What I can see

Mavris Petras Street ( = Black Stone’s St.) is an alley road in Ano Poli. Despite the fact it is a tranquil, picturesque and peaceful road, it is known by a paranormal dark urban legend.

What I can't see

The road is known due to a myth about a “time machine” located at the end of the street, deriving from a fiction story. According to this urban legend, when the city burned down in 1917, a crater with a big black metal stone was found, creating the dead-end alley. Since then, this alley opens a time gate every 15 days at midnight and whoever enters it, becomes lost. Of course, the reality is simple. The street was probably named as such because it was created on a very rocky area with many stones.
