0219 Greece

present (sent from Russia)

The official name of Greece is the Hellenic Republic. It is also known as Ellas or Ellada.
The capital and largest city in Greece is Athens. Other major cities include Thessaloniki, Patras and Heraklion. The highest mountain in Greece is Mount Olympus, it has over 50 peaks with the highest reaching 2917 metre.  :)   
In Greece, people celebrate the “name day” of the saint that bears their name rather than their own birthday.
Greece is not only amazingly beautiful, but it has a long and interesting history as well. ;)

Спасибо Надежда за открытку!!!
