(Free Press Release) I think there is no need to represent Greece as the birthplace of gods and heroes. Similarly, there is no need to describe beauty and indescribable attractiveness of Greece. Greece attracts, fascinates, envelops with hin strands of ancient myths, which are reflected in everything around, whether it is architecture, sculpture or excursions texts for tourists from around the world. Traditionally, Greece is represented exceptionally in the light of Olympus shining and its inhabitants. A huge number of omnifarious true stories and fictions can be heard about Greece, about its cultural monuments and history. Tours in Greece are able to acquaint you with wonderful myths and legends, assuring of believability of gods and goddesses, heroes and monsters defeated by them existence. But at the same time, Greece is the keeper of an ancient tradition. More than two thousand years Greece confesses Orthodoxy. The Apostle Paul brought christianity to the territory of modern Greece (Hellas). He also founded one of the first Christian communities in Greece in Ancient Corinth, to which he then wrote his "Epistle to the Corinthians". Here he was judged for preaching Christianity and then acquitted. The Apostle John the Theologian on the island Patmos wrote the Book of Revelation (in Greek - the Apocalypse). Fortunately, many tours to Greece include a visit to ancient holy places.
Journey to Greece strikes with such a strange neighborhood. Greek Orthodox churches rise near temples of pagan gods. At times of the Byzantine Empire, ancient culture has lost its significance, paganism is eradicated. Greece became an important center of monasticism. There are kept lots of miracle-working icons, frescoes, manuscripts, rare antique books in monasteries of Greece. The nature around sacred places makes an ineffable impression. Sometimes it so amazing, how a monastery could be built on a sheer cliff. Many abodes are open to everyone who wants to contact the relics of Orthodox Greece.
