Tons of pics! Give it a minute or so to load... It's well worth it...

In the meantime, a few quick facts about Greece:

- The fastest growing economy in the "Euro Zone" at around 4.6%
- One of the world's top tourist destinations (over 16 million visitors expected this year)
- 15,147 km of coastline (around 9,500 miles)
- Over 1,400 islands
- 4,000 years of history
- The birthplace of democracy
- And, according to the annual EU beach quality report, home to the cleanest beaches in Europe.

Now, welcome to paradise:

I expected great quality from you NMBS1, but DAMN!!!!!! This is great stuff and one of the most definitive collection of Greek images; certainly the biggest collection of photos I have ever seen :eek:kay: If anyone wonders why Greece is a great destination, these images should provide a good explanation. Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Wonderful pics though two observations.

The population of Greece according to the last study of Eurostat and the hellenic statistic service is of around 11,200,000 (not including immigrant residents)

Moreover the census of 2001 gave a total population of 10,964,020, so I don't know where did you get that number from but it resembles more the 1997 figures.

Finally the number of islands, islets and rock outcrops in Greece are about 9,000 according to military studies in the Aegean.

As for the rest, congratulations for the pics and thank you buddy.

^ yeah I might have got the population wrong. However, regarding the islands, the 4,000 figure stands for islands that are actually habitable. So that number doesn't include little islets.
