My country is very beautiful and it is called Greece. Greece borders with Albania, Turkey, Bulgaria, the
Aegean Sea and the Ionian Sea.
Greece has many mountains and plains. It has many beaches, too. The weather is very good. In summer it
is very warm, but in winter it is cold and it sometimes snows.
Greeks are Mediterranean people. They are very hospitable and they are kind-hearted. They like good food
and easy life.

and it can achieve many things!

My name is Dimitris and I am eleven years old. It is a Greek name, because my parents come from Greece
and I live in Greece. The official name of my country is both Greece and Hellas and it includes Crete and all
the islands in the Mediterranean around my country. Greece borders with Albania, F.Y.R.O.M., Bulgaria,
Italy and Turkey.
The country is mostly mountainous in the east, north and western parts, but with plains and hills in the
south. The whole country is surrounded by sea, with many islands in the south. There are also lakes and
rivers throughout the country.
The weather is very hot in the summer time, but also very cold and wet in many parts. It rains and snows in
autumn and winter.
The people of Greece are mostly local, but also multicultural from other countries and races, so here you
can meet Albanians, Egyptians, Africans and more. They speak Greek and their own language, of course.
I think it’s an exciting and interesting country full of ancient history and hospitable people!

by Panagiotis Chrisikos (6th
My country is not very big, but it is important, because its history starts many years ago. Many big
personalities have visited Greece, because maybe they are interested in our people or customs. So, if
somebody wants to visit Greece, he must know some things about it.
Firstly, the climate is mild with cold winters and warm summers. There are a lot of touristic islands which
are full of people in the summers. In big cities children have fun in cafes or in clubs. In addition, there isn’t
a village or city without a museum. Museums show the history of our country. Another important fact is
that Greeks do not forget their customs. For example, Greece celebrates Christmas on December 25th
Easter in April.
These are some of the things which a person must know before visiting Greece.

proud of our Greek history, monuments, civilization, as well as of our breathtaking sights, like Acropolis,
Parthenon, White Tower, Delphi and Knossos Palace.
