Rhodes (Rodos) is the fourth largest Greek island that is located in the south – eastern part of the Aegean Sea. It is known as the “island of the knights”, “pearl of the Mediterranean”, “island of roses” and as the location of the famous Colossus of Rhodes that was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The island has been inhabited since Neolithic times and has appeared before the year 3000 BC. The immigrants from Crete established settlement on Rhodes around 1550 BC during the Mycenaean dominance in the Aegean Sea. The myth about founding of the island is very poetic. Rhodes came out of the sea due to the God of the sun – Helios. Fascinated by its beauty he was constantly flattering his favorite island by golden rays of sun blessing it and his every blessing turned into a rose. That’s why it has name “Island of Roses”.
