The Greece guide

Latest articles

Located on the southernmost tip of the Balkan peninsula, Greece boasts a beautiful coastline and small resort islands in the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Ionian Seas. The country is one of the world’s top travel destinations and a popular spot among digital nomads.

Greece is a very child-friendly country. At least that’s what Greeks like to think. The reality is that although people are inherently friendly towards children, the societal structures make it hard for parents to get by without help from an extensive network of family and friends, or without resorting to getting a nanny or private child care. Also, the adoption procedure in Greece is an exhausting and time-consuming one that can take five years to complete.

Leisure in Greece has not been affected by the financial crisis. Not significantly, at least. Even though the way people are having fun and the places they frequent has changed, you can rest assured that Greece will always know how to show you a good time. Whether you’re after cultural outings, quality cuisine and fine drinking or adrenaline-raising outdoor activities, you’re definitely in the right country.

The telecommunications sector in Greece is one of the very few sectors (housing being the other one) where the financial crisis actually did some good; with increasing demand for better services at better prices, you can now enjoy a wide range of telephone and internet service packages, which combine TV, landlines and mobile phones.

International relocation is not easy. It requires plenty of research and thorough planning on your behalf -- and still, you need to be prepared for the unexpected. But choosing professional and skilled moving company and shippers will go a long way towards ensuring that your goods will arrive safely in Greece. Just bear in mind that it might actually be way more economic to buy a lot of things from scratch in Greece than to transport your belongings, so you’ll need to consider carefully.
