I bet that you have never heard of Meteora. Unless you are Greek, of course. Here are a bit of my images from the place – I visited it for the first time when I was 10 years old.

This time, I was determined to make some “WOW” shots – or at least, some passable ones, given the time that I had – less than an hour. Since it is Bored Panda and you are craving to see some amazing images and not read a bunch of pages, I’ll not trouble you with lots of info about what that is, where it is and other stuff.

The main thing you need to know about Meteora is that it is a complex of seven medieval Orthodox Christian monasteries built on top of sandstone pillars located in the middle of mainland Greece.

If you want to get the full info about the place photo tips included – visit my blog.

View of some of the monasteries at Meteora – there is no other place like it

What you can see from one of the terraces of the monasteries. They all have amazing view

The stairs to Agios Nikolaos monastery – at Meteora you’re gonna climb a lot of them – the view is worth it, though

Meteora at night – don’t ask – it took me an hour to get an image right – exposure time: almost 5 minutes

Definitely bring your tripod and get a room with a view – you won’t regret it!

Agios Nikolaos church from the outside – taking pictures inside the monasteries is forbidden

All monasteries used to be built using ropes and baskets. Today those are used to bring in supplies.

One of the most spectacular of the monasteries – Varlaam
