Cyprus, Limassol: Cyprus opens its first underwater archeological park, giving visitors a glimpse into history at one of the best-preserved ancient harbors in the eastern Mediterranean.

The now submerged harbor near the ancient city kingdom Amasas was built between 312/311 BC and 294 BC when Cyprus was the focus of the conflict between the two successors of Alexander the Great. .. It was probably built as a naval base due to its narrow entrance, but experts say the combination of commercial use cannot be rejected either.

Over the centuries, it has evolved into a natural coral reef where marine life flourishes.
