The Top Ten

1 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to more.

Of course France is famously known for its gastronomy, but that is just the visible part of the iceberg. With more than 84 millions of tourists in 2015 is the most visited country in the world with USA and Spain. And it is also ranked number 6 in terms of GDP. Is in the top 5 or healthcare and the top 1 in Europe for its number of diverse cultures and origins.

Amazing country, simply beautiful, very open minded. Don't listen to the stereotypes, all my encounters with French people were always really pleasant, I mean you'll have the equivalent of rednecks everywhere, France too, but I've never met any.

France is the most visiting country on earth, a lot of variety for landscape, the best food ever and the French way of life is very famous.

2 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. more.

A lot of people call it England but the country is actually called United Kingdom. - cosmo

England contributed more to the world than any other county. Don't know why it is listed as United Kingdom.

Britain is the most famous country in the world forget Europe.

From the most inventions of any nation, to producing world class art, literature, music, film, education, etc, etc, the UK has given so much.

The UK also embraces change more than almost any country - look at fashion trends started here first - the mini skirt etc...

An open, friendly, welcoming people of creativity, hard work and with that British sense of fair play.

Yes, it is not perfect - but where is? - the British are self depracating too - not often found elsewhere.

In balance, for it's size it punches well above its weight and offers almost everything.

A fine place with fine people.

3 Italy

Italy and France are the most famous.

It's the 2nd most corrupted European country (just behind Bulgaria) - See Transparency International factsheets.

Italy has had a huge impact on the history of Europe, no wonder it's so famous.

Italy has had a huge contribution to the world! Everyone knows Italy

4 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe.

5 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

Of course Germany should be higher than Italy, no doubt about the fact that the modern Germany beats bay far Southern European country like Italy.
Germany is in top 3.

6 Spain

I've traveled all around the world doing surveys about Spain and I can confrim that nearly everyone knows Spain and information about it.

Spain is the most famous, everybody know Cristóbal Colón (C. Colombus) who has discovered America (if we don't count American Indians and Vikings first).

7 Greece

Worldwide known for the philosophers, mathematicians, thinkers etc born in this country. Home to democracy and other values. Cornerstone to medicine. Cradle of civilization but also known and respected for its long and ancient history. Additionally it is situated in a very strategic point joining Europe, Asia and Africa commonly referred to as the "three continents' crossroads" - a reason for strong controversy among countries as USA, Russia and China over their internal influence and deriving/respective rights.

Greece has the best Mediterranean food, and the monasteries plus beaches are beautiful.

The most beautiful country in the world without a doubt!

Where it all began for the Europeans!
