Ancient Sites in Greece (Mainland) in 4K Ultra HD

The Ancient Sites in Mainland Greece, where the history of the Western Civilization began ...
Main sites in the video: Delphi (0:01), Olympia (1:40), Mycenae (3:10), Tiryns (4:12), Epidaurus (4:44), Acrocorinth (5:24), Corinth (6:25), Athens (7:11).
Couple of views from interesting nearby locations that do not belong to the ancient history: Galaxidi (1:36), Nafplio from the Palamidi fortress(4:28), Corinth Canal (6:56). The fortress at Acrocorinth is from Byzantine and later times, but Acrocorinth itself is the acropolis of ancient Corinth.

UNESCO World Heritage Sites in this video (all quotes from whc.unesco.org):

Delphi: The pan-Hellenic sanctuary of Delphi, where the oracle of Apollo spoke, was the site of ... the 'navel of the world'. Blending harmoniously with the superb landscape and charged with sacred meaning, Delphi in the 6th century B.C. was indeed the religious centre and symbol of unity of the ancient Greek world.

Olympia: In the 10th century B.C., Olympia became a centre for the worship of Zeus. The Altis – the sanctuary to the gods – has one of the highest concentrations of masterpieces from the ancient Greek world. In addition to temples, there are the remains of all the sports structures erected for the Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia every four years beginning in 776 B.C.

Mycenae and Tiryns: The archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns are the imposing ruins of the two greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, which dominated the eastern Mediterranean world from the 15th to the 12th century B.C. and played a vital role in the development of classical Greek culture.

Epidaurus: Hellenic architectural ensemble of the 4th century BCE. The site is one of the most complete ancient Greek sanctuaries of Antiquity and is significant for its architectural brilliance and influence.

Acropolis, Athens: The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world.

10 Weird Places Hidden in Turkey

Get more Tips here!

Turkey is a big country full of different cultures, wonderful people and amazing things to see. And within all the beauty, there is also a bucket load of weird hidden places that you may not have known where hiding there. So, in order to get to know the place better, we bring you these 10 Weird places hidden in Turkey.

1) Pamukkale
Located on the outskirts of an ancient city in the Denizli province, these rock formations have been formed over millennia by carbonate deposits, funnelled into unusual terraces by hot springs and streams. Some people believe that the waters have healing powers.

2) Nemrut Dagi
This eerie site, filled with ancient statues, is thought to be the ancient tombs of King Antiochus, built in the first century. The mountain, located near Adiyaman in southeastern Turkey, contains statues of King Antiochus, lions, eagles and various Greek and Armenian gods.

3) Mount Ararat
This is a dormant volcano and some scholars believe that this is the site where Noah pitched up his ark after the great flood. A 2007 expedition found seven large wooden compartments near the peak of the mountain that correspond to the way an ancient ark would have been constructed and the wood is around 4,800 years old.

4) The Trojan Horse
Most people think that Troy is as fictional as the Cyclops or the Sirens who tried to tempt Odysseus to his death. Today, you can wander around the ruins of the ancient city, climb inside a replica of the Trojan horse, and imagine the battle that sacked one of the most important cities of the ancient world.

5) Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
This tomb was built by the Greek architects for Mausolus, a satrap in the Persian Empire, and his sister-wife Artemisia II of Caria. It was 45 m (148 ft) high, and the four sides were adorned with sculptural reliefs but was destroyed by successive earthquakes. Today, you can see its ruins. This is the origin of the word mausoleum

6) Cappadocia’s cave houses
A number of Goreme residents live in dwellings carved out of the rock, or in large cave structures beneath the ground. Visitors to the area can stay in hotels hewn out of rock faces, and visit underground Byzantine churches.

7) The Temple of Artemis
Located at Ephesus, this was rebuilt twice and was described by some as the most spectacular of the ancient wonders. You can see the foundations and some ruins at the ancient city of Ephesus.

