Greece is located in Southeast Europe on the southern tip of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa. Eighty percent of Greece is mountainous, and has the longest coastline on the Medererranean Basin, featuring many islands.

Greece is the birthplace of democracy, Western Philosophy and Literature, historiography, political science, Western drama and the Olympic Games. Known as the cradle of the Western civilisation, ancient Greece cultivated major scientific and mathematical principles. From the 8th century BC, Greece was divided into city-states called polis, spanning across the region. During his reign in 4th century BC, Alexander the Great conquered most of the ancient world from the Mediterraneanan to India; 2nd century BC, Greece was annexed to Rome, and became a part of the Roman Empire.
