Other cultures and nations, such as the Latin and Frankish states (Frankokratia), the Ottoman Empire, the Venetian Republic, the Genoese Republic, and the British Empire have also left their influence on modern Greek culture, although historians credit the Greek War of Independence with revitalising Greece and giving birth to a single, cohesive entity of its multi-faceted culture. In ancient times, Greece was the birthplace of Western culture. Mazlish, Bruce. ''Civilization And Its Contents.'' Stanford University Press, 2004. p. 3. Web. 25 Jun. 2012.

Greece to Berlin (Berlin, Germany) by a relay of torch-bearing runners. While the relay is sometimes believed to be an ancient tradition, it was in fact the wholly modern creation of Lewald and Diem: the ancient games included a ritual flame commemorating the theft of fire from the gods by Prometheus, but no torch relay. The show is free of charge and broadcast live Tuesday to Friday from midnight to 2:00am, from the Radio Nacional (LRA Radio Nacional)'s auditorium. The show has three parts. In the first one Dolina discusses an historic event (Mostly European, Greek (Greece), or South American history). The second part is humorous. Dolina goes through "Life" style magazines, and while reading the articles, he starts improvising stories that can go quite far from the original article. In the third part he sings songs that the audience ask for. Dolina is known for his vast knowledge of the tango (Tango (dance)).

. "Registered Expositions" or Universal Expositions Universal expositions encompass universal themes that affect the full gamut of human experience, and international and corporate participants are required to adhere to the theme in their representations. Universal expositions are usually held less frequently than specialized or international expositions because they are more expensive as they require total design of pavilion buildings from the ground up. As a result, nations compete for the most outstanding or memorable structure—recent examples include Japan, France, Morocco & Spain at Expo '92 (Seville Expo '92). Recent Universal Expositions include Brussels Expo
