Meteora Monasteries (Greek Μονές Μετεώρων) – the largest monastery complex located on the tops of the rocks, is considered the most significant center of Orthodoxy and icon painting on the planet after the Holy Mount Athos. The monastic state was formed around the 10-th century and at the end of the 20-th century monasteries were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Today only 6 out of 24 once functioning monasteries: 4 are male and 2 – female. Each monastery located on a cliff top hangs over a precipice and contemplating this miracle of the world – you feel yourself soaring physically, and most importantly – spiritually, and the beauty of the monastery buildings allows you to abandon the vain, worldly and think about the rational, the good, the eternal.
