About Greece

Greece is a wonderful, unexplored country that I strongly suggest visiting at least once. Nature's beauty and history of mankind are bonded in every single corner of Greece.  

Visiting Greece

Nylou.com: A nice website for those looking for places to visit in Greece.

Greeka.com: An online travel guide to the Greek Islands

A powerpoint with photos taken during a walk in the forest of Mountain Pelion.

Andros is among my favorite Greek islands. See an example of homes in Andros.

Why Macedonia is Greek

Click here for a collection of online documents that explain why Macedonia is Greek.

History of Greece

Website on the Hellenic History founded by the Foundation of the Hellenic World. This is an excellent a complete effort. If you have spare time on the internet, I strongly suggest you use that website. You will enjoy learning.

Ancient Greek Cities. A very interesting website on some of the many cities-states.

National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

ODYSSEUS, the WWW server of the Hellenic Ministry of Culture.

Experience Olympia. A virtual reality tour in ancient Olympia.
Worth a visit.

Photos of Athens in the 1960s and 1970s.

A video about “OXI”; the “No” that Greece responded to the Referendum of the Italians/Germans to surrender during World War II. Watch Video here!

Greek Language

The speech of Xenophon Zolotas at the closing session of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, on September 26, 1957 and on October 2, 1959 consisting only of Greek words used in English language. Any other comments are unnecessary, but is definetely interesting to read it.

An obituary of John Chadwick, 1920-1998. With M. Ventris, he decipher the Linear B and proved to the world that the Mycenean Civilization are Greeks.

The Odyssey, and the Iliad, the great poems written by Homer in about the 9th Century BC, translated in English.

Archaeology / History

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Very interesting work is done here.

Ancient Helike. The search for Helike continues while findings strongly encourage more archaeologic investigations are needed to find the city that was lost during an earthquake in 373 BC. Donating money for this effort is something all Greeks should consider.

Nemea Center for Classical Archaeology. A center created by the University of California at Berkeley, that continues the work of Professor Steven Miller, who has done a formidable job and deserves your financial support.

Greek Student Magazines

Here are some links to student magazines that are not related to political and other student parties. I believe that this kind of
magazines are really useful for our society. Check them out!

fititis.gr: An interesting greek student portal.

papaki: This online magazine is an impressive work of students of the Journalism Department of Panteion University.

Activity Groups

Scouts of Greece: Once a scout, always a scout. Scouts is a group in which you learn to enjoy life and nature, socialize, respect your country, contribute to your society and do activities you usually cannot do with your family or friends. I owe a part of myself to scouts.

Environment

Elliniki Ornithologiki Etaireia. Over the years, I was subscribed to several environmental groups in Greece. This is by far the best and their efforts should be supported.  

Donations

Greek Association for support of kids from Ethiopia
