Before you visit the archeological sites and museums in Thessaloniki, Pella and Vergina, it is important for you to have some little information about the histories of the areas. Vergina, for example, was once the Royal Capital of Macedonia. Vergina was not always known by that name as it was first referred to as Aiges. An oracle gave the city that name after suggesting that it should also be the location where the city should be build. It is also essential to understand that the region was not always as peaceful as it is now. There were a lot of significant conflicts in the period between 700 and 450 BC. The kingdom, however, slowly stabilized and established itself as a key city in the Ancient Greek world. Vergina has a lot of rich history mainly because of the conflicts that later led to its establishment. For example, later in 336 B.C, Philip the Second was killed in Vergina. Two years later, Alexander the Great started his campaign of taking over the world in Vergina. As a result, the archeological sites and museums of Vergina hold some very important historical elements of the ancient Greece. For example, visitors who go to these sites can view the famous Royal Tomb of Philip the Second, as well as, tombs of other Macedonian leaders and kings. Also available for view includes various religious artifacts, gold burial artifacts that were used in the past and other everyday items from the rich Macedonian history.

Pella is also an important part of the Macedonian history because it was also once the capital of Macedonia after Philip the Great moved it from Vergina during the first half of 400 B.C. soon; Pella became an important military and cultural center for all Macedonians. Pella is also important historically because it was also the birthplace of Alexander the Great. The whole area covers about 4000 ha and is filled with historically important archeological sites where you can also view the old construction and building practices and materials from ancient Macedonian cultures. There are lots of fallen structures made of varying mosaics and beautiful marble. The museum is also not far away from the site and you can get a quick glimpse of what ancient Macedonia looked like.
