Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic is a country in southeastern Europe, situated on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula.

Greece lies at the juncture of Europe, Asia and Africa.
It is heir to the heritages of ancient Greece, the Roman and Byzantine Empires and nearly four centuries of Ottoman rule.
Greece is the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games, etc

Greece is a member of the European Union since 1981.
Population is about 11,2 million.

Athens is the capital.


In my trip to Greece I visited only the Athens and Argolis - Corinth Canal, Epidaurus theatre, Nafplion and the ancient city of Mycenae.

Places, what I have not seen yet, but in future I want to see are:
Ancient Olympia
Meteora
Thessaloniki
