Morning in Athens smells like orange trees…

Did you know that orange is a hybrid between pomelo (25%) and mandarin (75%)? The orange is unknown in the wild state. It probably have originated in southeastern Asia and was first cultivated in China around 2500 BC. In Europe, citrus fruits were introduced by the crusaders in the 11th century, but the sweet orange was unknown until the beginnings of the 16th century, when Italian and Portuguese merchants brought orange trees into the Mediterranean.

The Parthenon is a temple on the Acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron. The construction was completed in 438 BC, but due to constant maintenance works it looks like it’s still under the construction.

Leaving the mainland – the Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal is a shipping canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Aegean Sea and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland. It is 6 kilometers long and only 21 meters wide at the base. Now it has little economic importance.

Charming streets and cozy cafés of Nafplio

Nafplio is a picturesque town in the Peloponnese in Greece. This ancient town was an important seaport in the Middle Ages. Nowadays it’s a popular day or weekend destination for Athenians in the wintertime.

The Greek Orthodox Church maintains many traditions practiced in the ancient Church, especially in the churches which the Apostles founded in the Balkans and the Middle East during the first century A.D. Greek Orthodox, unlike the Catholic Church, have no Pope and hold the belief that Christ is the head of the Church.

Stunning landscapes of Mycenae

Greek myths assert that Mycenae was founded by Perseus, son of Danaë and the god Zeus. Mycenae was continuously inhabited from the Early Neolithic period. In the second millennium BC, Mycenae was one of the major centers of the Greek civilization, a military stronghold which dominated much of southern Greece. The period of Greek history is called Mycenaean.

 Tomb of Agamemnon

This impressive tomb (like from the Prometheus movie, isn’t it?) was constructed during the Bronze Age. It used to be richly decorated, but the segments of the columns and architraves were removed by Lord Elgin in the early nineteenth century and are now held by the British Museum…
