Countries With the Most Interesting History
The Top Ten
Greece has a very unique history. From it's famous mythology to its fatal ancient wars, this country has it all.
In my opinion Greece should be on top of the list. The founders of the western world, and a rich, cultural and loong history, longer than Italy's. its fascinating
Much more interesting than Italy
Because why not
Interesting, but way too high up in my opinion
China and Vietnam histories are similar.
How come China below Greece, Italy and, especially USA?! China has thousand years interesting history. USA only has 300 years, plus it all about the British. Boring!
China should be #1 or #2. China has histories of thousands of years, and it so interesting.
Don't believe me? Try to search about China's histories, you're gonna get other histories out of your mind.
China below USA? You must be reaming me.
Short history, but all of that history is interesting
2: Great Britain
America's history is interesting?
What a classic oxymoron.
Actually I find history of greece,italy,china,japan,india,britian,france,mexico,iraq etc more interesting than USA.If you look closely then you'd know that these countries have thousands years interesting history.But USA has not that kind of history
Egypt is amazing...
Obviously, home of the pyramids
Hieroglyphs, Pyramids, Pharao’s, The Nile etc. This country has really great and interesting history.
Germany has one of the best histories from its struggle for unification and the Franco-Prussian war to the defeat in the world wars and the splitting of the nation between east and west
- Germanistic Tribes basically founding Europe
- Holy Roman Empire
- Third Reich
- hitting rock bottom
- and today's #1 (economy) in Europe again.
Beginning with the Holy Roman Empire (of German Nation), over the German Confederation to the Weimar Republic and Third Reich, the division into west and east and the reunion in '89... there are so many things Germany went through! World War 1 & 2 and the importance in Europe because of its central position come also to mind.
I believe the German history is one of the most interesting! Top 3 is debatable, but I think Top 10 seems worthy.
Well... WWI and WWII, nothing more to say, I guess.
Once had biggest empire in the world so should be number one. No UK, no USA...
The UK definitely has a rich history, especially England. It should be higher on the list than America because its history is a lot bigger and they were a fairly big part of it at one point
It should be higher than America
We should be higher than America because we made some of the biggest events in Ammerican history!
Because VIVE LE REVOLUTION
Russia's history is certainly not pleasant; but it is very interesting and complex
A whole lot of wars, despotic rulers, revolts and an incredible amount of improbable coincidents.
All the periods that happened in the past of Japan was so amazing! From the Sengoku period, to the Edo period, to the Meiji period. It was all interesting, especially the Sengoku period, when the Japanese had to switch to the European to win the wars!
How is Poland in the top 10 instead of Japan?
Poland has gone through a lot of fates and falls, but look, it's still on the map. Although she was always in a difficult place not to fight anyone, despite the partitions by three powers: Austria, Russia and Prussia, despite the aggression of the Third Reich and a knife stuck in the back by the Soviet Union and those about 40 years of communism, it still exists. Do you know how many people shed blood for her ?! Do you know how much honor means to Polish Officers ?! Do you know how many Poles risked their lives to save Jews ?! And yet there are so many stereotypes saying that they started the holocaust ... Learn more about this country and its history, you will see how many times Poland helped others and got nothing for it
Long history full of wars and alliances, very divereced when it comes to religion and economics.
Sad, but beautiful history
India has various gods and had many rulers and battles so India had most interesting history in the world
I believe india has vast and interesting history as of battles or gods they all have own culture
Which other country hosts a variety of cultures and religions peacefully!
Obviously it's the most interesting as it is the most broad and amazing
Home of vikings
Spain's history is the world's history
Spain HAS ONE OF THE MORE INTERESTING (AND MAYBE SAD BECAUSE OF IT'S DECLINE) HISTORIES IN THE WORL. FROM THE DISCOVERY OF AMERICA IN 1492 TO THE POLITICAL ISSUES IN THE PRESENT, LIKE THE INDEPENDENCE OF CATALONIA, Spain LEAVES NOBODY INDIFFERENT 1492 - The Christian Kingdoms of Castile and Aragon conquer the Emirate of Granada, ending nearly 800 years of Muslim rule in the south and founding modern Spain as a united state.
Christopher Columbus arrives in the Americas, heralding the conquest of much of South and Central America. Jews and later Muslims are expelled from Spain during the Inquisition.
16th-17th centuries - Spanish Empire is the predominant European power.
18th century - With the War of the Spanish Succession loses Spain its European possessions outside the Iberian Peninsula. Bourbon dynasty, originally from France, centralises the Spanish state, shutting down many regional autonomous assemblies.
1807-1814 - Napoleon's France occupies Spain
19th century - ...more
Amazingly complex with a long history of struggle for control and survival, Israel's history is for sure fascinating
Isn’t anyone going to consider the Ottoman Empire?
3. England/United Kingdom
8. United States
This should be at the top along with Peru, this was home to the aztec people which in my opinion are the most interesting people of all time along with Inca!
For a long time they were a very rich country who dominated trades
300 Years of the fichaste country in the world
It had very harsh time because of Japan China and other countries
This country is beautiful due to the jnfluence that the Persians left behind. From the art and music to even the influence on modern architecture in Tehran and Shiraz.
It has much interesting history that most people don't know about from the stone age to modern times. For example Sweden had colonies and an East indian company that combined with the Danish one traded more tea than the British. It dosen't have to be military history and much things that we use today is because of historical Swedish persons.
Not to be arrogant, but I think Swedens hstory is quite interesting, home of the vikings, plus Gustav Vasa's period, quite big history
Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula. With an estimated 94.6 million inhabitants as of 2016, it is the 15th most populous country in the world. Vietnam shares its land borders with China to the north, and Laos and Cambodia to the west. It shares its maritime borders with Thailand through the Gulf of Thailand, and the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia through the South China Sea. Its capital city is Hanoi, while its most populous city is Ho Chi Minh City. Histories of Vietnam is not any less fascinating than Greece's or China.
