Ancient Mycenae And Modern Nafplion

This time - visual debris from Peloponnese island, to be more precise, from Argolida. Mycenae according to legend built by Perseus and flourished in the period of Aegian civilization, currently represent ruins beautifully spreading in the mountainous location.
Nafplion, in its turn, is none other than the first capital of independent Greece in the 19th century. It's a very beautiful city and one of the main Greek ports. And in its mood it's very Italian!

Tomb of Atreus is one of the most interesting places in Mycenae. It's a dome-shaped construction, in ancient times its inner walls were covered with ormolu.

Mycenaean acropolis.

And excavations, excavations ...

Landscapes resemble Georgia and Italia

Have you ever seen a train of caterpillars?

Closer to Nafplion

And resembles the Crimea too...


The city is located at the foot of the mountain.

Cosy and beautiful
