Over 4000 years ago, the first tribes arrived at the Balkan Peninsula and laid the foundations of the oldest European civilisation. Ancient Greece gave democracy to the world, as well as an endless amount of knowledge of mathematics, architecture, military affairs, or philosophy.
Many modern scientists used Greek mathematicians or philosophers as a basis for their own work. Nowadays, Greece is littered with remnants of beautiful temples and ancient buildings whose architecture shaped the taste and style of modern builders. Let’s travel a few thousand years into the past and take a look at how the ancient Greeks lived, worked, fought, or created art.
