These are the 10 most visited European countries

For most of us, Europe has existed as a distant land that has constantly intrigued and enthused us. It has surprised us as a continent that has witnessed numerous wars, but which has given the world the most beautiful works of art, literature and architecture. Every decade and every century has produced unpredictable developments in Europe, and yet it has given the world something of immense value throughout its history.

There is also the natural beauty of Europe, which has profoundly influenced all those who have seen it up close. Forests and vineyards cast a magical spell on the spectator and heal the troubled mind. If Paris marks the way for the latest trend of fashion, the islands of Greece evoke images of a past wrapped in the mists of time. Germany and Switzerland, Portugal and Spain, each European country offers a unique experience. There are some European countries that are more sought after than others, because of the special experience they provide.
