Time-lapse in Mt. Athos


autor:Irinel Cirlanaru

Athos is a mountain and peninsula in Macedonia, Greece. A World Heritage Site and autonomous polity in the Hellenic Republic, Athos is home to 20 stavropegial Eastern Orthodox monasteries under the direct jurisdiction of the patriarch of Constantinople. Today Greeks commonly refer to Mount Athos as the „Holy Mountain” (Greek: Άγιον Όρος, Agion Oros [ˈaʝon ˈoros]). In Classical times, while the mountain was called Athos, the peninsula was called Akté (Ἀκτὴ) (sometimes Acte or Akte).
