"Olympia Arhea and Modern" Top 5 Page for this destination Olympia by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Olympia Travel Guide: 158 reviews and 510 photos

The Olympic flame of the modern-day Olympic Games is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror at the restored Olympia stadium and then transported by a torch to the place where the games are held. When the modern Olympics came to Athens in 2004, the men's and women's shot put competition was held at the restored stadium.

    A very thorough visit of Olympia! When I visited the museum was closed and I was not very excited by the site. Your page gives a completely different figure of Olympia! Superb page, thanks!

    Sergey, another gorgeous page of yours. So the Ghost of Olympia seems to be the famous Sergey who has drunken too much Anisovka. *winkygrin*

    interesting to read how and where it all started, but I am sure, Heracles is revolving in his grave when seeing what happened to his idea nowadays !!
