  • About

    Kos is located 4 km outside the Turkish coastal city of Bodrum. Kos has many fine sandy beaches and a rich nightlife. There are plenty of beaches and the buses that travel from the city of Kos along the coast make it possible to hop on and off at various beaches.
    There are plenty of hotels on the island and most of the tourist resorts are located on the coast. If you go more inland it will be calmer and there are the more traditional villages.
    Kos Town is the capital and has been there since 366 BC. when it was founded. Popular with young people who come here and party during the high season. In recent years, however, efforts have been made to target other target groups. The city has been cleaned up and traffic has been redone. Kardamena is located southeast of Kos town and is popular with Scandinavians with its long sandy beach and rich nightlife. Kefalos is located south and is quieter and more relaxing to suit families with children. There are many fine sandy beaches.

  • Sights

    Archaeological Museum
    In the city of Kos there is an archeological museum that is worth a visit for anyone interested in archeology.
    Asklepion
    Outside the city of Kos lies the Asklepion Temple area. Asklepion was dedicated to the god Asklepios, the one who bestowed healing. Asklepio's hallmark was a wand surrounded by a snake. It is said that Asklepion is the oldest 'hospital' in the world
    Hipokrates garden
    A fairly newly built old-style attraction. It will give a hum about how a small settlement could look like 500 BC. Worth a visit.
    Palio Pyli
    A fortress that was built to protect against pirates and was therefore constructed as poorly accessible as possible. Beautiful mountains and green pine-scented forests. It can be sweaty to get here but it is worth the trouble as the view is absolutely wonderful.
