Help with some greek I want to say in a video.

Hi everyone! I will be traveling to Greece soon and want to make a short video on it. I have some things I want to say on screen in greek and was wondering if someone who speaks fluent Greek could tell me if Im on the right track. Any help would be really appreciated. I want to make it sound as authentic as possible since I mostly used google translate because my greek is still very basic.

Here´s what I want to say in English..

"There´s something about Greece that keeps me coming back. The people, it´s history, its culture, it´s beaches. Everything! This a a beautiful country. This is my fourth time in athens."

Here´s what I think I should say in greek..

Υπάρχει κάτι για την Ελλάδα που με κρατάει πίσω. Οι άνθροποι, είναι οστορία, είναι ο πολιτισνός, είναι παραλίες. Τα πάντα! Αυτή είναι μια όμορφη χώρα. Αυτή είναι η τέταρτη φορά μου στιν Αθηνα!

Any help would be very appreciated. By the way I am fluent in Spanish and English if anyone has any questions. Thanks and have a great day!

Υπάρχει κάτι στην Ελλάδα (για την Ελλαδα means "for Greece") που με φέρνει πίσω (κρατάει πίσω means "holds back"). Ειναι οι άνθρωποι, είναι η ιστορία, είναι ο πολιτισμός, είναι οι παραλίες (keep the "is the", both verb and article in every word). Τα πάντα! Αυτή είναι μια όμορφη χώρα. Αυτή είναι η τέταρτη φορά μου στην Αθηνα!

*άνθρωποι

Also, simply "Είναι μία όμορφη (ή πανέμορφη) χώρα" sounds more natural.

Agreed on all the rest.

To make it sound a bit more natural, I would change what Zabrunga said above to:

Η Ελλάδα έχει κάτι που με κάνει να γυρνάω ξάνα και ξανά. Oι άνθρωποι, η ιστορία, ο πολιτισμός, οι παραλίες... τα λατρέυω όλα! Είναι μια πανέμορφη χώρα κάι είναι τώρα η τέταρτη φορά μου στην Αθηνα!
