The peninsula of Athos on Khalkidhiki takes its name from the mountain which is situated at its end and rises steeply above the Aegean Sea (2030m). As it was the meeting place of monks since ancient times, it was named the Holy Mountain. In Mount Athos there are 20 monasteries, 12 small churches and hundreds of monastic cells. The Serbian monastery of Chilandar, located on the Holy Mountain, is turned into the center of spirituality, education, art and culture. In the beauty of monasticism, creativity has reached such an ascent as in no other Serbian monastery or city. The splendor of architecture, fascinating fresco painting, immense wealth of spoken and written word. The spiritual vertical of human self-existence.
