  • Hello everyone. I am Karol and my fellow group members are Jimmy, Fai and Sa. We have choose Greece as our country in this research project.
  • We are going to mention about the 4 areas, which are Custom, mythology, sports and architectures and attractions in our presentation to let you know about their impact to hospitality industry, society as a whole and to individuals in the community.
  • First of all, let me introduce you more about Greece first. Greece is a country of a great interests and diverse cultures, influenced by its location. It is a peninsular and mountainous country located in Southern Europe, on the Mediterranean, between Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
  • The Flag of Greece is combined with blue and white color. Blue symbolizes the sky and the sea and white symbolizes the clouds and the waves. On the top left, there is a blue square canton with a white cross, symbol of the Greek Orthodoxy, the established religion of the Greeks.
  • Here is some brief introduction of Greece. The capital of Greece is located in Athens and the total area of Greece is a hundred thirty one thousands nine hundred and fifty seven sq km. The total population in Greece is over 10 millions of people. Their official language is Greek and there is only 1% of people speak other language, such as French and English. The Greek population is composed of a 97% of Christian Orthodox and the rest of the population is Muslim, Roman Catholic and Jewish. Lastly, the government type of Greece is parliamentary republic.
  • Here we are going to talk about Greek. Greeks experience in a High context culture. They are warm and hospitable. When meeting someone for the first time, they shake hands firmly, smile, and maintain direct eye contact. For good friends, they often embrace and may also kiss each other on cheek. Male friends often slap each other&apos;s arm at the shoulder.
  • Greeks are particularly proud of their culture, country and speak of it with an intense passion, feeling that their culture is a definition of their national and ethnic belonging. Now, I an going to discuss the Greece custom in a greater detail, including the traditions, religion, family values, foods and wine and music.
  • Customs and traditions in Greece are either of a religious character or coming from paganism. Furthermore, most of the traditions and festivals still celebrated today are religious. For the traditions, I am going to introduce you the name day celebration and the touch red traditional superstitions.
  • In Greece, name days are more important than birthdays. Most of the Greeks owe their names to a religious saint. A very important Greek tradition is that everyone who has a name coming from a saint celebrates his name on a given day of the year. On the “name day” of someone, his friends and family visit him without invitation and offer their wishes as well as small presents.
  • About the touch red tradition superstitions, Greeks believe that saying the same thing together is an omen and will lead to a fight or argument. As a result, they will instantly say “piase kokkino” (which means touch read) and both have to touch any red item around them immediately.
  • About the religion, the Greek Orthodox is the national religion and is practiced by the majority of the population. From the Greek point of view, religion is integral to life and is evidenced in the respect for hierarchy and view of the family as a single unit of strength. Therefore, Most holidays and festivals are religious in nature. Moreover, The Church plays a greater role in political, civic, and governmental affairs than in more secular countries.
  • Easter is the major religious holiday and the celebration is more important to most Greeks than Christmas. Women will dye eggs in red and godparents will buy news shoes, clothes and a candle to the kids. In villages, the exterior of the houses and the streets are whitewashed.
  • For the family values, in Greek point of view, the family is the basis of the social structure. It offers both financial and emotional support to its members. Moreover, the extended family is expected to help relatives in times of need, even to the point of assisting them to find employment. That is why family relationships can carry over into business and Nepotism is accepted in Greek’s eye. However, the wrongdoing of one family member will bring dishonour to the entire family.
  • Greece Food and Wine is famous for its good quality products and the amazing taste. Here are some pictures which show you more about the famous food in Greece. They are called Briam, Pastitsio and Horiatiki Salata.
  • For the left one, it is called Htapodi, which is an octopus dishes. The bottom one is Horta, a mixed salad and the right one is Keftedakia, which is meatball.
  • The dishes are called Tsatziki and Taramosalata. The wine on the right hand side is Ouzo, which is the most famous wine in Greece.
  • For the Greece music, it has an unbelievable diversity due to the creative Greek assimilation of different influences of the Eastern and Western cultures. It can be broadly divided into four types, which are Greek Folk Songs, Cantadha, Nisiotika and Rebetiko. Now, we are going to discuss the nisiotika music on greater details.
