Greece (Hellenic Republic): Geography Quiz
What is the Hellenic Republic?
The Hellenic Republic is Greece. The English-speaking world calls the country Greece. The citizens of the country call it Hellas. The official name for the country is the Hellenic Republic.
Where is the Hellenic Republic (Greece)?
Greece occupies the southernmost tip of the Balkan peninsula. The mainland has borders with Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey. The more than 2000 islands stretch from the Ionian Sea in the west to the Aegean Sea and Turkey in the east.
Where is the Quiz?
I have published three geography articles about Greece—
- Greek Islands: Cyclades—Mýkonos and Delos
- Greece: Oracle of Delphi
- Athens, Greece: Acropolis, Pláka, and Syntagma Square
I had been writing a series of geography Hubs, and had included a quiz in each one. After I published the first of my Greece articles—without a quiz—one of my readers commented to the effect "I am shocked! Where's the quiz?" I explained that I had planned to publish two more articles about Greece, and that after the third one, I would create a quiz which included questions about all three areas.
All three Greek Hubs have been published, so now it's time to take the quiz. I suggest you read my Hubs first, but that's up to you. Please post your score in the comments section, and if you have suggestions for other geography articles and quizzes you would like me to publish, please post your suggestions in the comments section, too.
Note: The information pertaining to some of the questions—and answers—neither appeared in the text nor in the videos of any of the three quizzes. It's entirely new material. (You didn't want the quiz to be easy, did you?)
