Greece - Traditions and Daily life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Many parts of modern Greek life come from its history. Almost 2,000 years ago, Greece began the way of life we see today. In fact, this early Greek way of life has become a part of many countries. Many people call the Greeks the founders of Western civilization.
 
2     The Greeks were the first to have a democracy. Democracy means that all citizens have a right to participate. Greece is still a democracy, and many other countries are democracies now, too.
 
3     Today about 10 million people live in Greece. Many live in Greece's countryside. Some live in the cities. One of Greece's largest cities is Athens. Athens is the capital of Greece. Athens has always been at the center of Greek culture. The early Greeks built large theaters and government buildings. They even built kinds of shopping malls, called "stoas."
