Photographer's Note

Probably this picture will have no success but I like to show the places that are not known on TE.
There were a few images from Heraklea but many years ago. I love ancient ruins so I was glad we had the place in our trip schedule.

It is literally the street art as it is an ancient mosaic floor.

Famous for its dazzling mosaics, ancient theater and Roman baths, Heraclea is the most vividly preserved city from the surviving Ancient Macedonian Empire in the country.

Heraclea Lyncestis was an ancient Macedonian city situated 2 km south of the present-day town of Bitola, Republic of Macedonia. It was founded by Philip II of Macedon in the middle of the 4th century BC, after he had conquered the surrounding region of Lyncestis and incorporated it into his kingdom of Macedon. The city was named in honor of the mythological Greek hero Heracles. The epithet Lyncestis means "the Land of the Lynx" in Greek.

I have, as usual, a bit of the problem, what to show, I visited quite many places. So the pictures are taken at random. And not many days left before the next adventure :).
