A new (5th) edition of Mt Parnitha map.
Mt Parnitha has a symbolic value for the residents of the capital. The fir forest, the ravines, the National Park, the deer, its numerous springs lay out wildlife a breath's distance away from the crowded city. This is why the 2007 forest fire had a profound psychological impact on the Athenians. However the biggest mistake after a disaster is to say, the mountain is destroyed I will never go there again. Mt Parnitha after the fire is like a patient: it needs more love and care than before. Fortunately there are many citizens who love Mt Parnitha. And instead of abandoning it they have intensified their activities on the mountain. New trails were opened, others have been maintained and in many cases waymarking has been improved. All these changes have been recorded on the new updated 5th edition of the map.
