The Vestnik Settlement in the vicinity of Anapa has become an archaeological Mecca this year.
      Researchers have discovered there unique remains of a temple complex of the Ancient Greek goddess Demeter. There are no other antique constructions of the kind in the territory of this country any more.
      The temple complex in Vestnik is 50 years older than the ancient Parthenon. It is the only well-preserved temple in the Northern Black Sea Coast.
      Archeologists assure that Demeter's sanctuary is not the only antique construction in these lands. Ancient Greek estates are scattered dozens of kilometers around.
      Forthcoming excavations will show if archeologists can confirm their assumptions.
