A good thing is that there are many signs along the road to reach Kokino by car. Have in mind that after parking there is about 10 min walk on foot uphill to reach the site. It is really very interesting, as it unveils a...More

Bronze Age archaeological treasure. Truly unique place and free hidden from the tourist (only the persistent can find it). Best way to get there is by car with a navigator ,because buses are very rare and uncomfort. Live lecture for BC culture. STRONGLY RECOMMEND !!!!

This place is amazing! If it was advertised more it could become very famous. It's very far in the east and you have to drive for a long time to get there. Trust the direction once you've followed the sign to Kokino - you'll continue...More
