Jak nazwa wskazuje, jest miejscem ciekawym przyrodniczo. Stąd bowiem wypływają źródła, które zaopatrują wyspę w wodę słodką, a więc źródlaną. Miejsce jest bardzo urokliwe i przyjemne latem, bowiem liczna tu zieleń nadaje przyjemny klimat i zieloną, bardzo naturalną kolorystykę miejsca. Miejsce nie do końca jest dziełem natury. Włoscy inżynierowie zbudowali tunel transportujący wodę z naturalnego źródła.
The Archaeological Museum on the island of Kos is small. Compared to the National in Athens, it is a very small part, maybe that's why it is a climatic place.
The entrance itself takes visitors back to Hellenistic times. At the entrance there is an atrium, i.e. an internal closed space, two storeys high. The floor is filled with an original mosaic depicting the original one from the turn of the 2nd and 3rd century BC. depicting Hippocrates with Asclepius.
Straight ahead are the sculptures found during archaeological excavations, all unearthed during the Italian occupation, for example the atrium, i.e. the inner courtyard with a mosaic of Hippocrates and Asclepius, all surrounded by statues, examples of which are:
1. sculpture of Dionysus from 150 AD
2. sculpture of Asclepius from the 2nd century AD.
3. sculpture depicting Artemis with a dog sitting next to him from 150 CE
The construction design was drawn up by Italian architects in 1934. Two years later, the building was erected, which today resembles fascist monumentality, although the entrance refers to the ancient style. Kos was in fact under Italian occupation until the end of World War II. Throughout the war, it housed the headquarters of the Archaeological Service, which in 1999 were moved to another building to create the Archaeological Museum.
On the first floor of the building of the archaeological museum there are exhibits from the Mycenaean and geometric period depicting bas-reliefs on marble plaques, vases of various sizes and purposes, and everyday objects.
When visiting the museum, you must pay attention to the most famous exhibit from Kos - a sculpture from the 4th century BC. depicting an unnaturally large man, according to the description of someone from a medical family. It is assumed that he personifies Hippocrates. The exhibit was found near the Roman odeon, located on the outskirts of the capital of the island of Kos.
