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.

2 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's current prime minister is ...read more.

In my opinion, the UK is pretty famous, and I am from there. I'd say it's mostly famous because it's relatively safe and the landscape is beautiful and it is currently OK in money. The weather and temperature are pretty decent in some seasons but in others it can be slightly cold but mostly in my opinion I think that it is relatively decent and famous.

Invented Everything, Huge Empire and dominant language.

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.

Whoever said the world is ridiculous. Hello? America, Spain, France, Russia, there are many popular places!

6 Greece Greece Greece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

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.

The most beautiful country in the world without a doubt!

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