A cultural getaway

When people are asked about our country and its culture, they usually talk about how “Greece is the cradle of Western civilization”, about it being “the place where ancient philosophers were born”; about how “the Greek language has survived throughout the centuries”; how “democracy was first created as a political system”, its remarkable archaeological sites, interesting museums, its mythology and so on.

But Greece is even more than this. Greece is also a breathtaking landscape with the sea as its backdrop; Greece is home to tremendously important archaeological sites alongside golden sandy beaches. Ancient monuments hidden next to the deep blue sea. Cobbled streets created in Byzantine times.

Culture in Greece means celebrating your country’s traditions. Culture is reading poems by world famous Greek poets in the Athens metro on your way to work.
