About Greece

Greece is a country in south eastern Europe on the southern part of the Balkan Peninsula, bordering the Mediterranean Sea in south and the Ionian Sea in west.

Greece is bordered by Albania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Republic of Macedonia, and it shares maritime borders with Cyprus, Egypt, Italy, and Libya.

The peninsular mainland offers a quite mountainous landscape. Then there is the Peloponnese peninsula, it is more an island because it is separated from the mainland by the Gulf of Corinth. And then there are the Greek islands, a lot of islands, many, more than 1,000 anyway. The ten largest islands by area are Crete, Euboea, Lesbos, Rhodes, Chios, Cephalonia, Corfu, Lemnos, Samos and Naxos. The most populous islands are Crete, Euboea, Rhodes, Corfu, Lesbos, Chios, Kefalonia, and Zakynthos.

Greece covers an area of 132,000 km², making it slightly larger than half the size of the United Kingdom, or slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Alabama.

The country has a population is about 11.5 million people (in 2016). Largest city and the national capital is Athens, spoken languages are Greek (official) and Turkish (predominantly spoken by a minority of Turks in Western Thrace).
