Parnitha  

 


Parnitha - Attica (Greece)


Parnitha. Mount Parnitha is inextricably linked to Athens and its history. Parnitha is a mountain in the Attica department. This mountain is located north of Athens, and its highest point is Karambola, at 1413 meters (4,636 feet). Parnitha is completely overgrown with all kinds of pine trees, therefore also called the "lungs of Athens." Parnitha has multiple peaks, and one of these summits is the casino Mont Parnes' which is also accessible by cable car.

Parnitha is stunning in its beauty and there is also the namesake national park protected by Natura 2000. In winter it almost always snows here, and the terrain changes to a landscape reminiscent of Switzerland or Austria.
