Meteors are breathtaking monasteries built on high cliffs. Scientists believe that these stone pillars were formed about 60 million years ago! There are 6 Greek Orthodox monasteries (2 female and 4 male). This place is the second Orthodox center of Christians in Eastern Europe after Mount Athos. You will certainly admire Byzantine art and incredibly beautiful views! At the end of the tour we will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner in the local village.

This, of course, may seem complicated. Especially if there is no experience and only a foreign language of a school level. But this is only at first glance…
