Highest roads of Greece

Located in southeastern Europe, Greece is the southernmost of the countries of the Balkan Peninsula. About 80% of Greece consists of mountains or hills, thus making Greece one of the most mountainous countries of Europe. It’s a mountainous, peninsular mainland jutting out into the sea at the southern end of the Balkans, with more than 300 larger or smaller mountains.
