The continent of Europe, is the second smallest of the continents and the one we call home. (Depending on how you measure it Australia is smaller). Europe is rich in natural resources and wonderfully diverse in both scenery and culture. It is also the centre for the birth of western civilisation as we know it today. Because of this there is so much history on your doorstep. This ranges from the ancient civilisations of the Greeks and the Roman Empire right through to the quick changing face of Europe today. It even has standing stones older than the Egyptian pyramids.
The scenery ranges from the the high snowy peaks of the alps and the geysers of Iceland to the flat lands of the Netherlands and Belgium. It is no surprise that it contains some of the most visited countries in the world by tourists. These include Germany, France and the United Kingdom. There truly is something for everyone.
Europe occupies nearly one-fifteenth of the world’s total land area. It is bordered on the north by the Arctic Ocean, on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, and on the south by the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, the Kuma-Manych Depression in Russia, and the Caspian Sea. Its eastern boundary is often debated as it merges with Asia.
