The start of Western civilization

Greece is one of the oldest countries with evidence putting it back even before 1400 B.C. It is situated in southeast part of Europe, and landlocked in the north by Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania. The country is found at the center-point where Europe, Asia and Africa meet. Since ancient times Greece has been known as Hellas and is today an extremely popular destination because of its rich history and beautiful nature. Because of the long history of the country, Greece is looked upon as a start of western civilization.

Heritage of the ancients

Like mentioned before, Greece is positioned at a multi-cultural crossroad that influenced the architecture, art, food and much more of how the country looks today. Many UNESCO sites can be visited on the mainland and surrounding islands. There are over 2000 islands scattered around Greece, but probably one of the most visited is Crete and Rhodes.
