Travel Europe with us
The second smallest continent in the world, Europe covers 2% of the
Earth’s surface and 6.7% of the Earth’s land. With 47 countries and a
population of 742.5 million (2013 census), it is the third most
populated continent in the world. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the
west, Arctic Ocean on the north, Ural mountains in the east, and the
Mediterranean Sea to the South, a visit to the European continent is
visually magnificent and historically significant.
Having to its credit, the tag of being the largest economy in the world,
Europe is also home to one of the seven wonders of the world, The
Colosseum in Italy.
While its history dates back to the advent of life on Earth, it’s
influence first spread over the world with the reign of Alexander-The
Great. Later of course a handful of the European countries as Britain,
Portugal, France and the Dutch went on to rule most other countries of
the world at different periods. In more recent times, Europe has been
the center of both World Wars, and it is this upheaval in the continent
that makes it historically compelling.
Home to some of the most prominent and captivating monuments and
structures that are also listed as UNESCO world heritage sites, every
part of Europe stands tall as a trying testimony of its glorious and
disconcerted past. Distinctly divided into three regions- Western
Europe, Central Europe, and Eastern Europe- each one is more enchanting
that the other for a tourist. What adds to the continent’s charm is its
diversified geographical bifurcation with the Scottish highlands in the
northern parts, Hungarian plains down south, mountains in the Central
Europe, and highlands in the southern area.
You can start your day at delightful Italy where you visit Rome to know
why it wasn’t built in a day. The afternoon can be spent at the rather
chivalrous London where you have the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral,
and its other lovely tourist spots waiting to greet you. Spend the
evening by the River Seine in Paris and enjoy the starlit night right
under the Eiffel Tower, celebrating love in the City of Love. Call this a
teaser of the thrill the European continent has to offer.
Some of the most loved tourist places of the continent other than those
mentioned above, include Moscow in Russia, Berlin in Germany, Budapest
in Hungary, Madrid in Spain and the Swiss countryside. This continent is
also known for its world-renowned cuisine, so if you’re a food lover,
this place is even more enticing.
