Visit Kos island

Welcome to Kos, the best kept secret in the Aegean sea… The crossroad between civilizations, between East and West, the meeting point of both culture and trade

A place where antiquity and modern civilization find themselves in unison. Monuments of the past await for you to discover and admire them. Kos of the present awaits to live with you the carefree life of summer in Greece, to enjoy with you the sun, the sea, the atmosphere. The town of Kos was founded in 366 BC, in the same area where modern Kos nowadays is situated. It climaxed during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, being a crossroad between civilizations, between East and West, the meeting point of both culture and trade. Its public market was very renowned in the antiquity and is still thriving in our days.When entering the harbor of Kos town the imposing medieval Castle of Neratzia is bound to draw your attention. This castle is connected to the mainland by a bridge that crosses the Palm Tree Avenue, the same one that connects the Castle to the Platanos, the large plane tree under which Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, used to teach.

The Asclepeion, located just outside Kos town, is probably the most famous and important archaeological site on the island.  It is world-wide known as the centre of Hippocrates’ Medical School, since it was there that Hippocrates used to practice medicine; it was there that the Hippocratic Oath was first told, a tradition that has been repeated thousands of times each time a new doctor takes its oath. Up to this day the Hippocratic Oath can be heard every summer in the Temple of Asclepius, recited in ancient Greek, a practice that brings awe to all attendants… Culture, history, nature, all together shape the beauty of Kos. Pass the beautiful wetland of Psalidi you’ll find Therma, a place that owes its name to the numerous hot springs of the area. Hot spring water is not only relaxing and rejuvenating, it also has health benefits, since its rich sulfur content has great therapeutic value.
