Top Ten Countries With the Most Fascinating Cultures and Histories
The Top Ten
China has an incredible amount of history, there's no way you could remember it all. Being Chinese, I celebrate the holidays and eat Chinese food and grew up on their stories. So maybe I'm a bit biased, but I don't think anyone could argue that its culture and history are extremely interesting.
Absolutely agree. In spite of Chinese food, Chinese culture is rooted from its far-reaching history, it is truly fascinating it you tap into it. It is also influencing the world
The most sophisticated, influential, diverse and unique culture and history to ever exist. Wish I could live amidst the Orient, the Far East, and experience the best of Chinese food, philosophy, poetry and everything else.
China has an amazing culture as well as great history. I really enjoy learning about the Chinese calender. I am a rooster according to the Chinese calender.
Indian (or as I prefer, "Hindu", not in the religious but in the cultural sense) is a completely alien and unique culture. In ancient times, the inhabitants of this naturally-rich land had incredibly profound ideas proper of a very sophisticated individuals and their strong intellectual interest. Their attention to ethics made them to have the incredible modern insight that the slaughter of animals is unjust and cruel, forbidding it as early as the 7th century B.C. Wow! Among their astounding contributions to mathematics are early proofs and the positional numerals, and a surprising fascination and understanding of big numbers, along with their contribution to other sciences, all of them fundamental to our modern world. It produced the most perdurable superstitious practices as well, such as meditation and ayurveda. Unfortunately, like all the great ancient cultures, it suffered a crushing decadence in its way to actuality.
I strongly feel that india has the richest culture in the world..india is a versatile country,which has various religions,culture, dance forms , languages ,what not...
india is very heritageous..
India had Great bath during the time when most countries were uncivillized..that's ashtonishing to know how intlligent indinas are to construct such a big pool with correct dimensions and mathematics..
different parts of india had different traditions unlike other countries..
so many more things to say..
A big thanks to the Muslims who shaped Indian culture today. The food, the music (courtyard dances, Adab! ), The language (Urdu) and architecture. India as it's known wouldn't be so without the influence of the Muslims. Whether you accept that or not, I know it's hard as Modi is pushing an anti Muslim rhetoric all over the country. Good luck to the future of India, I hope they learn that prejudice ain't getting them nowhere. Muslims are part and parcel of India's history and present too.
India has the world's most beautiful architecture, the Taj Mahal, built out of love by Shah Jahan. A truly mesmerizing place that must be seen! The beautiful sunrise behind the incredible monument and the bright rays of the full moon that fall on it makes it a paradise. It is astonishing to see how clever Indians are to construct such an amazing monument that is symmetrical and adheres to mathematical formulas in every way!
The Trojan War?
Greek mythology is fascinating and entertaining!
Greece is a classic civilization we all still learn from to this day. From their beliefs, government system, and obviously their mathematicians and scientists, who've discovered some of the most important and basic concepts that we still build upon to this day. Their ancient history is absolutely fascinating!
In my opinion Greece is one of the most artistic countries.
Vibrant culture, fascinating history. Truly the most wonderful Western civilization.
Japan is fascinating within it's entertainment industry, so I'll never forget it!
The Island Nation has remained aloof from the world through centuries of separation and isolationist policies. With the rise of the modern technology and international commerce, this has create a unique mix of tradition you won't find anywhere else with the cutting edge of the modern. No country is as unique, or has a history so steeped in legend that at certain points of history, they become inseparable.
My all-time favorite holiday was to Japan. The layout, organization, hospitality, food and peacefulness is just fabulous. The locals are extremely friendly and polite, as well.
One of my very favorite countries to visit - for their food, hospitality, their efficient public transportation system, bullet train, Japanese culture, lovely people, and their fashion!
This culture has been alive for a long time and there is so much interest that can go into the Egyptian culture, plus there are so many ancient relics that have been found, I personal find this culture incredibly interesting.
Ancient Egypt is one of the most interesting subjects I've ever been taught in class. It has such a rich past, that's so full of mystery.
Egypt's history and culture are very rich richer than bill gates
Egypt has a very amazing past!
Their history in dance and other forms of art has always captivated my attention!
Russia in the 1900s was interesting
Soviet history is particularly interesting in my opinion. But the more obscure regions of Russia, like Kaliningrad or Tannu-Tuva, or the most interesting.
The Greatest European Culture! Brits gave us biggest Empire, lots of modern technology, fashion, science, laws, music, film, artists etc...
Absolutely the greatist literature! Brits have never capitulate, also they burried 4 empires, and greatest modern country USA is also the descendants of Brits.
P.S. How this russian scumbag can be higher than England? Kremlin farm of trolls is now even on toptens?
Wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Beautiful people,places and a glorious history to be proud of.
Ah, cheerio, England is definitely a fascinating country. Even Pokèmon celebrated that with the Galar region!
It is awesome with great cultures and interesting food, it may be small but great to explore with all the great walking places
Italy is a beautiful place, with a very unique culture. Not only is it pretty important today, but it was also the center of the Roman Empire and Republic. Florence, Rome, and Venice- Italy has some of the greatest cities in the world!
I will not pretend to know much about Italy, but it's a place I've always wanted to go to, just to get a peak at Venice!
Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world! And Florence is the true City of Love.
Italy is very fascinating and has a great culture!
I've actually visited France, and I take French in school. The language is beautiful and it's a very romantic place!
