Top Ten Most Interesting Countries

The Top Ten

1 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

It's actually is quite green despite the name, and it is the only nordic country with volcanoes. Icelandish is also the language most similar to the language the vikings used. This is mainly due to the fact that the people of Iceland are descendants of the norwegian people during the viking ages. Flag is a but similar to Norway's but it's cool still. Very interesting! The fact that it's the only nordic country with volcanoes speak for itself and the fact that it's still one of the safest countries in the world as whole speaks of fascination. - darthvadern

2 Norway 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.

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

3 New Zealand New Zealand

4 Niue
5 Vanuatu

The most dangerous country in the world when it comes to natural disasters, and there's tons of volcanoes there as well, as well as forests. Three biggest islands are Espiritu Santo, Malekula and Efates. There's more islands as well, one of the other ones being Ambrym. Capital is Port-Vila and is located on the third biggest island: Efates, president is Tallis Obed Moses and currency is Vatu. Such an interesting country, it was also the first country in Oceania that I actaully did study and try to learn a bit about, there's just tons of interesting things about Vanuatu! It's also located in the most interesting part of Oceania: Melanesia! - darthvadern

6 Russia

Russia is mostly only the european part, you know the culture of russia we are familiar. If you're talking about the whole country, it's the russian federation. And this is the biggest country in the world. Because it is so, the culture and history varies so much from region to region. I mean moskva is totally different from say vladivostok. There's siberia, the caucasian areas, the famous european parts, and the eastern forests, etc. It's massive. It simply could not be lower than this. - darthvadern

7 Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is definitely quite a cool country. Along with Armenia and Georgia, it's one of the few countries that is technically located in Asia, but some people classify it as a european country. It's surely an interesting country. Azerbaijan has a strong rivalry with its neighbour Armenia and it shows. Both sides have attacked each others and have exclaves in both countries and they fight a lot over it. In armenia there is a part of this country called the nakhchivan republic. There's a bit of controversy there as Armenia claims that is should belong to them and that it's an armenian place but Azerbaijan claims it's their land. One of the most interesting parts about the country has got to be the gobustan region though, in which you can literally find mud volcanoes. About half of all the world's mud volcanoes can be found here and it's so fascinating! - darthvadern

8 Turkmenistan Turkmenistan
9 Italy

A lot of people stereotype this country with pizza and pasta, and mario to an extent. But it's much more than that. This country has huge history! Rome is such a interesting and beautiful capital city and the flag is great too. Northern Italy has those gorgeous mountains of the Alps which I love, and the southern has many plains, and the capital Rome. Also, this country invented pizza and pasta, two excellent foods! - darthvadern

10 France

I really have to admit it that France has a very strong and interesting culture and history. Paris a one beautiful capital with the eiffel tower and it's one to the best laungage in the world: french, and it has a big history as well, the french revolution is quite interesting and one of the most interesting aspects of the late 1700s as it's quite big and complex. - darthvadern

The neighbour and big rival of Azerbaijan, Armenia. Remember how I talked about the nakchivan enclave that was located in Armenia but is officially a region of that country? Well in Azerbaijan there is the nagorno region, that actually isn't part of Armenia though, as Azerbaijan has control over it. Man there's surely a lot of controversy around these two countries. I think one of the most interesting aspects about Armenia has got to be its language. It's quite a unique one, and it's one of the only three languages in Europe that doesn't use the cyrillic or latin-based script. It's instead completely different, and uses the armenian alphabet and there's even a monument in Armenia about the letters. It's quite interesting - darthvadern

Best history - ElSherlock

The country with the most interesting history in my opinion. It’s just amazing. - Userguy44

16 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

The biggest country in South America as well as Latin America of course is here. This country has the biggest rain forest in all of the world, Amazonas, there's tons of different and interesting species and ethnic tribes there. Similar to the US, Brazil is also divided into states, with Acre, Amazonas, Para and Amapa being pherhaps some of the most interesting. Very fascinating. It surely deserves to be high on here. - darthvadern

As a half-swedish myself I think there's one quote that suits this country great: Europe in miniature. There's mountains in the north with tons of snow, there's forests almost all over the country and beaches and plains are to be found in the south, as well as tons of lakes, the only thing Sweden lacks is volcanoes but it's ok. The history is amazingly interesting as well in my opinion. It's interesting how Sweden once was one of the biggest countries in Europe back in the day. - darthvadern
