About The Country
Greece has long been considered the cradle of Western civilization, where democracy and political science, poetry and drama, science and philosophy took their birth. It's no surprise, that it has no less than 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, reflecting its rich history and long tradition of culture.
Modern Greece came into existence in 1830 after a war of independence against the Ottoman Empire, which is modern day Turkey. Today it is a part of the EU and the Eurozone. Its rich cultural legacy, tradition of hospitality, more than 30 scenic and popular islands such as Crete, Mykonos and Santorini, combined with the climate, fine food and natural attractions make it the 7th most visited country in Europe, and 16th in the world.
Its unique geographic position makes it possible to travel to three different continents within an hour; the farthest points in Europe are, at the most, only 3 hours away. The largest economy in the Balkans, it is considered a "middle power".
In 2013, Greek Law 4146/2013 made it possible for foreign nationals who buy a residence worth at least €250,000 to obtain an indefinitely renewable 5-year residency visa.
