    In Greek mythology, Mt. Olympus was home to the Twelve Gods of the ancient world, and also the set-up for the most popular mythical stories.

    It is the place where the King of the Gods, Zeus, released his thunderbolts onto humanity, as a sign of anger or wrath.

    Nowadays the mountain, which is the tallest one in Greece, is a darling for hiking and climbing expeditions.
