Greece is a hugely popular tourist destination, and thanks to the current financial crisis it is going to need all the tourists that it can get. It is most famous for its islands – Crete, Corfu, Kos and Rhodes being some of the most popular. Greeks are proud of the influence their nation has had on the politics, languages and philosophy of others, and ruins of the ancient Greeks can be seen throughout the country.

The capital, Athens, is home to the Parthenon, part of the Acropolis. Mount Olympus is not only the home of the god, but is also a national park and a popular trekking destination.
