The Treasures of Olympia
Olympia is an ancient place at the roots of Hellenism and of our modern world. From Olympia comes one of the first recorded calendars of history, the 'Olympiad' calendar. Today the ceremony of the Olympic flame is held at Olympia, marking the beginning of each new Olympic Game. Inhabited since thousands of years, it is the home to innumerable treasures and ripe with history.

Ancient Greece was not only a center of culture and arts, but also led the way in the sciences and the development of new applications and methods in technology. Only in the last few decades have we begun to understood the fragments of ancient technology which we discovered. At the 'Archimides' museum in Olympia, you can discover them too.
