GREECE - Hellenic Republic / Ελληνική Δημοκρατία

Officially the Hellenic Republic (Greek: Ελληνική Δημοκρατία, Ellīnikī́ Dīmokratía and known since ancient times as Hellas Greek: Ελλάς,Ellás), is a country located in southeastern Europe. According to the 2011 census, Greece's population is around 10.8 million. Athens is the nation's capital and largest city, followed by Thessaloniki, which is commonly referred to as the co-capital. Greece is strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Situated on the southern tip of the Balkan peninsula, it shares land borders with Albania to the northwest, the Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria to the north and Turkey to the northeast. Greece consists of nine geographic regions: Macedonia, Central Greece, the Peloponnese,Thessaly, Epirus, the Aegean Islands (including the Dodecanese and Cyclades), Thrace, Crete, and the Ionian Islands. 


 These beautiful airmail covers sent by my good friend Dimitrios from Greece on September 22, 2015 and I received them on 13 October 2015. He specially requested in the post office for clear postmark, so the cover came with perfect postmarks. The stamps are gifted by Holger from Belgium and Thomas from Greece. Thank You Dimitrios for the big help.




This is my first registered airmail cover from Greece. The beautiful cover sent by Boris by exchanging covers with him. Thank You Boris for the nice cover.
