It’s also known as the “birthplace of academia.” Moreover, Greek history shows that the country has always had a strong commitment to education.

Information on Greece; its place geographically, history, government, climate, security, tourism and foreigners living in Greece…

Geography

Greece is located in south-eastern Europe, at the meeting point of three seas: the Ionian Sea to the west, the Mediterranean Sea to the south and the Aegean Sea to the east.

Greece’s Archipelago covers 7,500 km of the country’s 16,000 km of coastline, and it’s home to a wide variety of beaches, from sandy and pebble to sheltered bays, coves, and caves with steep rocks. It’s also home to dark sand, typical of volcanic soil, and coastal wetlands.

The Aegean is home to the majority of Greece’s islands. Greece’s islands are divided into the following seven groups: northeast Aegean islands, southern Sporades islands, eastern Evia islands, mainland Peninsular islands (Argosaronic islands), eastern Cyclades (group of 56 islands) islands, Dodecanous islands and Crete islands.

After the Aegean lies the Ionian Sea, where the main islands stretch from north to south, from Corfu to Lefkada to Ithaca, and from Kefallonia to Zakynthos. Kythira is located in the south of the peninsular part of Greece.

Climate

Greece has one of the warmest summers in Europe, with April through October being the best times to visit. In the south, temperatures can be up to 4 degrees warmer than in the north.

Greece’s climate is Mediterranean, with lots of sun, cool weather and not too much rain. It’s got a lot of different weather because of where it is, how rugged it is and how it’s spread out between land and sea.

In summer, the dry hot days are cooled by seasonal winds called the meltemi, while mountainous regions have generally lower temperatures.

In lowland areas, winters are pretty mild, with little snow and ice, but mountains are usually covered in snow. It’s also common to see different weather patterns during the same season, like mild heat in the coast and cool temperatures in the mountains.

History

The first evidence of human habitation dates back to about 11,000 to 3,000 BC. During the bronze age (3,000 to 1,200 BC), the advanced Greek civilisations of Cyclades, Minoans, Mycenaeans and Macedonians thrived. A dark age followed, marked by invasions. From the 6th century BC to the 4th century BC, Greece experienced a period of cultural and literary revival known as the classical period, or the Golden Age. This period was marked by a prolonged period of internal conflict and power struggles. The Peloponnesus War (431–404 BC) between the Spartans and the Athenians was a major turning point in the history of Greece. Both were later eclipsed by Macedonia under the rule of the twenty-year-old King Alexander, who unites the Greek kingdoms in Asia Minor and conquers Persia, Egypt and India (hence the name Hellenistic Age). By this time, Alexander had achieved the status of Alexander the Great.

Roman invasions reached Greece in 205 BC, and by 146 BC, Greece and Macedonia had become Roman provinces. After the Roman Empire divided into Eastern and Western realms in 395 AD, the city of Constantinople pledged its loyalty to Greece, ushering in the legendary Byzantine age, which laid the foundations of Orthodox Christianity. By 1500, almost all of Greece fell to the Ottoman Turks. In the nineteenth century, with the Ottoman Empire on the brink of collapse, the Greeks fought a war of independence (1821–1832) in which Britain, France, and Russia intervened. In 1866, Otto of Bavaria was installed as King of Greece. His ambition, known as The Great Idea, called for the reunification of all the Greek lands into the Greek motherland. In 1868, he was peacefully deposed and the Greeks elected as their king, George I of Denmark, a Danish prince.

During World War I, Greece’s prime minister, Constantine IV (Venizelos), allied Greece with France and Great Britain, which led to King Constantine’s (Constantin’s) departure from the country. Constantine’s wife, the Kaiser’s sister Sophia, was married to Constantine’s son. After the war, the Great Idea was revived, and Constantine IV sent troops to take the port city of Smyrna, which at the time had a Greek majority, from the Ottoman province of Izmir (modern-day Turkey). The army was defeated, and in 1923, the two countries engaged in a brutal exchange of population.

By 1930, Constantine’s son, General Metaxas, had been restored to the throne. In 1940, Metaxas refused to let Mussolini’s Italian troops cross Greece, placing Greece on the Allied side. In 1941, the country fell to Germany, and resistance movements erupted, dividing the country into royalist and communist factions. The result was a civil war that lasted until 1949, leaving the country in turmoil. Political instability followed, and in 1967, King Constantine abdicated and fled the country. He was succeeded by his son, Constantine II, who lived through a period of brutalization and reprisals under a US-backed regime of the Colonels. After an assassination attempt on the leader of Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios, was foiled, he was replaced by convicted killer Nicos Samson. In 1974, the regime collapsed, and the country became a republic under the New Democrat Party (NDP). The continued occupation of North Cyprus remains one of Greece’s most controversial issues.

