Greece was the first country in Europe, which could be called civilized in the modern sense of the word. Though there had been isolated 'civilized' cities elsewhere in Europe, notably Troy in modern day Turkey, Greece's great influence on the world came through a clutch of strong city states, notably Athens. Ancient Greece became the first great European empire, under Alexander the Great, with its influence reaching as far east as India. Greece's advances in literature, theatre, philosophy, architecture, sculpture, law, politics, and science are respected to this day - as is its wonderful mythology.
