinating. Although I had never heard of it before, it was one of the largest archaeological sites I have ever been to. You can easily lose yourself between the stone ruins and imagine roaming the streets and markets of Philippi.

You can find the history of the ancient city in the UNESCO website.

Thassos’tan sabah erkenden ayrilmamiz ve Istanbul otobusumuzun gece 11 civari kalkisi bize Philippi arkeolojik alanina gitmek icin rahat bir zaman yaratti. Kavala’ya daha once de gittigim icin o civarda baska gezilecek yerler ararken buldum burayi. Sonucun bu kadar etkileyici olacagini tahmin edememistim. Gittigim en buyuk antik kentlerden biriydi ve daha once adini hic duymamistim. Eger yolunuz duserse pek de tabelasi bulunmayan bu yere ugrayin derim.

Antik kentin uzunca ve guzel tarihi UNESCO’nun websitesinden okunabilir.

Bulundugu yerin haritasi ise buradan buluabilir.
