Dion, the religious center of ancient Macedonia, is today an archaeological park of exceptional beauty.
At the Dion Museum one can see a vast number of statues, vessels, coins and a unique find: the ‘hydraulis’ from the 1st century B.C., a musical instrument which was the forerunner of the church organ of the West.
