Greece Ranked Among Highest Beer Taxing Countries in EU

New data shows that Greece’s tax on beer is among the top five in Europe. Each European country is required to have a Special Consumption Tax on beer, the minimum of which is 1.87 euro per 100 liters. Greece is far from the minimum, however, with a tax rate of 0.21 euros per bottle of beer.

Finland, Ireland, Great Britain and Sweden come in just before Greece with the highest tax rates on beer in Europe.

The Day the First Greeks Arrived in Australia

It was a day much like any other, on August 27, 1829 when the first-ever recorded Greeks set foot on the continent of Australia.

They were seven convicted pirates who had plied their trade on the Mediterranean Sea and had been forced to serve their sentences on the continent of Australia on the other side of the world.

Anyone visiting the Mycenaean tombs in Mazarakata or Lakithra, or the old temple by Porto Skala, will find new fibreglass information plates. Hopefully they'll remain readable.
