Roots of Faith.
Light a candle, before the heavy gates of the monastery shut behind you. Let your eyes feast on the deep blue sea surrounding Mt. Athos, the Holy Mountain. Follow St. Paul’s footsteps around Thessaloniki, the city with the most important Byzantine churches. In Veroia you can see St. Paul’s Tribune [Bema], where he preached to the Nations, and in the small village of Kastania, the Icon of Panagia Soumela [Madonna at Melas’ place], the famous heirloom that refugees from Pontos [the Black Sea] brought with them. At Paeonia, Serres and Pella traditions of worship merge with nature — even at remote mountain tops one can hear the echo of the dialogue between God and man.

Sun & Sea.
The awe felt with the view from the highest summit in Greece explains why ancient Greeks considered Mt. Olympus the Throne of Zeus and Hera, Hermes and Aphrodite, Artemis and the other gods. Thousands of years later, with those deities lost in the distant past, climbing Mt. Olympus or other mountains in Central Macedonia is still a unique experience.
Try paragliding, skiing down the snow-covered slopes, trek along the footpaths, drink an aromatic herbal tea from local plants at the beautiful villages, enjoy the Mediterranean way of life – people here commune with nature, and enjoy the mountains and the sea whatever the season of the year.
Come to Central Macedonia and tour the four national parks, visit the gorges and caves, go fresh water fishing in the rivers and lakes and enjoy the energy and scents of Greek nature.