8) Mardin’s sandstone buildings
Mardin was built 4000 years ago entirely of yellow chalk stone. The houses are decorated with different motifs but on the whole are very similar, giving the whole city a slightly unreal look, like a film set. Most of the tourists get lost in its maze like streets.

9) Myra's rock tomb
In ancient times, the wealthy and important citizens of Myra were placed in tombs carved out of the hillside. These beautiful necropoli are haunting monuments to their mysterious occupants who died thousands of years ago, still watching over their ancestors.

10) Gemiler island
The island's ruined church is believed to contain St Nicholas' tomb (patron of sailors). Around 650 AD the remains were transferred to Demre, but pilgrims still visit Gemiler to pay homage to the saint who inspired the modern-day Santa Claus and visit the ruins of the ancient church

Palmyra before the destruction of ISIL ???????? Syria

An oasis in the Syrian desert, north-east of Damascus, Palmyra contains the monumental ruins of a great city that was one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. From the 1st to the 2nd century, the art and architecture of Palmyra, standing at the crossroads of several civilizations, married Graeco-Roman techniques with local traditions and Persian influences.

Following the capture of Palmyra in Syria, ISIL was reported as not intending to demolish the city's World Heritage Site (while still intending to destroy any statues deemed 'polytheistic'). On 27 May 2015, ISIL released an 87-second video showing parts of the apparently undamaged ancient colonnades, the Temple of Bel and the Roman theatre. On 27 June 2015, however, ISIL demolished the ancient Lion of Al-lāt statue in Palmyra. (It has since been restored, and is in storage in a Damascus museum until it can be determined that the statue can be safely returned to Palmyra.) Several other statues from Palmyra reportedly confiscated from a smuggler were also destroyed by ISIL. On 23 August 2015, it was reported that ISIL had blown up the 1st-century Temple of Baalshamin. On 30 August 2015, ISIL demolished the Temple of Bel with explosives. Satellite imagery of the site taken shortly after showed almost nothing remained. (wikipedia)

Why People Stopped Going To This Church | Ancient Ruin Italy

There is beauty in disrepair. Decay and flaws seem to offer a much-needed contrast in a modern world that is placing so much value on prosperity and perfection. But in this video, we will be seeking aesthetics in an abandoned building and symmetry in ruins. Usually, in a church, there is not only the evidence of transience but also the renewal of life. And in this particular church somewhere in rural Italy, you can experience both – but raw and first-hand. Join our journey in today's episode! #urbex #abandonedplaces #bwturbex

10 Most Impressive Roman Monuments Still Standing

Check out all the places seen in this video:

At its zenith, the Roman Empire stretched from Morocco and Portugal in the west all the way to Egypt and Armenia in the east. Founded in 27 BC, the empire and its later continuation finally collapsed in 1453 AD when the great city of Constantinople was lost to the Ottomans. Due to the vast territory it encompassed and the incredible number of years it endured, the Roman Empire left behind a host of impressive monuments. While their heyday has long gone, these now act as important historical landmarks and popular tourist attractions.

10 Most Impressive Monuments of Ancient Egypt - Travel Video

One of the world’s greatest civilizations, the Ancient Egyptians ruled over the lower reaches of the Nile for millennia. After a unified kingdom arose around 3100 BC, a series of dynasties and pharaohs built ever-bigger pyramids and temples before falling to the Roman Empire in 30 BC. Many of the massive monuments were dedicated to various deities or the pharaohs themselves and were adorned with rich decorations. Such was the ingenuity and engineering prowess of the Ancient Egyptians, that many of these amazing ancient monuments are still standing today.

Persepolis – the ruins of the ancient capital of the Persian Empire, in Iran

In this video I made a short presentation of Persepolis, the ancient capital of the Persian Achaemenid Empire, located in Iran. It was built during the reign of Darius the Great, Xerxes I and Artaxerxes I. While the city is now in ruins, you can still admire the colossal buildings covered in relief sculptures of bulls, lions, mythical creatures, with enormous columns, and grand marble staircases. Today we can see here the ruins of the Apadana Hall, the Gate of All Nations, the Tachara Palace, the Hadish Palace, and many more.
