It all started about 2,500 years ago. You will have to think again, though, before you call it ancient and move on because in its staying power sprawling Greece is also confoundingly modern. Following the end of the 2009 financial crisis, a picture emerged of a future looking country, making Greece a modern cultural center and a vibrant amalgam where the contemporary arts and culture movements coexist with the strong presence of classic heritage.
The country is changing but without losing its soul. It’s not just the Acropolis, though visiting is a not-to-be missed lifetime event, it’s not just the archaeological sites, it’s also the Athens Biennale, the Athens Epidaurus Festival, the artistic graffiti, the numerous art galleries and a new way of life embracing arts and culture. Greece constantly reinvents herself like a living organism that continuously evolves.
