Europe is one of the most sought after travel geographies in the world, with 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.
Most European countries are members of the European Union (EU), and that makes travel within Europe quite convenient. The Euro, which is a currency that all these countries use and also easy border controls between signatory countries means that you can plan your travel across countries with equal ease!
