Cruise in Mountain Athos

Fascinating cruise by the ship begins in a bay of Uranopolis. The ship goes to the western coast of Athos peninsula where there is a unique orthodox monastic republic with exclusively man's

population which lives according to church canons and in the spirit of traditions of Byzantian times for almost 1000 years. From a deck of the ship tourists can admire a magnificent view of the monasteries constructed on abrupt slopes at the sea. From distance of 500 m it is possible to see eight of twenty operating monasteries and to admire the fine nature of peninsula. Cruise gives the chance to get acquainted with history and architecture of Athos. After excursion travelers have a possibility to take a rest in Uranopolis, near the border with the monastic state and swim for a while in pure waters of Aegean sea, or take a walk on quay and visit souvenir stores and to have dinner in one of coastal Greek taverns.
