A blank map of Greece? Yes, we have that. Actually, more than one.
Blank maps can sometimes be quite hard to find. Typically a map is displayed with many of the area’s features already visible. However, what if you need a blank map for educational purposes?
Perhaps you want a blank map to create a more interactive geography experience. This can be used by students to shade in the distribution of an area’s population, raw materials, or industry. It can also be used to detail the locations of the country’s main cities, mountains, and rivers.
Whatever you need them for we have a variety of blank maps available to assist you with your personal study or lessons.
Officially known as the ‘Hellenic Republic’, Greece boasts a vibrant history. It is widely considered the birthplace of western philosophy and culture. Greece was home to one of the earliest and most advanced human civilizations dating back to the Bronze Age.
Greece is geographically located in Southern Europe but politically it is considered to be part of Western Europe. Since 1981 Greece has been a member of the European Union.
The country spans an area of 131,957 square kilometers (50,948 square miles); with about a fifth of that area made up of around 1,500 islands. Greece occupies the southernmost part of the Balkan Peninsula extending into the Aegean, Cretan, Ionian, Mediterranean and Thracian seas.
Greece is divided into the 13 administrative regions:
A 14th region is Mount Athos, however, this is an autonomous region made up of a monastic community under Greek sovereignty.
Greece is located in the southernmost part of Europe and has the longest coastline of any European country.
The majority of people living in Greece occupy its cities. Athens, the capital city, is the largest in Greece with a population of over 3.7 million.
Greece’s natural landscape comprises elevated hilly areas and mountainous regions. Greece is one of the most mountainous countries in Europe.
To the west of the country are the Pindus mountains, which make up a stretch of the Dinaric Alps. Here the land rises above 2,500 meters. The Dinaric Alps house several lakes and rivers, creating a varied landscape of rocky heights and indented wetlands.
Greece’s most iconic and indeed largest mountain is Mount Olympus, which stands some 2,918 meters tall.
South-west of Olympus in Thessaly the impressive Meteora rock formations can be found. These impressive displays of natural phenomena appear, as the meaning of their name suggests, to be ‘suspended in the air’.
Away from mainland Greece are several island groups and Greece’s two largest islands; Crete and Evia.
