This is why some Romanians like to refer to the city as ‘the other capital’

The original Kori (young lady) of Veria is a bronze statuette that was discovered in the early 20th century and dates back to the fifth century BC. Now it is an exhibit at the Archaeological Museum of Munich as the «Mädchen von Beröa». A much bigger replica stands in one of the main squares of Veria. It is a statue of a naked woman who resembles the ancient goddess Venus (Aphrodite) and has a headscarf on her head, like the one that the women of the town used to have at that time.
