ancient sunken city of Epidaurus

From the Acropolis in Athens to Lindos in Rhodes, Greece has a history spanning millennia and has countless offerings for all tourists to choose from, including the ancient underwater city of Epidaurus.

Few people know that there is a submerged ancient near Athens - Epidaurus. Arriving at Epidaurus, famous for the Ancient Theatre with its amazing acoustics, less than two hours away from Athens, ask about the location of the ancient sunken city of Epidaurus.

This sunken city is just two metres below sea level, and there you will see walls, foundations of buildings, amphorae of huge dimensions and paved sections sunken 1.5-2 metres below sea level, a few meters from the shore.

From a bird’s eye view, one can even see paved streets that were inhabited by the locals centuries ago. You can totally immerse yourself in the ambience and feel like an archaeologist as you swim over the area, looking down in the crystal clear waters.

Archaeologists and historical researchers propose that the area was possibly a trading post in ancient times.

YouTube channel Haanity captured an impressive video, allowing us to marvel at the sunken state from above. Or else the sunken “Atlantis” of Argolida, as he calls it.
