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.

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.

3 Italy

Italy and France are the most famous.

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

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!
