Greece Photo & Information

Greece is situated at the most southern part of Europe. Borders with Turkey to its East, Bulgaria, FYROM and Albania to its North. Greece is a strategic crossroad between the East and the West.

The cultural heritage of Greece is 4.000 years old and is portrayed in the archeological sites and the monuments of a distinct architecture and charm. Visitors have the opportunity to make a unique “journey” through the rare “mosaic” of the country’s historic and cultural memory that highlights the manifold sides of the Greek civilization from the Ancient Greece to modern times.

Greece, despite its small area, has a particularly rich natural environment, a rare geomorphology of sharp contrasts and many places of high ecological value. The indented coastlines, the imposing mountains, the caves and canyons, the lakes, the rivers, the biotopes and the unique ecosystems make up landscapes of exceptional beauty throughout the country. That is why Greece is a perfect destination for the lovers of ecotourism. Greek cuisine is of great interest, since it is one of the few in the world with a history dating back to ancient times, impressive lastingness, and a way of thinking that gives special attention to tastiness and healthy culinary practices.

The Mediterranean climate of Greece is characterized by mild winters, relatively warm and dry summers and generally, extended periods of sunshine throughout the year. That’s another advantage compared to many other places of the world. During the winter time rainfall is infrequent and cloudy weather never lasts more than two or three days. Usually, at the end of January or the first days of February, the so-called “halcyon days” make their appearance, infusing a spring air to the winter scene. It’s a period of ten sunny spring days, a phenomenon known since the ancient times by this name.
