Pergamum! Alright, more history lessons. Pergamum is one of the ancient Greek cities which was later given to the Romans. Pegamum had the third hospital ever, but the first one with Physiothreapy and Psychotherapy. It has was home to the world second largest library,containing 200,000 scrolls, and only second to the Great Library in Alexandria. The city was known to have the Eighth wonder of the world, but when the Germans excavated it, they took it back to Germany. It was some sort of Temple. Tomorrow we are off to Epheses (more ruins) which apparently is the best preserved ancient Roman city ├Żn the world.
