As you spend more evenings at home, switch your usual bedtime stories with the legends of Zeus, Hera and Hades. After exploring the basics of Greek mythology, you will be better equipped to design your own Odyssey. 

These stories created other world temples, altars and palaces - many of which were discovered in modern Greece. Humans can connect to the world of gods and heroes in these five places.

Wish you a safe journey at the Poseidon Temple

Open sea lovers can visit the Poseidon Temple. Here you can enjoy a sunset across the Aegean and a walk along with the promenade restaurants in the promenade. The 60 m (200 ft) high marble monument is located in the southern tip of Attica (southern region of Greece). 

The sailors built the temple for Poseidon to ensure a safe haven. It was the last land the Athenians saw before they went to war and was the first thing they greeted when they returned.

The wind blows through the ruins of Knossos.

The Knossos Palace, built for King Minos of Crete, is a spacious room complex. The total number of rooms is over 1500. He built a ladder to house the Minotaur, a half-man, half-cow. The King deported the prisoners to the table, and you can imagine their fate. 

Minos kept the monster alive - distorting the conspiracy - Minotor is Minos' son and his wife, Pasiphae. The ruins of the majestic palace at Knossos can still be seen when you visit it. Pay special attention to the paintings of the bulls in it and also experience the beauty of the clay and murals. Visit the luxury palaces of the royal family and see the King's original throne.

Worship Athena at the Acropolis

The Acropolis, a mountain archaeological site built in the 5th century BC, is crowned in the skies of modern Athens. You can cut your neck in this rocky castle of mysterious monuments reminiscent of the Golden Age of Athens. Among them are Athena Nike's Temple and Parthenon. These beautiful white marble structures were dedicated to Athena, the patron and protector of the city, the goddess of wisdom.

The story of Athena's birth is illustrated by sculptures found in Parthenon. Before you go to the ruins, assemble your bearings at one of the best museums in the world, the Acropolis Museum.

See the houses of the 12 Greek gods.

Mount Olympus was like the Hollywood Hills in Greek mythology. Twelve Olympians, including Zeus, Apollo, Poseidon and Artemis, lived among its peaks. The gods held a council on the fate of man, and Hades, the underworld, once called.

True Mount Olympus is located between Macedonia and Sally. There are several endemic species of fauna and flora for this purpose and it is a famous national park. You can not see the King of the Gods, and you can go to the "Throne of Zeus", the highest mountain on the mountain. 
Keep an eye out for endangered mythical creatures such as the Balkan Chamois and the rare goat-antelope.
