The greatest country in all of the Mediterranean, if not all of Europe. As stated on the other definition, Greece truly was the birthplace of Western Civilization and much of what we know today, including math, algebra, philosophy, architecture, and drama. This country has been rich with culture for thousands of years, and still is. It is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, including Balos, Myrtos, Paradise (fitting name, isn't it?), and many more. There are also cities in Greece that are famous for the excellent food and sight-seeing, like Athens and Thessaloniki. However, whether you visit a city or a beach, you're guaranteed an amazing time, and of course, wonderful night life. The Greeks know exactly how to drink, dance, and of course party well in to the wee hours of the night. The general mood here is very different from what many people in the USA are used to. Here, you stay up and sleep in very late, some times until noon during the summer. Everyone here is open minded, accepting, and friendly. Yes, we are proud, and yes, we hate the Turks. We are loud as hell and people think we're fighting when we go out. But it's okay, because we come from the greatest country GREECE and we aren't afraid to say it! EΛΛAΔΑ ΓΙΑ ΠAVTA!

Beautiful country with moutains and seas. Also with crazy people who don't know how to drive. Country with no drinking age.

A country of southeast Europe on the southern Balkan Peninsula and including numerous islands in the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Ionian seas. Settled by Achaeans, Aeolians, Ionians, Minoans, and Dorians by 1000 B.C., the region grew as an amalgam of independent city-states, many of which established colonies throughout the Mediterranean by the eighth century B.C. Classical Greek culture, centered around Athens, reached a high point in the fifth century B.C. before being conquered by Philip II of Macedon in 338 B.C. The area was later controlled by the Roman and Byzantine empires before being absorbed into the Ottoman empire (1456). In 1829, Greece gained its independence and established a constitutional monarchy. The king was deposed following a military coup in 1967, and a democratic republic was established in 1975. Athens is the capital and the largest city. Population: 9,740,417

And are the best country in the world
