2500 years ago, the civilization of Ancient Greece was built. Ancient Greece is also called "the birthplace of Western Civilization'. The Ancient Greeks lived at the mainland of Greece, but they also sailed around the world to trade goods and find new lands.    
Greeks created a way of life that many people admired. They were the country who invented democracy and started the Olympic games. They give us many new ideas of science, arts, architecture, and philosophy to the modern world we live in now.
