Greece is certainly a very popular holiday destination with tourists from many countries. It is no matter whether you’ll stay in a cottage, apartment or hotel, Greece always offers something for everyone in order to make the vacation perfect.
Greece lies in the South-East part of Europe and borders on with the Mediterranean Sea. As a result, the country has got not only excellent bathing facilities but also a nice Mediterranean climate with wet but mild winters and dry, hot summers. In mountainous areas which are quite far-reaching it is cooler in winter and it even snows, so that in winter you can also go in for sports. But not only the climate is very attractive. Greece also wonderful cultural, scenic and culinary offers for you.
Everyone knows Gyros, Zaziki and Ouzo even if he has not been to Greece yet. Naturally, the Greek cuisine has much more to offer you than simply typical dishes.
The landscape is generally varied: from the vast mountains to wonderful coastal views.
As for Greek culture, then Athens have much to offer you. Athens not only the present capital of Greece. It was already the capital of ancient Greece, the cradle of Europe and its cultural centre for a very long time. Athens gave birth not only to Western philosophy, it also was the scene of many political and historical events. The remains such as the Acropolis and various temples are a popular tourist destination. However, such Greek islands as Rhodes, Crete or the Athos Monastic Republic are also visited with pleasure.
