Photo & Description
Picturesque Greek Rhodes is one of the most popular tourist destinations. Magnificent natural landscapes, gentle warm sea, rich cultural and historical heritage, as well as an abundance of interesting sights attract a huge number of travelers to the island every year.
In the city of Rhodes (the capital of the island), there is a magnificent park just 3 km from the center Rodini is the oldest landscape park in the world and one of the main attractions of the island. Accurate data on the time of the foundation of the park have not been found, but it is known that this beautiful park was very popular with the Romans (perhaps they were its founders), who, moreover, led a water supply through it. The remains of Roman aqueducts can still be seen in the park. During the Middle Ages, Rodini Park was popular among the Knights Hospitallers. The central part of the park was landscaped during the reign of the Italians in Rhodes.
Rodini Park is famous for its coolness, so relevant in the hot summer, and a cozy atmosphere of peace and quiet. The abundance of trees (cypresses, pines, etc.), small lakes with swans and lilies, a waterfall, wooden bridges, narrow paths along which peacocks walk slowly, and many turtles, create a special flavor and a feeling of complete unity with nature. Children will surely love the mini-zoo and the great playground.
In the park, about a 10-minute walk from the entrance along the canal, you can see an ancient tomb, considered the tomb of the Ptolemies and dating back to the Hellenistic period.
