Ancient Nikopolis

Ancient Nikopolis is a Roman city built in 30 B.C by the Roman Emperor Octavian, who built the city to celebrate his victory against Antony and Cleopatra in the naval battle of Aktio. Nowadays, exist the ancient walls, the ancient theater, the Roman Conservatory (Odeum), Nymphaio, Thermae and Smyrthula. The modern archaeological museum of Nikopolis hosts two exhibitions: the first refers to the birth and evolution of the majestic Roman and Early Christian Nicopolis, while the second is dedicated to the private life of these two periods. There is also the old Archaeological Museum of Nikopolis which hosts collections of architectural parts and sculptures from the site of Nikopolis and funeral gifts from the cemetery of the wider area Nikopolis.
