Comments

In Greek mythology, Zeus was the son of Cronus and Rhea and the highest-ranking god among the Olympian Gods. He was god of the sky and thunder and his attributes included thunder, the lightning bolt, the septer, and the eagle. Zeus (in Greek Dias) was the ruler of Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece and the home of the gods. In 1981 UNESCO declared Mount Olympus an “International Biosphere Reserve” and in 1987 it was declared a National Park of Greece.
