Greece combines amazing landscapes, huge mountains and gorges like Olympus and Vikos gorge in Zagorohoria area. Rivers like Voidomatis (which is the cleanest river in Europe) or Acherontas. Halkidiki the jewel of northern Greece, up to 200 km of sandy beaches and crystal clear water and of course the famous Greek islands!

3. Way of life
You know Greeks! Are friendly, strange people, with high hospitality consciousness, but they are free! This was the main thing. We are free and we are very happy for that. This way of life reflects all over the world, and imagine how it reflects to permanent foreigners who are living here! A Greek doesn’t care a lot what happened next, there is no serious reason for having and follow a program in life because life is from the nature unpredictable. If a Greek feels pressure, he escapes from the game, and that’s it! The game is over. This mentality that the Greeks have is written in their DNA.
4. Food – Mediterranean kitchen
Quality of products is the base of the Greek kitchen. Olive oil, goat cheese, tomatoes, fresh green vegetables, honey, olives, and of course fresh sea fishes! What is tastier than these? Greek kitchen has a very old philosophy from ancient times. The land is so productive, and the quality is the top in the world!

Greece is sea! Over 6000 big and small islands existing in Greece. Only in 227 living people! 7500km of blue cyan beaches all over the country and over 1000+ small only by boat accessible paradises are hidden everywhere in the country.
