Kos is divided into two parts, the northern and the southern. The northern part is mountainous, while the southern part is more flat and fertile. The highest peak is Dikeos, at 1,214 m. The island is surrounded by the Aegean Sea, making it a popular destination for sailing and swimming.

Kos has a long and rich history. It was first settled by the Dorians in the 11th century BC and later became part of the Persian Empire. In the 4th century BC, it was conquered by Alexander the Great and became part of the Hellenistic world.
