Archäologen haben unter der St. Nicholas-Kirche in der türkischen Stadt Demre eine Gruft gefunden und vermuten, dass dort der Nikolaus begraben liegt.
An intact tomb has been found underneath Saint Nicholas Church, in the Demre district of Turkey's south-west province of Antalya. Demre was built on the ruins of Myra, where St Nicholas was thought to have lived in the 4th Century. Until now, the bones of St Nicholas were believed to be in Bari, Italy. […]
"The temple on the ground of the church is in good condition," he told Turkey's Hurriyet newspaper. "We believe that it has received no damage so far. But it is hard to enter it because there are stones with motifs on the ground. These stones should be scaled one by one and then removed."
He also said that during a study of old documents they had found notes saying the bones taken to Bari had belonged to another priest.
