  • Came specially for the second time. Rarely found the harmony of history, grandeur, solitude and tranquility. It is always calm, you can submit a Nemejskogo lion and Herakles and plunge into the history of ancient Greece, away from the tourist crowds. Range of fully Distillery, where you can taste the wine.

  • When Greeks were having sports that time...awesome
  • One of the oldest stadia of Greece in a very good shape, a stadium where the Nemean Games took place, older games than the Olympic ones.
  • The stadium itself was a bit disappointing because it was just a plain surface without many archeological specialties. The tunnel, where you can see the names of people who won the races in ancient times, carved into the stone, is more exciting; however, it is hard to tell which names were carved 2000 years ago and which of them have been recently applied by tourists.
  • The 2016 Nemean Games were fantastic. I highly recommend that everyone attend and compete in 2020.
  • Amazing site
