Greece is a land that has played a huge contribution to the world, in terms of mythology, philosophy, scientific advancement as well as language. The Greek language is the foundational language for many words in science - especially astronomy, mathematics and logic. Greek roots are also often used to coin words for other languages and as a result, some Greek words or their derivatives have found their way into the English vocabulary.
Greece is also famed for its beautiful landscape which is dotted with thousands of islands, including popular holiday destinations such as Santorini and Mykonos. The Olympic Games - now a hugely population held the world over - also originated in this European country.