  • Nisiotika is one of the most distinctive categories of Greek Music and Greek songs, referring to the music created in the islands of the central Aegean Sea. Nisiotika are light songs, with a gentle rhythm, without the dramatic element of the Cretan or Pontic Music. The simple dance and the catchy tone made them popular with the wider public. Here is an example of the Nsiotika song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8tAtMcqS04&amp;feature=player_embedded
  • In conclude, the impact on Greece custom to the hospitality industry is that as Greek are warm and hospitable, they will provide good service to the visitor from oversea. Moreover, as Greece food and wine are famous and delicious, visitor will have a variety of food choice in Greece. However, there is some negative impact to the hospitality industry, too. As nepotism is acceptable in Greece, Greek may give a job to their family members and not consider if they have enough skills for not. Moreover, Greek may also blindly protect their family members if they do something wrong. They are not consider the fact, but the person.
  • For the influence on society, the positive influence is that as Greek are religious, they will force the children to pray all together before class in school. It can develop a good habit to them. The negative influence on society is also occurred in religion. The government decision in Greece are greatly affected by the church’s representatives. Once the representative do not like the policy made by the government, they will object it and the decision will thus cannot pass.
  • Lastly, the influence on individuals is that from their etiquette of warm and hospitable, they like to sharing with others no matter who. They will treasure the time with their friends and not like to stay alone. The negative impact on individuals is that Greece’s tradition make the Greek extremely superstitious. They may do something which considered as non-sense in other people’s eye. And now, I will give the turn to Sa to introduce you more about Greece mythology.
  • There are 5 famous attractions in Greece, The Acropolis of Athens, Epidaurus, Delphi, Olympia, and Mycenae.
  • This is the imaginative picture of Acropolis of Athens in the past.
  • Now, many buildings in Acropolis of Athens are collapsed, but we can see the Parthenon clearly.
  • Epidaurus actually was a small city in ancient Greece. This is the Epidaurus theater.
  • The third famous attraction is Delphi. In fact, Delphi is both an archaeological site and a modern town in Greece. There are many famous historical heritages. Let me give some example here.
  • Treasury had a large number of votive statues, and numerous treasuries in the past, but thay have been lost now. These were built by the various Greek city states to commemorate victories and to thank the oracle for her advice, which was thought to have contributed to those victories. The Tholos at the sanctuary of Athena Pronaia is a circular building that was constructed between 380 and 360 BC.
  • The ancient theatre originally built in the 4th century BC .It was built further up the hill from the Temple of Apollo giving spectators a view of the entire sanctuary and the valley below. On the right hand sign, this is the historical heritage of the Temple of Apollo, which is a reconstructed temple after a fire and an earthquake.
  • Olympia is known for having been the site of the Olympic Games in classical times. The games were held every Olympiad (i.e. every four years), the Olympic Games dating back possibly further than 776 BC. In 394 AD ( after exactly 1170 years ) emperor Theodosius I abolished them.
  • The significant historical heritages are Philippeion and the temple of Zeus.
  • Mycenae is also an archaeological site in Greece. It was one of the major centres of Greek culture in the second millennium BC.
  • This is Lion Gate. In the photo on the left, there are to lionesses flank the central column, but the meaning is much debated.
  • This tomb is another attraction in Mycenae.
  • Obviously, the Greek attractions can attract more tourists to visit Greece, generate more revenue of tourism, and more job opportunities (including hotel and tourism industry)
  • The ancient theatre of Epidaurus is nowadays used for staging ancient Greek drama shows.
  • Now, I ’ d like to introduce ancient Greek architecture.
  • These were the common materials and their purposes of Greek architecture. The most significant materials were unbaked brick, limestone and marble because many places in Greece were abundant in unbaked brick and limestone. However, marble was very expensive because it was abundant on few islands and it is very difficult for ancient Greek to deliver marble to mainland Greece.
  • This is one of the examples of using limestone and marble in Greek architecture. It shows that limestone and marble were used for columns, walls, and upper portions of temples and public buildings.
  • This is photo inside a temple. We can see that wood is used for supports and roof beams plaster. In fact, it was also used for sinks and bathtubs in the ancient Greece.
  • Ancient Greek architecture also impact on hospitality industry nowadays. As Greek was used to use limestone, marble, and unbaked brick for their architecture, most of their buildings are white in colour. Thus, most hotels, especially resort hotels, use white as their major colour in order to match the buildings around and make guests feel comfortable.
  • The interior design and modern furniture are matches the white theme of the walls.
  • Obviously, the architecture impact on Greek society as well. So many people call Greece is a “ White world ” .
  • These are photos 3 typical streets. All of the houses along the streets are white ,so people feel there are comfortable and clean.
  • These are 2 photos of modern Greek private houses. The walls are like made of unbaked brick.
  • This is another design of Greek houses. We can see that the roof tiles are made of terracotta.
  • This is a Olympia train station with a design like ancient Greek temples. Terracotta is also used for the roof tiles.
