Europe is a continent of fifty sovereign states. It also has seven non-sovereign territories. Aside from that, there are four recognized republics. And then there are two more that are unrecognized.
It is also the second smallest continent. The whole of Europe covers only 2% of the world’s surface. The continent is home to 11% of the world’s total population.
What makes Europe ideal for travelers is that most of its countries lie next to each other. You can visit Spain and swing by Portugal in a span of a few days. Or you can go to Paris and visit Switzerland the next day.
And what’s so amazing is that the Visa that you get is the Visa that you’ll use for most of these countries. No separate processing is needed, thanks to the Schengen Visa.
As you already know by now, Europe has a rich history.
Its civilization goes back thousands of years. And the buildings can prove it.
The cities (and its buildings) are obviously old. Especially in cities like Rome, its architecture goes back to as far back as 2,000 years ago.
These cities are solid reminders of the continent’s glorious past. They are full of stories of war, of victories and defeat. You can walk on the Acropolis in the same area as Socrates once walked.
Or you can go to some fishing village in Italy, that’s more than a hundred years old!
Wherever you go in Europe, it will always be one great historical experience.
It’s an everyday celebration!
The continent is popular for its calendar being full of festivals all year round.
It has holidays with historical significance like the Semana Santa orthodox Carnivale Venezia.
There are also the absurd-sounding holidays. One such example is the cheese rolling competition in Gloucestershire. That’s something interesting you need to see!
All year round, you get to enjoy the friendliness of the European locals.
There’s music, and there’s film, comedy, food, and a lot of wine.
And oh, before I forget, there’s beer in Germany and a lot of glamor and fashion in Paris.
Whatever it is, you name it. Europe has a festival for it!
Aside from the food, the locals, the history, and the festivals, Europe is a hub of everything nice.
