Greece by Night

This is a fascinating picture, depicting Greece by night. The major cities, i.e. Athens, Salonika, Patra, Iraklion and many more, together with the biggest highways of the country are clearly seen from this space picture. On the other hand, rural areas are hidden in the darkness of the night. Mount Athos, the monastic community, located in the North of the country, near Salonika, is hidden, since the 20 monasteries and the countless hermitages have no electricity.
