The Land of Gods and Goddesses
When we talk about Western civilization, Greece plays a pivotal role in the advancement of the civilization. There is a lot of history, philosophy, heritage and drama at the center stage of Greece which makes key in the development of democracy.
When you think about the geometry of Euclides or Pythagoras, the logical thinking of Aristotle as well as the unique architectural designs from way back in the 10th century when Greeks built Colosseums & Monasteries which have today inspired many architects all over the world, you will realize how special Greece has been to the hearts of many. Oh, I almost forgot about the Olympic Games which too were conceived and propagated by the Greeks. Simply, there is so much history and heritage that can be felt from this country.
Perhaps that’s the reasons as to why the country attracts over 10 millions tourist each year with its variety of attraction places. There is a lot learn as well as adventure in this beautifully endowed country. The geographical landscapes of Greece are too something to marvel about; the mountain ranges of Pindus or perhaps mountaineering in Mount Olympos or maybe scaling the heights of the mountains of Macedonia and Thrace. The list of great places to visit is long but can never be complete without mentioning the great coastlines; the best according to my opinion being Santorini– I really loved watching the beautiful sunsets of Santorini the last time I was there for my summer vacation. The place is simply endowed by rare beauty.
As I talk about the unique blend of the splendid beauty, I can’t to talk about great educational places that you can visit and have a glimpse of the overwhelming history and culture of the Greeks: I’m talking about places such as Acropolis Museum in Athens where there is a lot of archaeological history that you can learn about or the likes of the Palace of the Grand Master in Rhodes.
Maybe visiting the Ancient Epidaurus could make your day on a boring summer holiday. And, if you must learn about the world peaceful sport and their origin as well as how they were conducted back then, why not pay Ancient Olympia a visit; I’m sure you would regret your decision. That’s how magnificent Greece is.
