Top Ten Most Interesting Countries That Begin With "N"

The most interesting countries that begin with N. So with that being said, here's the list.

The Top Ten

1 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Now I've not really travelled much to countries unfortunately. The only countries I've been to is my home country, the baltic states, and..., Norway. Yes, Norway is the only country I've been travelling to outside of the baltic states and thanks to this I know a lot about this country so this will be a bit easier for me. The most mountainous country of the nordic countries, and has lots of awesome towns such as Gol, Hemsedal, Lärdal and Flåm. Their history has a lot of viking history, and you know how much I think vikings are interesting, no? Ok. Anyway, it's a very awesome country for me - darthvadern

2 Netherlands

The one country in which a third of the country is located below the sea level/surface. I think it's alone a reason why it's such an interesting country. It's impressive how they managed to make this country liveable. It is also very famous for its cheeses, windmills and tulips, a beautiful country, enough said. It also has technically two capitals, there's Amsterdam which is the more famous one, and there's the Hague where the goverment and stuff are located in. It's awesome. - darthvadern

3 New Zealand New Zealand is an island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. more.

This country is amazing - ElSherlock

New Zeeland. I can't believe I didn't have it on the most interesting countries in Oceania list. Just how did I miss it? It's miles more interesting than Vanuatu or Australia. It's godlike. Not only one of the safest countries on earth, but their culture, and history. It's just amazing. You see, the one thing that really makes New Zealand such an interesting place, is without a doubt the maori people. It's a polynesian ethnic people group who are the indigenous people of New Zealand, they are very known for their tatoos, as they are known to have tatoos on their whole body, yeah you know those. So interesting. Just this has to be first on the list. The maori people are kinda what inspired the character "Maui" in the disney movie Moana from 2016, I mean even his name is the same without an "R" in it. Just this is easly the first pick on here. - darthvadern

4 Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia. more.

Culture, traditions, nature - Metal_Treasure

A landlocked country on the indian sub-continent, with the capital called Katmandu, and the country itself is known for a few things. For one, the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, and it was kinda like the birthplace of buddism, as the first buddha, Siddharta Gautama was born here (even though the part where he was born technically belonged to India back in the day but eh it still kinda counts). So two things that you should know about Nepal is that Mount Everst is here, and it's kinda the birthplace of buddhism. - darthvadern

5 Nauru Nauru, officially the Republic of Nauru and formerly known as Pleasant Island, is an island country in Micronesia in the Central Pacific. It's the third smallest country in the world and the least visited country in the world as well.

The third smallest country in the world both in terms of size and population and the least visited country in the world surely deserves to be high on the list! Because almost no one knows anything about this country, it's twice as interesting as it otherwise kinda would've been. The entire country consists of one island below the equator (hint: the flag) in the middle of Oceania located in Micronesia technically but the natives are a mix between micronesian and polynesian which makes it surely a fascinating country with very interesting cultures. It's also the only country in the world along with Switzerland that doesn't have an official capital city. The city here in which the government is located is Yaren though. This country also used to be very rich, and I mean it once used to be the richest country in the world because of the massive amount of phosphate in the island but it won't last forever and Nauru has grown poorer as time has gone by. Still, a very interesting country. - darthvadern

I have a list about this country. It's really quite fascinating. - PositronWildhawk

6 Nigeria Nigeria, an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall more.

Africa's most popoulus country easly makes it the top ten. With almost two hundred millions of people, Nigeria has a lot of different cultures and ethnic groups and honestly that kinda makes it by default super interesting. I mean almost two hundred million people! That's a lot of you ask me. The capital city Abuja itself has about eight hundred thousand people, and the largest city, Lagos has about eight million people! Combine that with the rest of the population and you have two hundred million peopleI Huge. It's sad it's such a dangerous country though. - darthvadern

7 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Of the two koreas, South Korea is easly the best one to live in and all that. However, if you want to study about one of the koreas, which one's the most interesting, North Korea takes the W. South Korea is interesting too but it doesn't have the same creepy athmosphere and interesting looks as it's northern neighbour. This is one of the most isolated countries, in earth, let alone strictest dictatorships out there, along with countries like Equatorial Guinea or Eritrea. It's quite interesting to say the least, I mean it's so isolated that the outside barely knows much about this country outside of it being a strict dictatorship. It's very interesting. - darthvadern

8 Nicaragua Nicaragua, officially the Republic of Nicaragua, is the largest country in the Central American isthmus.

Nicaragua is the biggest country in central america (outside of Mexico of course) located kinda in the lower center of the continent, and this is mostly known for their indigenous people who were called the nicarao, who lived at the nicaragua lake in the southwest of the country, and these are the things this country is mainly known for, and it's very interesting in my opinion. And the nicarao aren't the only ethnic group in Nicaragua. After all it's the biggest country in Central America and they have a lot of interesting sights in my honest opinion really. - darthvadern

9 North Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful more.

Yes, remember, this country has officially switched name from "Macedonia" to "North Macedonia", mainly to avoid controversy with Greece as Macedonia was a historical region of Greece and they get mad when other people use their name. Both of those are very interesting countries. North Macedonia is the southernmost state of the former yugoslavian countries, with the capital city called Skopje. North Macedonia is mostly known for the ohrid lake at the border with Albania, which is the deepest lake in all of Europe and that's call. It's almost three hundred meters deep, just a few hundred meters higher than the seafloor of the baltic sea. That's cool. Otherwise it has a very slavic culture as well that attracts me a lot. Very interesting indeed. - darthvadern

I’m not from Greece so I’m not sure but are you sure you can’t let them have the name because I don’t want to say former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia or north Macedonia every time I refer to this country - RawIsgore

10 Niger Niger, officially the Republic of Niger, is a landlocked country in Western Africa, named after the Niger River.

The second largest landlocked african country, right behind Chad. Don't confuse this country with the southern neighbour Nigeria though. They are completely different for the most part both in terms of settings and ethnicity. This is a more desert and berber country, as opposed to Nigeria which is extremly diverse and more mountainous and forested rather. Oh and Niger was a french colony while Nigeria was a brittish colony. Niger has quite interesting berber, or more specifically, tuareg culture which I think is quite interesting to say the least. - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Namibia Namibia, officially the Republic of Namibia, is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean.
