      Olympus

There were times when gods lived close to people, walk with them on the same earth, breathe the same air. And, of course, they chose a special place for their habitat. A new generation of Olympic gods had won the battle with the Titans for the right to live on Olympus. Goddess of time Horae guarded the gates of Olympus. Gods loved watching the people and wars, some sympathized to the Greeks, the other to Trojans. Inspired by the battles, they often come down and fought on the side of their favorites.

Palaces on Olympus were built by one-eyed Cyclops. Their mysterious tribe was released from the realm of the dead Tartarus by Zeus. They gave him power over the thunder and lightning. And Hephaestus in his workshop on Olympus forged decorations for the palaces.
Windows or the palace of Zeus and Hera were drawn to Athens, Thebes, Sparta, Corinth, Argos and Mycenae. Homer wrote that there was no wind, there was no rain, nor snow near the residence of Gods.

And now anyone can touch the majestic beauty, peace and cool tranquility of Olympus. This unique mountain consists of 52 peaks, the highest is almost always enveloped by clouds. The wonderful nature of this mountain has over 1700 species of animals and plants, some of which can not be found anywhere else. This mountain was declared as a National Park in 1938.

Greeks and tourists organize their feast at the foot of Olympus imitating the Olympians, only instead of ambrosia we drink excellent Greek wine and eat meat cooked on the coals. Someone likes secluded walks and reflections by picking mushrooms, berries and fruits, someone likes to swim in the invigorating sources or in waterfalls, after which you feel reborn, and someone is happy to spend hours watching the dizzying view from Mount Olympus to the ground.
