I’ve travelled to many countries across the world, Europe included. Having been to Europe a few times I’ve seen pretty much all of the countries. You might be surprised to see how many there are to choose from! Without further delay let’s look at my top 10 countries to visit in this beautiful continent.
1- Bulgaria. Yes, I am a humble person, but I would not hesitate to say Bulgaria is one of the best places in Europe to visit. While it is far from being a metropolitan city like Moscow or Shanghai, as a land locked country it is more accessible to mass tourism and therefore tends to have more visitors than some of the more popular tourist spots. What you get in Bulgaria is a quiet, clean, friendly and safe country. Many Americans have settled there and we converse with them well.
2- Italy. Ah Italy, the land of the reliable plastic wheelchair, the home of Pizza and self-made pasta. The great weather, the food and the charm of Italy are hard to beat. The south of Italy is criteria 1 and if you’re in the south you must visit Naples, Sorrento and Capri. These are the great cities of Italy.
3- Spain. A very long country with a very long coastline. The south of Spain is predominantly Mediterranean and has lots to offer. The north of Spain has rolling countryside with a very strong sense of culture which is quite different from the mainly Spanish coastal areas. The east of Spain is also fascinating, with the eastern International Zone combining a strong sense of Spanish heritage with relaxation and travel.
4- France. A very large country with lots to see and do. French culture is very different to that of any other part of Europe and I believe French people have an unwavering passion for their homeland. The old towns are majestic and to some extent feel like European cities. Paris is the jewel of the French Empire. It really is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
5- Museums. In English and attributable to the influence if America, French culture has also imported many of its own art forms. New museums are opened all the time and exhibits are permanent. The Louvre is the permanent collection of art masterpieces held within a breath-taking fortress. Or if you prefer more subtle pursuits, you can frequent the theatres to watch European notables perform their up-coming epics.
6- German. The enlightenment tyrants, mostly driven by their quest for God, have left a remarkable pattern within Europe’s cities. Once again, after spending hundreds of thousands of years as a separate cultural group, the Germans came to believe that one can’t be French and be anything else. This has led to split identity among various tribes who are still extant.
