The Meteora (literally in Greek middle of the sky, suspended in the air or in the heavens above) is a formation of immense monolithic pillars & hills-like huge rounded boulders which dominate the local area. In the 9th century AD, an ascetic group of hermit monks moved up to the ancient pinnacles. they were the first people to inhabit Metéora since the Neolithic Era. They lived in hollows and fissures in the rock towers, some as high as 1800 ft (550m) above the plain. More than 20 monasteries were built, beginning in the 14th century. Six remain today.

More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
