Walking in snow at Parnassos mountain. Located at the center of Greece, Parnassus is one of the biggest and most beautiful mountains of the country. Its highest part is Liakoura peak at 2.457 m. and Tsarkos (2.415 m.) and Gerontovrahos (2.389 m.) peaks follow. Mount Parnassus is a great area which extends to the municipalities of Boeotia, Phthiotis and Phocis.

Since 1938 a big part of the forest area of the mountain, has been declared as a National Park, which along with the one on Olympus were the first ones that were established in Greece. The Mountain of Apollo, as it also called, is known from the ancient times, as there are many myths connected to it.

According to Greek mythology, the mountain took its name from the hero Parnassus, who had built on the mountain a city that was ruined by Deucalion’s flood. Then, the citizens of the city, following the wolves’ howling, were led up the mountain slope in order to save themselves from the flood, where they built a new city that they named Lykoreia, which means the howling of the wolves.

Parnassus is a unique and special place, a wildlife shelter, while on its ground many endemic plants grow such as the Parnassian peony.
