Commenting article: Greek Culture and Traditions - Where the West Meets the East

Contemporary Greek culture and traditions are very rich and diverse, reflecting Greece’s location at the crossing point where the West meets the East and the country’s great and turbulent history.

The culture of Greece has evolved over thousands of years - dating from the Paleolithic era and the birth of the great Minoan, (2600-1500 BC), Mycenaean (1500-1150 BC) and Cycladic civilizations through the Classical Period (6th - 4th centuries BC) - the Golden Age, reaching great levels of prosperity that resulted in an unprecedented cultural boom, expressed in architecture, drama, science and philosophy, and nurtured in Athens under a democratic environment, through the sequence of invasions and domination: by the Macedonians, the Romans, the Byzantine Empire and the 400 years of Ottoman rule.

During the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, Greece saw monarchies and ousting of royalty, fierce political fights, assassinations, and dictatorships, wars that added neighboring territories and new population, but also brought economic devastation and poverty. After the defeat of Germany and the end of World War II, Greece joined NATO in 1952 and experienced a bitter civil war between communist and anticommunist forces.

The moronic F YROMian again showing his frustration towards Greeks and the poor Pella tablet. Better watch out with that tablet! It's a curse tablet and you might get infected by that curse (but, as you F YROMians are all oligophrenics -- sophisticated Greek word: look it up in a dictionary! also look up "sophisticated", another..., well, sophisticated Greek word (do pardon the repetition) -- curses might not actually affect you, being oligophrenics is a pretty hugish curse in itself)

My fried, if you are Greek and you are writing these, or you are a bitter person or you are from those who consider themselves andvanceds and for that lose their roots and with them a part of their identity. I won't make any ferther argument ( even if i can, i have a degree at folk civilization (Greek) ) the only think i will say is that this article is very good at the level of a simple orientation in greek culture and greek way of living despite the fuct that some more informations about greek music could have be givened like the relations of Byzantin music and rempetiko.
