Serene, spiritual, magical, mystical, extraordinary, breathtaking, immense, inspiring, impressive. These are only some of the words people very often use in an effort to describe Meteora monasteries. Any trip to Meteora offers the visitors unique experiences of nature’s grandeur in conjunction with history, architecture and man’s everlasting desire to connect with the Divine. From the early Christian times, the steep cliffs of Meteora were regarded as a perfect place to achieve absolute isolation. To find peace and harmony and, thus, to support mankind’s’ eternal struggle for spiritual ascension.
Meteora with the 6 active monasteries is truly an inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations with these ancient monasteries occupying their picks. Be prepared that making a trip here is much more than a visit to an awesome landscape. It is more like a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. In essence, Meteora today has become a preservation ark for the 2000-year-old Christian Orthodox creed. Today, out of initially 24 monasteries that used to exist only 6 remain active for people to visit. Discover the things to do and what to see while at Meteora!
