Greece is located in south-east Europe and includes thousands of islands across the Ionian and Aegean seas. Greece has been hugely influential in history especially ancient times, it's is referred to as the birthplace of democracy and often called the cradle of Western civilization. Athens is the capital and hosts world famous landmarks including the 5th century BC Acropolis citadel and the Parthenon temple.

Due to its geographical position, Greece is a crossroad of civilizations. The history of Greece traces as far back as Stone Age hunters. Next, it was on to the farmers and the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations, and then, following this, was a period of wars and invasions, known as the Middle Ages.

Most notably, the ancient Greek classical and Hellenistic eras were beautiful times, leaving behind a legacy of ideas, concepts and the foundations of what is now known as "Western civilization".

The dialects of ancient Greece have had a significant influence both the modern Greek language and the vocabularies of languages ​​spoken in the world today. The art and architecture of ancient Greece have proved highly influential in our time for the inner western society.
