DISCOVER GREECE

Where healthcare meets efficiency

Greece is located in south-eastern Europe, on the southern end of the Balkan Peninsula (Haemus peninsula); it lies at the meeting point of three continents – Europe, Asia and Africa.

Athens, Capital of Greece, is one of the world’s oldest cities with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years and being in habited since the 11th millennium BCE. A large part of the town’s historical centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone, which is the largest in Europe. It leads to the major archaeological sites (the “archaeological park”), simulating the ancient landscape. Walk on the “Grande Promenade” in the Athens’ historic centre and stroll down history lane: Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, the Theatre of Dionyssos, the Roman Agora, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and the Kerameikos cemetery form the core of ancient Athens. Up on the hill, Pnyx conjures images of democracy in action, as the general assembly (Ecclesia) met during Pericles’ golden age and exercised “rule by the people”. Take a break. Have a light lunch and a shot of ouzo in Plaka, the oldest neighbourhood of Athens. Pick up some great bargains at the Monastiraki flea market. Sit on a bench at the city’s Green oasis, the National Garden.

Millions of tourists come every year eager to taste good food prepared only with the best-quality virgin olive oil or try the delicious olives, so commonly found in the Greek landscape. They savour the particular cheeses of the Greek countryside: feta, kasseri, graviera (gruyere), manouri, anthotyro, myzithra, metsovone. They relish wholesome meats and poultry and enjoy the freshest fish and sea food. They delight in a bite of fish roe, a farmhouse loaf of bread, a ”dakos” salad and in the particular taste of the saffron crocus threads from Kozani.

The health sector in Greece has up-to-date facilities in terms of both building complexes and equipment in many regions of the country, starting with Athens, Thessaloniki and Crete. In addition, Greece possesses internationally recognized medical and nursing staff, top level hotels that can function in a supportive capacity. Tourist members of the European Union that hold the  European Health Card (EHIC) have access to the necessary health services.
