Greece is a country in southern Europe officially known as the Hellenic Republic. It is often considered to be the cradle of western civilization and is the birthplace of democracy, the Olympic Games, and much more. In addition to the mainland, it is made up of 1400 islands, of which 227 are inhabited. The largest of these islands is Crete. Greece has a population of 10,815,197 and speaks Greek as an official language. It is bordered by Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north, and shares a small border with Turkey to the east.

Greece's sole feature on The Amazing Race for the longest time was in season 9. It was not been visited again until the 29th season, although at the time the country has been hit with a serious economic crisis, which had sometimes resulted in political instability. It was also revisited recently by The Amazing Race China.


Political Subdivisions

Greece is divided into 13 Peripheries. The Amazing Race has visited five of these peripheries.
