Greek culture has evolved many times over thousands of years. Starting with the Mycenean civilizations and into the classical age, Greek culture has been formed from many other civilizations and influenced our many cultures today. The Greek people often have a strong link with their past emphasizing the classical period and all throughout today. They are known as a mostly friendly people who are known for their hospitality and somewhat relaxed attitude towards daily life, somewhat like here in Hawaii in a sort of “Hang Loose” kind of way.

The art and architecture of Greece has influenced western art and architecture greatly throughout the years. Remains of ancient Greek architecture still stand today and have been well documented throughout the centuries. Surviving Greek paintings are very rare due to the fact that they were mostly painted on wood. The finest Greek art was admired for hundreds of years after they were conceived, but unfortunately eventually disappeared later when they were no longer adequately protector.
