Europe encompasses an area of 10,180,000km2 (3,930,000 square miles), stretching from Asia to the Atlantic, and from Africa to the Arctic. European countries welcome more than 480 million international visitors per year, more than half of the global market, and 7 of the 10 most visited countries are European nations.
It's easy to see why - a well preserved cultural heritage, open borders and efficient infrastructure makes visiting Europe a breeze, and rarely will you have to travel more than a few hours before you can immerse yourself in a new culture, and dive into a different phrasebook. Although it is the world's smallest continent in land surface area, there are profound differences between the cultures and ways of life in its countries.
Europe is a fantastic place home to great tourist attractions like the Eiffel Tower, famous beautiful squares like the Old Market Square in Poznan, stunning beaches like Zlatni Rat in Croatia, and hundreds of historic sites to catch your eye such as the Acropolis in Athens. See below a neat list of ten of the most visited tourist attractions in Europe: Tower of London, Louvre Museum, Charles Bridge, Colosseum, Reichstag Parliament Building, Kilmainham Gaol, Church of the Sacred Family, Anne Frank House, Edinburgh Castle, a lot more can be seen and done when you visit Europe.

Culture & Heritage
The cultural heritage of the European Union is a rich and diverse mosaic of cultural and creative expressions, our inheritance from previous generations of Europeans and our legacy for those to come. It includes natural, built and archaeological sites; museums; monuments, artworks; historic cities; literary, musical, and audio-visual works, and the knowledge, practices and traditions of European citizens.