In 1981 Greece entered the European Community.

Politics and Government

Democrat Greece is a parliamentary republic since 1975. The President is the head of state and is elected for a term of five years. The President and the 300-strong parliament have joint legislative powers. The government consists of a Prime Minister and 22 cabinet members.

The Greek two-party system is dominated by the liberal-conservative New Democracy (ND) and the social-democratic Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK). Other significant parties include the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) and the Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS).

The geographical area of Greece is subdivided into regions and groups of islands. The mainland regions of Greece comprise Central Greece (stereoeladha) (including Epiros), Macedonia (Macedonia, Skopje and Skopje), Thessaly (Thessaly) and Thrace.

The island groups comprise the following regions and groups: Argo-saronic Cyclades Dodecanese Ionian North-East Aegean Sporades Evia Crete Administrative divisions of the regions and groups:

Economy

Greece was traditionally an agricultural nation, but this is no longer the case. Tourism is Greece’s largest industry, while shipping accounts for 4.5% of GDP. Greece owns the largest maritime fleet in the world (3,079 vessels) with 18% of the world’s fleet capacity.

Per capita income in Greece is the lowest of all the EC Member States except for Portugal. Greece was hit hard by the financial crisis in the late 2000s; high public expenditure and high levels of tax evasion, combined with a credit crunch and recession, left the country drowning in debt.

Fearing defaults on debt payments, the eurozone countries have agreed on aid packages worth billions of euros to rescue Greece’s economy. This has led to huge cuts in public spending and tax increases, prompting fears of social unrest and instability.

Tourism

Tourism accounts for a significant share of the Greek economy. In 2009 alone, Greece hosted more than 19.3m tourists. In 2011, Santourgis was voted ‘the world’s best island’ by Travel and Leisure Magazine. The neighbouring island of Mycenaeum came in 5th.

Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, the Dodecanese and the Cylades are some of the famous and popular islands and island clusters in Greece.

In addition to its stunning beaches, Greece also boasts some of the world’s most popular archaeological sites, including the ancient city of Delphi, the Knossos archaeological site, the ancient city of Acropolis and the ancient city of Olympia.

Delphi is located in the middle of Greece, on the top of Mount Parnassus, looking out over the Corinth Bay. It was thought to be the center of the world by the ancient Greeks, and its biggest building – the Temple of Apollo – was said to be the most powerful oracle, used by royalty, warlords, politicians and travelers during the nine hottest months of the year.

Knossos The largest of Crete’s Minoan sites, Knossos was discovered in 1900 by the British archeologist Sir Arthur Janes (1851–1941) who spent a large sum of money reconstructing several of the buildings on the site. Knossos is a 22,000 m2 palace that served as a royal residence as well as a political and ceremonial center of Minoan society. The complex consists of courtyards and banquet rooms, as well as private living, religious and storage rooms.

The 5th century BC saw the rebuilding of the Acropolis during the golden age of Athens. The temple of Athena Nike is located south of the entrance to the Acropolis. It was built in honour of Athena, the patron of the city. The temple was dedicated to Athena after the defeat of the Persians by the Greeks in the Trojan War. Completed in 438 BC, the Parthenon is located on the Acropolis.

Olympia, on the Peloponnese peninsular, is the shrine of Zeus, in whose honour the Olympic Games were held every four years.click here

Security

The crime rate in Greece is one of the lowest in the European Union, but while violent crime is rare, petty theft, car theft and burglaries are on the rise, mostly in central Athens.

Foreigners/expats

Greece’s large coastline and multiple islands mean that policing the entry of migrants is difficult, but it is believed that Albanian migrants make up about 70 percent of foreigners living in Greece, while recent immigrant groups have come from Pakistan, Bangladesh and the former Yugoslavian countries.

Athens is the most sought-after city for expats, followed by the Peloponese peninsula and the capital, Athens, and the Greek islands of Crete, Rhodes and Corfu, which are also popular with retirees.

Greece is located on the south tip of the Balkans Peninsula. The country is situated at the intersection of three continents: Europe, Asia and Africa. Greece is a nation of philosophers, thinkers, and historians. Because of its long-standing relationship with education, it is considered one of the world’s top destinations for learning and study abroad. Greece is also considered the birthplace of the academic world. Furthermore, Greek history shows that the country has always supported and invested in education. In fact, the first European university described as a “university” was established in Greece. It is called “the University of Constantinople”.
