Kos is known as the birthplace of Hippocrates, the father of medicine. It is the third largest of the Dodecanese islands with a rich archaeological interest and natural beauty. Kos is highly preferred by the young crowds given the vivid nightlife in the capital. At first sight the island gives the impression of a large city dominated by numerous hotel complexes and high buildings.
However, a walk at the center reveals all the treasures of Kos starting from the medieval castle, the plane tree of Hippocrates and other ancient remains. Equally interesting villages are found in the beautiful surrounds of Kos like the mountainous village of Zia located in the centre of the island. Some great facilities are found in Kardamena, one of the most popular resorts in Kos.
