Greece


Culture and traditions


Customs and traditions are very important in Greek culture. Most of them began their history in ancient times and kept alive today. Greece is a country with a very rich history from the Bronze age, the classical period, the Roman period, the Ottoman period, and more. It is also known all over the world for its many famous people and their actions throughout the centuries. The adventures of Hercules, the myths of the ancient Greek Gods and Goddesses, and Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, are all well-known to everyone. The history of Greece is the greatest legacy that has been brought to modern days and is still valued by many people.

Nonetheless, modern Greece is quite a religious and superstitious country. Since the Byzantine times Greece has been influenced by the Christian Orthodox church, and around 98% of people belong to this religion.  Others are Muslims, Catholics and Jewish. Greece and Russia are the only countries to have such a great proportion of Orthodox population. The Greeks cherish Christian traditions and celebrate Names days. Along with that, they make official proposals and believe that people should get engaged before getting married and exchange wedding rings. This beautiful custom is still current on the Greek mainland, although gradually disappearing.

Another great tradition is a Greek carnival or "Apokries", which consists of two weeks of feasting. Everyone wear costumes, throws coloured confetti at each other, and parties take place in the streets and bars. The most famous carnival parade takes place in the city of Patra.

Greek architecture must be given a mention. Beautiful and historic buildings and monuments have survived throughout the centuries and can be enjoyed nowadays. Ruins from Minoan, Roman,Mycenaean, Classical, Byzantine, Medieval, Ottoman, and Neo-classical periods are penetrated with history and reflect the life of Greek ancestors. If you love history, or want to learn about it more, you should deifinitely come and behold these great ancient sites.
