Larnaca, Cyprus

The reign of Pericles in Athens marks the end of chapter 1 in the evolution of democracy. Athenian governance allowed adult male citizens to vote directly on matters of state. Pericles set the stage for the vote that made Cyprus a member of the European Union in 2004 and for the British vote that withdrew the United Kingdom from the EU in 2016. [2004]
