The focus of this online experience tour is Kokino, an archaeological site from the Bronze Age period and a prehistoric archaeo-astronomical observatory which gain the attention of scientists and media since the moment it was discovered in 2001. Whether you approach Kokino from Kumanovo or Kriva Palanka, the moment you see the craters from the small ancient dried volcanoes, you know that you’ve reached the Northeastern part of Macedonia.
Learn about local history
Archaeologically tested and astronomically proved, this advanced community which settled Kokino around 1800 BC, used very complicated mathematical equations for observing the sky and the celestial phenomena. We are very lucky they left marks around the stones and rock in the shape of markers while observing the rising of the sun during the summer and winter solstice, spring, fall equinox, and many other celestial phenomena in the time when they lived.
