MAGICAL AND MAGNIFICENT ROCKY FORMATIONS
MAGICAL AND MAGNIFICENT ROCKY FORMATIONS This breathtaking landscape is situated in Thessaly, Greece, being famous for the most dramatic location. This absolute isolation enables people with finding peace and harmony. Since 1988 Meteora, the Complex of Eastern Orthodox Monasteries, has been on a UNESCO World Heritage List. The rocks are monastery-topped perfection that rises from the plain in the form of towers. They have been a place of pilgrimage for centuries, some of them even from 14th century. However, a small number of monks and nuns reside there and only six monasteries are active today. Not only is this natural phenomenon impressive for religious people, but for non-religious as well, as it offers variety of activities, such as walking, hiking, climbing, cycling, and so on. Sunsets are fabulous, creating shades of different colours, delicate orange, red and pink, as if God takes away the most delicious and beautiful orange from people for a couple of hours. Those who appear on the same spot at dawn are blessed by God, He takes back the wonderful orange to the people at this sacred place, providing them with the warmth, fantastic sceneries and spectacular views of pillar-like formations rising in the sky. Even when clouds come down secretly, they are welcomed by the fog and they together play the game in which they strive to beat each other, spreading a silver veil over the entire area. After Mount Athos, which is considered the most sacred place in Greece, the Meteora Complex is the second one.