Sure one of the most famous, should be in top 5.
France is a very cool place. I've always wanted to go, my best est friend named Emma got to go there when make a wish foundation helped. I'm not going to give you her whole life story but it was pretty cool, and helps me remember her.
French culture is very sophisticated and if you really take time to study it, it is very interesting and broad in many areas pertaining to food, music, architcture, etc.
It is the home of Jerusalem, and even for people who are not religious, it's still amazing to learn about the the birthplace of the three major religions of the world.
After two thousand years of being scattered throughout the world, Israel has still retained their language and identity...
The son of God was born in Bethlehem. There is so much history and culture surrounding this country. It should be number one.
This should be number 1
A country with thousands of years of continuous history, glorious architectural and musical traditions, and much to offer to foreigners. A country that has survived dozens of invaders and continues to exist as a single state today, from the first Elamite empire all the way to the modern Shahdom, then the Republic. It stands as unmatched today as it did in 510 because, 10 AD, 300 AD, 1000 AD, 1750, and many other time periods where it dominated the near east with a highly refined and trained military. It is one of the few countries to never be colonized and it is one of the most authentic and most understudied countries that Asia has to offer.
I think Iranian People are so kind and hospitable.
They have traditional culture.
They are really great people
If your Irish your amazing
Jacksepticeye and McGregor
If people knew the history it'd be number one!
I'm part Irish!
America has done a lot in the short history it has been through.
Although it is young, USA has lots of history and has a mix of different cultures around the world.
Um, stop hating on the USA people just because most of you live here. We're like super more interesting than these other countries!
GO Donald trump
The coke is great, so fresh
Mexico holds a lot of culture and tradition. The ancient buildings and towns are preserved with love. The people are super genuine and welcoming. Great food, music, views and energy. Mexico holds one of the seven wonders of the world, the pyramid.
Each part of the country has its own tradition, it's so rich culturally and the people there is so nice!
Ancient pyramids, colonial towns, and rich culture, oh and the FOOD!
I'll admit, this is mostly because I am in love with the Scottish accent, but since seeing Brave, I have been super fascinated by the stories and mystical places the movie was based on.
I voted this one. To make history, I hope Scotland becomes independent in the future!
Scotland used to be a monarchy, which is interesting. It also has interesting food, and the scenery is beautiful, the accent is also awesome
I will honour my heritage
Yes Ethiopia is the country of god and religion and everything, and though it may not be the richest we are very nice and welcoming
Ethiopia is where it all began! It is the most fascinating and beautiful country in the world! Religion, civilization, farming etc have all their origins in this ancient wonderful country!
Ethiopia is the only African country that never been colonized. It beat Italy in battle of adwa. It has more than 85 languages and cultures. The people of Ethiopia are so warm and welcoming. Ethiopia is a very divers beautiful country.
So true! such a beautiful country with beautiful people! proud to be Ethiopian!
I strongly believe Australia is the most fascinating and interesting country/continent. In the universe
Rich culture in the indigenous community that can rival many other older civilisations with its unique ways, may not be as old or have as much recorded history but is truly a beautiful culture
A country where saying "mate" is hip, and not only that but with a neat aboriginal culture, this place has it all! Not to mention a great art scene!
Australia is so close I can't wait for my and every other austalian to see it in the top 10;0
When asking about culture, Spain can give you whatever you want
The most interesting and diverse country in Europe. Great food. Beautiful landscapes and people.The North has one of the most magnificent coast lines I have ever seen
Spain is great but I'm surprised Brazil isn't on the list... Would've voted for it
It is an amazing country
Happy birthday Jerimiah
Wales is a lovely country when I visited Swansea in Wales and when I went in to town everybody was so caring and helpful.
Wales is beautiful and underrated.
Rich in culture, language, eisteddfod, history and a beautiful place
I live in wales there's not much to say but we deserve it people here are rough as but we're really nice
Turkish people are amazing. They are so warm, helpful and welcoming people that I've ever seen. And just to you know, the capital of Turkey is "Ankara" not Istanbul. But you should go and see Istanbul because oh my god this city is a total dream... The history and the view... In my opinion, Turkey is the best.
A wandering from east to west throughout the history, adopting and changing the cultures they travel through and they arrive, a fantastic melting pot, yet a single and stark nation with a very rich culture with all that means. What can be more interested than that?
It's just amazing with too many historical places. Every people must go and see Sultan Ahmed
Too much history, great people, food, and music.
A mixture of warrior culture, nomadic culture and Hellenic culture... A crossroad between east west north and south!
And one of the oldest civilization still standing today!
Long history great traditions
Amazing nature and people
Great people, great climate... did you know it was one of the few countries in Africa to have gotten independence from colonialists, and yes using homemade guns, bombs, arrows and so on, and they won! Wonderful history!
African cultures in general are always so awesome to learn about, but Kenya in particular is the country I have the most knowledge on, so it's the one I'm picking.
I call on all anthropologists in the world to come to Kenya...there is much to learn in Kenya...immense knowledge
The beauty and splendor of this nation is sensational. From its flora and fauna to its majestic features!
Lots of llamas
Very ancient history and traditions that have been passed down since ancient times. A unique culture, that has survived the lowest points of human history"
One of the most ancient countries and cultures. Mystical place with churches and ruins on every corner. A culture that has endured and persevered through toughest of times without losing its identity.
Armenia is a land of mystifying beauty and an aincient history that nobody really fully understands.
