What is the difference between Sparta and Athens.?

The difference between Sparta and Athens is that in Sparta, the ruling government was a military government, while in Athens, the ruling government was a democracy. In Sparta, the people focus on military matters. That is because of the fear of an uprising by their helots. In Athens, a democracy ruled. People voted on many matters such as which one they thought was the most dangerous to their testate and even military and naval expeditions against rival statutes. The different arts such as sculpture and poetry also flourished more in Athens. Athenians believed that one should also focus themselves on matters other than military ones. Athens focused on trades, technologies, civilizations, studies,... while Sparta focused on the military. That's why Spartan warriors were the most fierce warriors in Ancient Greece. Athens also treated their children differently. For example: Boys were taught reading, writing, mathematics, music, poetry, and sports. While in Sparta, they took them away from their parents at 7 yrs. old, to train for war. Further, in Sparta, both - boys and girls went to school, but in Athens, boys went to school but the girls did not, but attended basically, house work.

What are the differentces of Sparta and the Athens?

Athens's government ruled as a democracy they were the 1st to ever do this only wealthy male land owners voted (Aristrocrary) Sparta's government ruled as an oligarchy (more then one king) by 2 kings. Athens is built below the acropolis which stands on a hill above all of Athens. Port city to allow trade. Sparta is surrounded by mountains, which makes it difficult for it to be invaded. Athens was a very creative city-state. Gave birth to the philosopher's, democracy, art... they believed in a quality education for boys only. You could go into the army or navy if you wanted to. (if you were a boy) Sparta's boys did not have to work or have an education but train to be warriors from a young age. Athens traded and Sparta didn't. Athens girls weren't regarded as important by the Athenian. Girls could be taught at home (if they had rich parents) girls were not allowed to take part in anything to do with war, business or education. Sparta's girls were to grow up to be the moms of warriors, they took part in all the training because fit ladies produced fit babies, who would fight.
