Top Ten Countries With the Most Fascinating Cultures and Historieskeycha1n
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. - keycha1n
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
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.
Absolutely the most culturally rich country. No question.V 18 Comments
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! - keycha1n
In my opinion Greece is one of the most artistic countries. - SamuiNeko
Vibrant culture, fascinating history. Truly the most wonderful Western civilization.

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!
I strongly believe India has the world's best culture in the whole universe. It has more than 25 languages, more than 30 different traditions, it has 6 classical dances and it has 30 unique tastes.
India is a very developed culture (just look at Bollywood! ), and it has a truly rich history! - keycha1n
Taj mahal,qutub minar isn't that all in india vote for itV 36 Comments
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.
Even out of Japan, Japanese culture is one of the most amazing and intriguing out there. The history, language, food, and people make it incredibly interesting.
Visited Japan over 15 times in my life (so far), the culture does not seize to fascinate and surprise me. The traditions are so rooted deep inside the society as if the people were born with the knowledge.
Nice place good foodV 9 Comments
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! - popsmarts
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! - keycha1n
Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world! And Florence is the true City of Love.

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. - keycha1n
Egypt's history and culture are very rich richer than bill gates
Egypt has a very amazing past!
It's the best country in the worldV 10 Comments
Their history in dance and other forms of art has always captivated my attention! - keycha1n
Soviet history is particularly interesting in my opinion. But the more obscure regions of Russia, like Kaliningrad or Tannu-Tuva, or the most interesting.
I've actually visited France, and I take French in school. The language is beautiful and it's a very romantic place! - keycha1n
Sure one of the most famous, should be in top 5.
Sure France is well known to be one of the most famous, so famous that lots of jealous like to play French bashing. More you play this game, more France strong is.
Good food, patisseries, charcuteries, cheese, good wines, beautiful landscape (mountains, sea, countryside, tropical islands, amazonian forest, pittoresque towns, beautiful cities and Paris), music, festivals, fashion,...V 2 Comments
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. - keycha1n
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

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. - keycha1n
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
It became a country again after 1000s of years...V 8 Comments
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.
I sensed no racism when I went to Iran, and I am from Canada.
Every city is so different with different culture and beauty, from desert to mountains, to ski resort to caspian sea.
Religious freedom as well, and women have more rights than any other muslim countries.
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.
The coke is great, so fresh

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
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
I strongly believe Australia is the most fascinating and interesting country/continent. In the universe
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!

As a German I usually speak negatively about my country, but when it comes to history I must admit that Germany has one of the most interesting ones. Beginning with the Holy Roman Empire (Of German Nation), over the German Confederation to Weimar Republic and Third Reich.
However in terms of culture Germany isn't that interesting in my opinion. Most things people consider as "German Culture" is actually Bavarian Culture, so there is that. - Flav
Wales is a lovely country when I visited Swansea in Wales and when I went in to town everybody was so caring and helpful.

Very underrated. Always in the shadow of Spain, but Portugal has a completely unique culture of it's own. They also have a very fascinating naval history; the sun never set on the Portuguese empire! Far before the same could be said of the British.
I think that there culture is interesting and I went there a few years ago and got too see how the pottery there was made! It was awesome.
Great country with a lot of history, it has the oldest borders in Europe and the portuguese people are very nice to foreigners.

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. - keycha1n
I call on all anthropologists in the world to come to Kenya...there is much to learn in Kenya...immense knowledge

Kingdom of wonder, the country with such difference Things to explore.

I would say that the Philippines has the best culture in the world. From superstitious beliefs to tradition, Fiestas and the people. It also has rich history. People in the Philippines has many ancestors outside the country like Chinese, Spanish, American, Japanese and etc. Philippines has an interesting history and culture.
Philippines is a melting pot of cultures form their own Native Culture & Pagan deities of the Diwatas & Bathala, to Spanish traditions, Chinese beliefs, Japanese, American & even Middle Eastern influences. The mix of cultures across the world has given birth to a unique combination that results to the Philippines & Filipino we know today. A group of happy, foreign welcoming, warm hearted people, hard working people.
Philippines has a rich history and it is really beautiful there.

Canada is a beautiful place to live a new adventure every day

Is this north or south korea
Would love to live there
Lol. So many of you thinking this is South Korea. This is North Korea! The DPRK! Lolololol so beautifulV 3 Comments
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.
Turkey is great country.
There is no match in terms of natural, cultural and architectural beauty if one thinks about this country. Unparalleled in its beauty especially in hospitality indeed.
Pakistan is one of the most exotic countries in the world, filled with over 74 spoken languages, and traditions and beliefs of some of the most ancient civilizations. A perfect example of a mix of Indo-Persian architecture and cuisines, Pakistan and its lingua franca, Urdu, are one of the most adored things ever.
Pakistan is one of the most beautiful countries in South Aisa. Being always the easiest prey to tourism, nobody in the world thinks about its beauty, culture and historical places. I hope one day corrupt leaders like Nawaz Sharif and Zardari will be washed away from Pakistan and it will find its real place in the world under the real leadership of the only true leader in the history of Pakistan, Imran Khan. Shaukat Ali Khan, Lower Dir, KPK, Pakistan.
Pakistan is the most beautiful country among all of the above mentioned countries.its peoples are loving and hospitable.we have proud on our country.may Allah makes Pakistan prosperous and may Allah reach the Pakistan at the glory of heights.By Jehan Ali from buner and Ahmad nawaz from Dak ismail khel charat Pakistan
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.
Kikikiki. it is the origin of human being and civilization. It is the only country never colonized. the warrior people and Christianity specially the Orthodox is originated from Ethiopia.
I can't believe indonesia is on 34 like they have more than 300 languages, traditions, etc like, for real if you move to different region of this country you can definitely feel the difference. maybe indonesia has not gotten enough eyes from the world, but I think this country deserves a lot of attention due to its rich culture
Indonesia is one of the most cultural country
There is no one country like indonesia.
Amazing sights, beautiful food, lots of different cultures, all very friendly, definitely worth the flight, or drive.
I've lived in new Zealand for 20 years and I love it here
Best countries ever
I LOVE the N.Z I live there and if u do u know what I mean by this... GO KIWIS!
By far the coolest country out there.
A bitch of a country
Beautiful and unique people
This should me top 10. From the late 8th century to the mid 11th century it was the Viking era. The Vikings were in Norway and all over Scandinavia. Then in the 11th centery Christianization took place. And then the population was growing fast until 1349 when the bubonic plague or also known as the Black Death hit Scandinavia. Then human population regrouped from it and Norway settled by more people.
Bengali peoples are mostly amazing for their hospitality.
Undoubtedly Beautiful culture! coming from the people's hospitality to the way they celebrate events, it's mesmerizing. The sarees and jewelries worn by the women are magnificent. It should not be in 43, it deserves a much higher ranking. Starting from its history to how beautifully they celebrate pohela boishakh, it is indeed mesmerizing!
An underestimated country! it's great and I have visited it!
Sorry there was a mistake isreal is not the name of the real country it is called palestine I hope you recorrect your mistake
