The entire complex of towers, gates, ramparts, etc., together with the Castle of San Giovanni and Kotor Old Town is part of UNESCO World Heritage since 1979. Unfortunately, Kotor Fortress has been damaged by several severe earthquakes but also because of erosion. If you plan to climb up St. John’s Hill in order to reach the Fortress, be very careful and watch your steps.
Kotor’s Castle of San Giovanni is one of the must-see places. That is why I wanted to capture its beauty, waiting for the moment when the sun was setting gently, illuminating the mountain with warm light. The composition would not be the same without the rain clouds, covering St. John Hill.
What a colorful mosaic… That’s what I said when I saw the fantastic panorama view of the Mount Lycabettus in Athens. This photo was taken from the famous Akropolis and you can see the hill, surrounded by bright colored buildings, typical for the capital of Greece. Personally, I was most amazed by the fact, that there’s a hill in the center of a capital city. Mount Lycabettus is a really unique formation and if you still haven’t visited the charming capital of Greece, I recommend you to do it soon.
With its 277 meters, Lycabettus Hill is the tallest hill in the capital of Greece. That’s why, when you go at the top, you can see some of the Athens’ most popular monuments – the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium. When you climb the Lycabettus Hill, you will see the charming St. George’s church, built in the 19th century. Best thing is that you could continue enjoying the view on your way down.
The Acropolis view was the first one which greet us in Athens. This hill with remains of Parthenon temple is visible from almost every point of the city. The Acropolis of Athens is situated on a rock that rises around 150m above sea level. If you’ve been to the capital of Greece, you know how stunning it is to see it from anywhere, day and night.
