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

The Top Ten

1 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately ...read more.

I highly recommend visiting Poland. It's an understated country, but it's full of fascinating history. - PositronWildhawk

I'm surprised someone actually appreciates my homeland. (And yes, I am Polish.) - X_the_Unown

Poland's a cool one. A slavic country south of the baltic sea, Poland's the only slavic country to border the baltic sea in the first place (along With Russia but they don't have big coastlines with it at all) and their slavic culture is visible. They speak the polish language, which is a language on the western branch of the slavic languages, and their history is quite big. At one point, they were the biggest country in Europe when they were united with Lithuania. Poland was still known after that but Lithuania unfortunately got forgotten. But yeah Poland's very interesting. - darthvadern

Aw yeah... That ma home land. Polska! Woh!
(Yes... I am Polish... bet none knew that) - X_the_Unown

2 Peru Peru Peru, officially the Republic of Peru, is a country in western South America, bordered by Colombia and Ecuador to north, Brazil to east, Bolivia to south-east, Chile to south and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Peru is mostly known for being where the Inca people originally came from. The capital of ...read more.

Aah, yes. The beauty of the amazing Peru. Peru has among the most interesting history and cultures in the world, in my opinion. It's just one of the most interesting countries in the world even in my opinion, and it's for a lot of reasons. You see, it was from Peru is where the so interesting mountain people known as the Inca came from who are so interesting. Machu Pichu is such a gorgeous and interesting place. I mean the inca people are one of the main reasons Peru really takes the top spot on this list. But that's just the mountain parts. The further east you go, you come to the jungles and they have a lot of interesting stuff going on as well. I mean it's amazing. Peru easly takes the top spot. - darthvadern

3 Portugal Portugal Portugal (est.1152), officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located mostly on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain. Its territory also includes ...read more.

I mean now it's a super small country in Europe. Throughout history though, Portugal was one of the all-time biggest countries. It's crazy how such a small country used to have some of the best navigators which made them able to conolize countries way bigger than Portugal itself such as Brazil, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Angola, etc. There's also Sao Tome & Principe and East Timor, but they aren't bigger than Portugal. Portugal has influenced all of these lusophone countries in one way of another and it's amazing. - darthvadern

My visit to Portugal shone light on European history from all sorts of periods. And some weird as hell contemporary art. And cinnamon custard tarts which you absolutely must try. - PositronWildhawk

4 Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea Papua New Guinea, officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia.

If I wanna go there that would be for the nature and the birds, esp. the family of Birds-Of-Paradise, some of the most beautiful and colorful birds ever. They have one on their flag. - Metal_Treasure

It's the biggest country in Melanesia as whole and the only one that has a border with Asia (specifically with Indonesia) and it surely has a lot of interesting cultures and history. I don't know too much about it but it seems interesting considering the culture is melanesian. After all, melanesia as whole is super interesting. - darthvadern

5 Paraguay Paraguay Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay, is a landlocked country in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest.

Paraguay is one of those very mysterious and interesting countries, something interesting about Paraguay is that the nort-west part AKA 60% of the land is pretty much completely uninhabited which is a huge and open plain, it doesn't have too many tourists but it's such an interesting country. The indigenous people known as the guarani are quite interesting as well and speak the guarani laungage. More people speak guarani than spanish here so you gotta learn some of that language if you go here. It's so fascinating in my opinion. - darthvadern

6 Puerto Rico Puerto Rico

Now yes, Puerto Rico isn't really that much of a country. It's part of the united states, but technically, it's still a country. Just not a sovereign state. A caribbean island located east of the dominican republic and west of the smaller antilles. It's the smallest country in the greater antilles. Their flag greatly resembles Cuba's flag except the colours are reversed to make it look more american, as Cuba is a socialist state and has more socialistic meanings in their flag. Unfortunately I don't know too much about Puerto Rico, but it seems very interesting indeed - darthvadern

Really should be a state if not a independent country basically Puerto Rico is a state In almost every way but name - RawIsgore

Puerto Rico began with the settlement of the archipelago of Puerto Rico by the Ortoiroid people between 3,000 and 2,000 because. Other tribes, such as the Saladoid and Arawak Native Puerto Ricans, populated the island between 430 because and 1000 AD. At the time of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1493, the dominant indigenous culture was that of the Taínos. The Taíno people's numbers went dangerously low during the later half of the 16th century because of new infectious diseases carried by Europeans, exploitation by Spanish settlers, and warfare.

Located in the northeastern Caribbean, Puerto Rico formed a key part of the Spanish Empire from the early years of the exploration, conquest and colonization of the New World. The island was a major military post during many wars between Spain and other European powers for control of the region in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The smallest of the Greater Antilles, Puerto Rico was a stepping-stone in the ...more - PrincipeAzul

7 Panama Panama Panama, officially called the Republic of Panama, is a country in Central America situated between North and South America.

The southern-most state in Central America and stated to be one of the safer countries there, Panama is mostly known for the panama canal, which splits the country in half kinda. I don't know too much about Panama unfortunately, but, I think it's a generally cool and interesting country. Lots of rainforests here and there can be found and it's generally quite cool in my opinion. So Panama takes a high spot on this list. - darthvadern

8 Philippines Philippines The Philippines was established in March 16, 1521 and named in honor of a Spanish King whose name is King Philip of Spain II. It is located at Asia, specifically at Southeast Asia. The capital is Manila. 89% of the people there currently are native, while 11% of people there are foreigners.

Generally southeast asia is a bit uninteresting for me. It just feels too hot and uninteresting for the most part. Still, every country is interesting in one or another and Philippines certainly has its ups and downs like every other country in the world in terms of interestment. It's one of the biggest archipelagos in the world, located off the coast of Vietname and is definitely one of the most complex countries in the world. It has so many different islands and the culture varies so much from island to island and it's quite fascinating in my opinion so yeah Philippines is still a generally interesting country. - darthvadern

It’s sad to see the Philippines history the country got tossed around by Spain,USA, and Japan but its good to see the Philippines still thriving as a country - RawIsgore

9 Palau Palau

An archipelago in Micronesia, in the pacific ocean just north of Indonesia and just a few hundred meters of the coasts of the philippines. Yeah the micronesian countries location are rather in the mid-northern parts of the pacific, unlike Polynesia and Melanesia who are located in the south pacific. Generally micronesia is less interesting for me than the other two sub-regions, but every country's interesting in a way or another. It's one of the youngest sovereign states in the world as they used to be part of the federated states of micronesia for a long time. Palau used to be heavily populated by the philippinese as well but now it's a bit more diverse, offering more cultures and stuff and I think it's a cool country. - darthvadern

10 Pakistan Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan. You know there are seven "'-stan" countries and all of them are either turkic (Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan) or persian (Tajikistan and Afghanistan (although Afghanistan is heavily pashtun as well)). However what is Pakistan? The "-stan" country located off the eastern corner of those countries bordering India to the east? Well, in the simpliest way I can put it, it's mostly punjabi and pashtun, who are indo-european people who also speak the indo-european language known as Urdu. It's quite interesting in my opinion. - darthvadern
