Kos is the island of Hippocrates, considered to be the founder of modern medicine. A crossroad of civilizations, from neolithic times to the end of 20th century colonialism, Kos bears proudly impressive remnants of wonderful ancient monuments as well as many Italian neo-colonial buildings, which in fact still dominate central spots of the city with their distinctive and beautiful architectural style.
