Touring Europe is a rite of passage for many young people today. It’s a chance for them to break away. But it’s not just young people who should sample the delights of mainland Europe. So, if you’re thinking of taking a tour of the continent, here are some of the places you have to visit.
France is one of the most culturally impressive countries in the whole world. In terms of art, there’s nowhere else that can rival it. It has the Louvre, and a thousand other wonderful art galleries to explore, especially in Paris. It also has some amazing vineyards for the wine and champagne enthusiasts among you. There’s no better way to spend an afternoon in France than touring a great vineyard and doing a bit of wine tasting. You really can’t go to Europe without going to France, so this is where you should start.
Of all the Scandinavian countries in Northern Europe, the one that you definitely need to visit is Sweden. There are many reasons for this. But the best reason is that the people are so friendly and accommodating. The cities are really impressive too. Most people don’t think of Stockholm as one of the world’s great cities, but it really is. And it’s also home to the ABBA museum, and who could resist visiting there? In all seriousness though, it’s a beautiful place, with some of the continent’s most unique architecture too.
If you ask me, Denmark is one of the most underrated countries in all of Europe. The National Museum of Denmark is one of the nation’s most impressive national institutions. It chronicles the cultural history of the country and the world. And, of course, it’s the home of the original Legoland, making it great for families. It’s been voted as one of the most pleasant and affordable places to live too. So, you might want to get yourself a Denmark green card and stay there a little longer!
Greece is where modern civilisation was born in the ancient period. This is where Plato and Aristotle spent their days thinking, writing and teaching. They gave us the idea of democracy and taught us how to live. Unfortunately, Greece has been put through some difficult times recently, but it’s still a beautiful and friendly place to visit. And it’s packed with ruins and buildings that are still surviving from ancient times. It’s a very relaxed society too, so you should be able to chill out a little!
Germany is one of the big superpowers of modern Europe. And if you want to head there, you should go straight to Berlin because this is where all the action is happening. The city has only been back to its unified form for 25 years, but it’s really thriving. Berlin is now a very young and vibrant city. The nightlife and music scene is fantastic. And young people from all over Europe are choosing to live there permanently. So you should definitely see what all the hype is about while you’re there.
