Melissani Cave of the nymphs

  1. 1. Melissani is one of the most famous natural sights in Kefalonia, Greece.
  2. 2. It is an underground lake, which was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Yiannis Petrohelos.
  3. 3. In 1953 during the earthquakes the cave roof fell in, creating amazing light displays on the cave walls. În 1953 în timpul cutremurelor acoperisul a cazut în pestera, dand luminii posibilitatea de a patrunda in pestera si de a crea efecte uimitoare pe peretii acesteia.
  4. 4. It may be very hot outside but in the cave it is always cool and damp. There are boats waiting to show you round the lake. Afara poate fi foarte cald, dar in pestera este întotdeauna rece si umed. Barcile asteapta turistii pentru o plimbare in jurul lacului.

  7. 7. However, the locals were aware of it's existence much, much earlier as a shepherdess had gone missing and fallen in whilst looking for a sheep. Cu toate acestea, localnicii stiau de existenta acesteia cu mult, mult mai devreme, atunci cand o ciobanita a disparut si a cazut in pestera în
  8. 8. The water reach a depth of 39 meter. The cave is 160 m long and 40 m wide Apa ajunge la o adâncime de 39 de metri. Pestera este de 160 m lungime si 40 m latime.
  9. 9. In the 1963 excavations, Marinatos found a clay figurine depicting the god Pan, a disc showing Pan surrounded by dancing nymphs and a fragment showing the figure of a woman in relief who is believed to be the nymph Melissanthe (from which the lake name is derived) who fell in love with Pan. Sadly she drowned in the lake when he rejected her.
  10. 10. În 1963 cu ocazia unor sapaturi,s-a gasit o figurina de de lut reprezentând zeul Pan, un disc care il arata pe Pan înconjurat de nimfe dansand.Un fragment reprezinta silueta unei femeie în relief, care este considerata a fi nimfa Melissanthe (de unde si numele pesterii), care s-a indragostit de Pan. Din pacate ea s-a aruncat in lac inecandu-se, deoarece a fost respinsa de zeu.
