Mini Guide to Greece:
Some 2500 years ago, Greece was the centre of the Western world, where European civilisation and the concept of democratic government were born. Today, Greece is suffering economic hardship, and its famous ruins symbolise the 20th-century poverty of a once great nation.
In between, Greece has had a tumultuous history.
Modern Greece has been described as 'a poor nation with all its ribs showing'. It is an evocative description, covering economics and geography. The ribs are the mountain ranges that dominate the country. The PINDHOS Mountains divide Greece from the Albanian border in the north to the Gulf of CORINTH in the south, peaking at Smolikas (2637 m, 8651 ft). Another rib runs southwards from Yugoslavia, soaring to Mount OLYMPUS (2917 m, 9570 ft) and extending to the Aegean Sea.
About 70 per cent of the land is hilly, with harsh mountain climates and poor soils, but agriculture is the chief activity. Until 1950 most of the people were involved in subsistence farming, producing enough food for themselves but with no surplus for sale. There has since been a steady migration to the towns, but 30 per cent of the population still lives in the countryside.
Forests cover large areas in the highlands of MACEDONIA, THRACE and Pindhos. Woodland in lower areas has been reduced by forest fires during long, dry summers and by felling to provide fuel and clear land for pasture.
Dry Mediterranean vegetation covers southern and central Greece, with bushes and open woods. The island of CRETE has an astonishing variety of wild plants and flowers; there are more than 100 species with medicinal properties. Back on the mainland, Attiki is renowned for herbs and wild flowers which provide the nectar for excellent honey. Firs are common in the mountains; oaks, beeches and chestnuts lower down.
In coastal waters, sea sponges are an important crop in the DODECANESE islands, and sea anemones and urchins are a tourist attraction among the submerged rocks. Dolphins sometimes follow ships along the coasts.
Large-scale agriculture is concentrated on the fertile plains on the eastern coasts. Crops include tomatoes, cotton and cereals in THESSALY, fruit trees in the river valleys of AXIOS and ALlAKMON in Macedonia, tobacco in the Strymon valley in Thrace, and vineyards, orange and olive groves in the PELOPONNESE and Crete.
The IONIAN SEA in the west and the Aegean in the east contain 2000 Greek islands. Fewer than 200 are inhabited, but they contain 11.3 per cent of the population. The main tourist islands, such as CORFU, Crete, MIKONOS and RHODES, have international airports, while many others handle domestic flights only. The rest of the islands use PIRAEUS, the port of ATHENS, as their link with the outside world.
As the southernmost part of the BALKANS, the Greek peninsula is the most south-easterly extension of Europe - cut off by its Communist neighbours from West European countries, 1300 km (800 miles) away by road. Again, sea and air provide important links; Italy is less than 200 km (125 miles) away by sea.
