About Greece

Greece is located in southern Europe along the Aegean Sea, Ionian Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea. It borders several European countries including Albania, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey.

The terrain in Greece is mostly mountainous. Its highest peak is Mytikas at Mount Olympus, reaching a height of 2,917 meters high. In Greek mythology, this mountain peak holds a remarkable history, as it was the home of the Greek Gods.

Greece is categorized as an archipelago because it consists of about 6,000 islands. But only 227 islands are inhabited with human settlements or visited by tourists.
