Excursion to Vergina, Edessa and Agios Nikolaos with MMTRAVEL Agency

Excursion to Vergina, Edessa and Agios Nikolaos with MMTRAVEL Agency

Vergina

Death, the past, the soil, oblivion are shadows with no colour; but life and memory represent light and colour. The creators of the exhibition at the museum of Vergina have created a world of shadows, where ancient objects dwell emblazoned in light and heat, and where, except for the monuments, the only colour is “porfyra” (scarlet red), insinuating the blood of the royal dead. The darkness that prevails in this space gives birth to a feeling of awe, turns sounds into whispers and imposes the atmosphere of the land of the dead, where visitors wander and unravel the ball of memory.

The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of professor Manolis Andronikos, the archaeologist who brought to light these treasures, and had the knowledge and mental awareness to recognize their significance.

Edessa

Visitors to Edessa have the opportunity to admire two waterfalls. The double waterfall that flows at an angle, and whose turbulent waters split into two, and the Karanos waterfall, whose water falls vertically from a great height of about 70 metres. 

Agios Nikolaos

This is a lush green area with immense plane trees, through which the river of Naoussa, Arapitsa, flows. A perfect location for relaxation, but one that also offers a variety of activities. Visitors can see the church of Agios Nikolaos, the springs of Arapitsa river, the small man-made lake with trout and ducks etc.

THE “OATH” OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

(OPIS, 324 BC)


"I wish you now that wars are coming to an end,that you should be all happy in peace.From now on,let all mortals live as one people,in fellowship,for the common prosperity.See the ecumenic world as your homeland,with common laws,where the meritocracy govern regardless of the race.Unlike the narrowminded,I make no distinction between Greeks and barbarians. The origin of the citizens,or the race into which they were born,is of no concern to me.I judge them by one criterion,the individual virtue.

For me any good foreigner is a Greek and any bad Greek is worse than a barbarian.If disputes ever occur among you,you will not resort to weapons,but will solve them in peace.If need be I shall arbitrate between you.Let us see the god not as an autocratic despot,but as the common father of all and thus your conduct will be like the lives of brothers within the same family.

I,on my part,see you all as equal whether you are white or dark-skinned.And I should like you not simply to be subjects of my commonwealth,but members of it and partners.To the best of my ability I shall strive to do what I have promised. This oath,which we have taken tonight with our libations,keep it as a Symbol of Love"


Lord Byron - source : Don Juan (canto III, st.86)
“The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece! Where burning Sappho loved and sung.
Where grew the arts of war and peace, Where Delos rose, and Phoebus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet, But all, except their sun, is set.”
