The legend of the name and the birth of Kos will take you on a journey. Learn about the mix of architectural spectrums found in multicultural Kos. Admire the Plane Tree of Hippocrates where it is said that the father of Western Medicine used to heal.

Nice idea, it could be better developed. The texts contained repetitions and spelling errors, the sites to be seen were not easily identifiable and above all it was not possible to go back in the quizzes once a step was skipped. Too bad about these little things, because it could be a compelling alternative for teens and young people.

Nice simple puzzles will send you a maximum of 5 to 6 minutes walking each time to the most beautiful archaeological sites of Kos. In the meantime you walk past nice shops and cafes to take a break or to browse around. It is a pity that it says from 7.50 euros if this is actually from 15 euros. Bit on the expensive side, for 10 puzzles and a simple app.
