There is a Greek legend about the lost island of Atlantis. Over 10,000 years ago there was an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It was a perfect place, a paradise, where people were rich and powerful.
This was the land of Poseidon, god of the sea. Poseidon fell in love with Cleito and built a beautiful house for her. She had five twins – ten boys. They became the first rulers of Atlantis. Atlas was the first king.
People began slowly to change. They became greedy and wanted more and more things. Zeus decided to punish them. One day, there was a storm and the island sank. Atlantis disappeared.
Some people today think that it never existed. Other people go on journeys to find the lost paradise.
