Europe is the world’s second-smallest continent by surface area with Russia being the largest country by both area and population (although the country has territory in both Europe and Asia). The Vatican City is considered the smallest one. Europe is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa with 11% of the world’s population living on it.
Europe has it all – the continent combines the old-world charm with the cosmopolitan spirits of today’s discerning travelers. Visitors can go to the Roman ruins and admire Renaissance art in Italy, wander around the picturesque medieval hill towns in Spain and Portugal, go skiing in the Alps in Switzerland and Austria, see the castles in Germany or travel along to the fjords of Norway.
The Czech Republic, Hungary and Bulgaria are just some of the post-communist countries in Central and Eastern Europe that also have a lot to offer to tourists coming from all parts of the world to experience “something different”.
Greece and Turkey have been well-known tourist destinations for years.
