Destination: Europe

Europe, notably Ancient Greece, is considered the cradle of Western culture. The Greeks and Romans left a legacy in Europe that is evident in the current thoughts, laws, minds and languages. Ancient Greece was a union of city-states, in which a primitive form of democracy developed. Athens was its most powerful and developed city, and a cradle of teaching in the time of Pericles. Citizen forums took place, and state policing gave the order to the emergence of the most notable classical philosophers, such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.
