Natural attractions of Greece
Greece is mostly associated with ancient monuments, democracy and Greek mythology, which are issues that are often discussed in language or history classes. Not many people know how beautiful and rich in nature this country is. Most people only know the most popular sights and attractions, but here we will try to prove that there is a bit more to Greece that is worth checking out.
Nature in Greece is directly related to the sea-mountainous terrain. One of the most characteristic animals that can be found here, which is also one of the symbols of Greece, is the mountain chamois. To protect this animal, several national parks have been created, of which there are a total of twelve throughout the country. They are home to some of the country's biggest natural attractions, which attract more and more tourists every year.
In one of the parks is located Olympus – a mountain massif extremely important in Greek mythology, the home of the gods. Mountain massifs occurring in the area of practically the whole country, with variously coloured flora, add variety to the Greek natural wonders. The mountains, which turn into a cliff coastline, with its wide-ranging beaches, are another attraction; the pleasant landscape reflects the atmosphere of the whole of Greece.
Mountains, beaches, sea, islands – these are very important of the tourist attractions of Greece. Thousands of years old cultural heritage is mainly in the architectural monuments – the Acropolis, the Parthenon, the remains of the ancient Greek population, and the temple of Zeus Olympios. And these are some of the most interesting historical attractions of this kind.
