The best things to see in Greece
If you ask Europeans for their favorite travel spot, many will actually mention Greece. The country with its beautiful seaside and a few thousand islands is especially popular in summer. You have most probably already seen one or another picture taken in places like Santorini or Rhodes with perfectly blue skies, waters and rooftops on purely white houses. However, the country with its 11 million inhabitants actually has much more to offer than these two islands. As it lies at the edges of Europe, Africa and Asia you can expect to find a great cultural variety here. Western civilization was strongly shaped by developments in Ancient Greece and the subsequent states of the country with concepts like democracy, philosophy and mathematics developing here. Greek architecture is among the most famous ones in the world and global events like the Olympic Games were inspired by the Ancient Olympic Games in Greece. You could probably spend a whole life on studying Greek history and its mythology but the best evidence for its development is to see the country with your own eyes. If you plan to do so you should get an overview of the best things to see in Greece – for example the Acropolis in Athens, the Pantheon, Delphi or islands like Santorini, Rhodes and Mykonos.
