After leaving Dion, we will go to Litochoro, a village built on the east side of Mount Olympus, that is the highest mountain of Greece. Its highest peak Mytikas or Pantheon rising to 2.918 meters (9.570 feet). According to Greek mythology, Mount Olympus was the house of the Twelve Olympian Gods, while in 1938 Olympus became the first location ever to have been declared National Park in Greece, with the aim to protect its natural wealth. Olympus does not constitute the part of a mountain range, but form on its own a circular mountain.
