The wondrous Mount Olympus, Greece’s highest peak, is one of the country’s main attractions. It not only has a wide range of ecological diversity–with more than 1,700 types of plants and many diverse animal species–but is of course rich in history and culture as well. The mountain was a central setting in Greek mythology, as it was the site of Zeus’ throne and the dwelling of the Olympian Gods.
Every year, Olympus attracts thousands of tourists, drawing them in with its awe-inspiring beauty and extraordinary high peaks. You can probably see why so many believed this mountain was the home of the gods.
