Kokino
Macedonia, Staro Nagoricane (municipality)

<p>Thousands of years ago, people in this area watched the sky. Proof of this is the megalithic observatory in Kokino, dating back to 1800 BC. e. during the Early Bronze Age and is located on the top of a mountain known as Tatikzhev Kamen. Here, prehistoric peoples performed ancient rites and rituals, and also in this place they monitored the cycles of the Sun and Moon and measured time.</p><br><p>The observatory is located on a neovolcanic hill, the rocks of which were formed as a result of the hardening of lava that came out of volcano crater. The cracks formed during this time made it possible to mark the positions of the rising of the Sun and the Moon at the equinoxes and solstices, as well as the places of their deviation.</p><br><p>Although it was opened in 2001, this pristine observatory has earned its place on the list NASA's most significant ancient observatories in the world, in which Kokino ranks 4th.</p><br><p>It is believed that the tribal leaders had a privileged position to observe the sky. To feel the connection with the ancient Gods in which these people believed, it is enough to simply sit on the thrones carved into the rocks on which these elders sat and greet the first ray that illuminates you during sunrise.</p>
