Pergamon in the third century BC was one of the most prosperous cities of the ancient world.
Known today as Bergama. Located 100 km. north of Izmir. Attalid Dynasty assigned the city as a capital for their kingdom named as Pergamon Kingdom. Pergamon has also a biblical importance. Mentioned in the book of revelation in the New Testament among the seven churches of Asia Minor. The city was known as the city where the throne of Satan is located.
Pergamon had a huge altar dedicated Zeus, had the second largest library of the ancient world after the library in Alexandria, a huge temple dedicated to Roman Emperor Trajan, the steepest theater of the ancient world, a huge famous ancient hospital where Doctor Galenos served.
Recently as a part of private project, acropolis of Pergamon is recreated by Clemens Poblotzki. This is a very successful one for travelers to visualize the size of this magnificent ancient site. For more information about this project, visit http://www.pergamon.secondpage.de/index_en.html
