  6. 6. Climate of Greece
  7. 7. Climate is the average of the weather conditions at a certain area for a long period of time. It depends on the distance from the equator of the earth, the distance from the sea and the altitude.   Climate of Hellas: Hellas accepts enough solar energy but not too much. So, there aren’t extreme temperatures. All places are close to the sea, because the mainland is narrow. The landscape is intense but it doesn’t have very high altitudes. So: The islands have lower temperatures during the day than the mainland. Rain showers are more intense at western part of the country than at the eastern one. At Macedonia, Thessaly, Epirus and Thrace the climate is colder than the rest of the country and the rain showers are a usual phenomenon during all the seasons. Ionian Islands and south Crete have a sweet climate with small differences between the winter and the summer temperatures and enough rain showers. Eagan Islands accept less rain showers and they suffer from strong north winds during the winter. Athens (average temperatures): Spring 15 ο – 20 ο Summer 30ο -35ο Autumn 10ο -20ο Winter 8ο -10ο How’s the climate? Greece

  10. 10. The Greek flag Flag is a precious symbol for every country. Everybody respect and honor the National flag. In Greece our flag has a very special meaning. It is based on nine equal horizontal stripes of blue alternating with white. There is a blue canton in the upper hast-side corner bearing a white cross; the cross symbolizes Orthodoxy and the nine stripes represent the nine syllables of the phrase “Freedom or Death”, “E-lef-the-ria i tha- na-tos”. The official flag ratio is 2:3 blue and white have many interpretations, symbolizing the colors of sky and sea, combined with the white clouds and waves. © Penny & Nefeli

  13. 13. The Parthenon is a temple of the Greek goddess Athena , whom the people of Athens considered their protector. Its construction began in 447 BC and was completed in 432 BC on the Athenian Akropolis , although decorations of the Parthenon continued until 431 BC. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece , generally considered to be the culmination of the development of the Doric order . The architects who may have worked on the Parthenon was Iktinos, Kallikrates and Phidias . The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athinian democracy and one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. © Petros Eleni Anthoula
  14. 14. Ithaca By Constantine P. Cavafy Always keep Ithaca in your mind. To arrive there is your ultimate goal. But do not hurry the voyage at all. It is better to let it last for many years; and to anchor at the island when you are old, rich with all you have gained on the way, not expecting that Ithaca will offer you riches. Ithaca has given you the beautiful voyage. Without her you would have never set out on the road. She has nothing more to give you. And if you find her poor, Ithaca has not deceived you. Wise as you have become, with so much experience, you must already have understood what Ithacas mean When you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that the road is long, full of adventure, full of knowledge. The Lestrygonians and the Cyclops, the angry Poseidon -- do not fear them: You will never find such as these on your path, if your thoughts remain lofty, if a fine emotion touches your spirit and your body. The Lestrygonians and the Cyclops, the fierce Poseidon you will never encounter, if you do not carry them within your soul, if your soul does not set them up before you. Pray that the road is long. That the summer mornings are many, when, with such pleasure, with such joy you will enter ports seen for the first time; stop at Phoenician markets, and purchase fine merchandise, mother-of-pearl and coral, amber and ebony, and sensual perfumes of all kinds, as many sensual perfumes as you can; visit many Egyptian cities, to learn and learn from scholars. ©Elina,Loukia,Dimitra A poem from my country
  15. 15. Greek traditional dances Greek dance is a very old tradition, being referred to by ancient authors such as Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Lucian. [1] There are different styles and interpretations from all of the islands and surrounding mainland areas. Each region formed its own choreography and style to fit in with their own ways. For example, island dances have more of a &quot;watery&quot; flow to them, while Pontic dancing closer to dances that come from all regions of Greece. There are also Pan Hellenic dances, which have been adopted throughout the Greek world. These include the tsamiko, syrtos, and kalamatianos. © Kostas elina
