About Greece

The beautiful Greece is located on the eastern part of the Mediterranean in Southern Europe. Athens is known not only as a capital, but also for many historical and important sights from ancient times, such as the Acropolis. Other major cities in the country are Patras, Thessaloniki, Piraeus or Heraklion.
Although it is often mentioned in connection with beautiful beaches and romantic fishing villages, Greece actually consists of large parts of mountains, and is therefore classified as mountainous resort.
But most of the holidaymakers want to spend a relaxing holiday on the beautiful coastal cities with a mediteran flair.
