Νότια του Βασιλείου της Δανιμαρκίας

Greece has been one of my dream destinations since I was a kid. Not because of their dreamy beaches, not the food, but because of the mythology. As a lover of astronomy, it was inevitable for me to read all about Greek mythology that most of the Northern Hemisphere’s constellations are named after.

I told the stories to the visitors while I was working at an astronomy observatory. Most of the constellations don’t really look like what they are supposed to, but some are, like Orion or Hercules. Greek Mythology is so broad, it would take a lifetime to understand the meaning and remember all the Gods and others. Here I named some of the most important gods and stories in Greek Mythology. If this doesn’t motivate you to travel to Greece, I don’t know what will!
