Aigai, is located in the place of the current Vergina, of the Municipality of Veria. It is the first
city of the Macedonians, the core of the ancient Kingdom and the place where for more than
three centuries reigned the family of Philip II and Alexander the Great. Over the years, Aigai
passed on the sidelines until 1977, when the excavations of Manolis Andronikos brought to
the surface the hidden treasures of the area. The archaeological site with the Royal Tombs
Museum is an impressive underground construction which is externally in the form of an
earth mound and it is listed as UNESCO World Heritage site with huge glow.
Here are hosted the most important portable finds from the graves, which are exposed next to
the graves that contained them. Among them the golden shrine of Philip II, personal
belongings of the King of the Macedonians and golden oak and myrtle wreaths worn by the
dead. The unique murals such as that of vivid representation of the abduction of Persephone,
reveal the achievements in painting and art in the years of the glorious Macedonian Kingdom.
