Top Ten Most Interesting Countries

The Top Ten Most Interesting Countries

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.

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 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

3 New Zealand

Not only one of the safest countries on earth, but their culture, and history is the most interesting in all of Polynesia, let alone Oceania. 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, who found the islands around year 1300 making it one of the most recent countries where people have first set foot on, they are very known for their tatoos, as they are known to have tatoos on their whole body, yeah you know those, very cool. 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. So yeah this is top ten worthy. - darthvadern

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 is a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west.
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

Peru is mostly known for being where the Inca people originally came from. The capital of ...read more.

Peru has in my opinion, among the most interesting history and cultures in the world. It's just overall 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 should be at the top in my opinion. - darthvadern

12 Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Of Africa this is the number #1 most interesting country. As one of the oldest countries in the arab world, let alone the entire world with its extremely iconic and interesting history with the nile, deserts and pyraminds, Egypt tops the list easly. It's like the hub of the arab world and the most famous one as well, and it surely is the most interesting. It's pretty much impossible to not have heard anything about Egypt, as its history is massive and has been used for numerous movies. - darthvadern

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

Iran is pretty much the hub for persian culture, and the location in which the persian empire started, and while I do not know much about the persian empire, I do think it's quite interesting. Yeah, but there's not only history. The persians themselves have a very interesting culture and they speak Farsi, an indo-european language and it's awesome. One of the best languages. So overall, very interesting culture and history, and I really want to study more about this country because of how interesting it is in my opinion. That's just the tip of the iceberg. This is awesome - darthvadern

16 Armenia Armenia is a country in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located in Western Asia on the Armenian Highlands, it is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, the de facto independent Republic of Artsakh and Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran and Azerbaijan's exclave of Nakhchivan to the ...read more.

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

17 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico is one of the top choices in my opinion for this list actually. Mexico has such an interesting culture and great foods like tacos, and the so interesting aztec people were from Mexico, who are in my opinion among the most interesting people who ever lived on the planet tied with the inca. History, culture, languages, everything about Mexico is just so awesome to study about. Their flag has quite a cool meaning as well as it has to do with the aztec. - darthvadern

18 Uzbekistan Uzbekistan is a landlocked country. It is one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world, a country completely surrounded by landlocked countries in Central Asia. ...read more.

In Asia, Uzbekistan takes the trophy for being the most interesting country for me. for a number of reasons, but I think something everyone here can agree is that the history is very interesting and fascinating. During a long, long time ago, there was the silk road, which was an ancient network of trade routes, which connected the west and east, and the three cities Samarkand, Chiva and Bukhara who played a big role during the ancients are all located in Uzbekistan, and it's all juts so fascinating! This is also one of the three countries where the Aral sea is located. The Kyzylkum desert is also located here, a big desert. So this country is at the top for me. - darthvadern

19 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.
20 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.
21 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.
22 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

23 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Pherhaps the most famous country of them all in the world. One of the most populated countries in the entire world and also one of the biggest countries out there as well. Most known movies and songs are created in the US, most celebrities are from the US and most toptenners on here, are american. It's huge. I could go on and on about how big it is, and how interesting it is as well. Originally inhabited by native americans, such as the navajo and lakota, the United States later became a colony of the United Kingdom, and they were the very first country in the world to gain independence from their motherland actually. Originally they consisted of only thirteen states but as time went by tons of new things happened such new states joining in like Missouri, Colorado, Oregon, New Mexico, Califonia, Hawaii, etc and a lot of other things. - darthvadern

24 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.
25 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.
26 Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Fun fact, so Ukraine's and Sweden's flags are super similar to each other, I mean the colours are exactly the same, funny enough, they have relatively the same size, biggest difference is that Sweden is known as one of the safest european countries and Ukraine the opposite. Anyways, Ukraine is a slavic country located in eastern Europe with loads of interesting cultures and ethnic groups. Their history, is very cool and interesting and I love their slavic culture. Ukraine takes a spot here definitely - darthvadern

27 Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.
28 Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

Most interesting country when it comes to Europe in my opinion. It's one of the flattest countries in Europe and it has such a big history. It actually used to be one of the biggest countries in Europe and used to be a kingdom, and Austria used to be part of it. I wish it was more known. Compared to Italy this gets no attention, the reason I just compared Italy to Hungary is because their flags are almost the same except Italy's flag is verticval and Hungary's flag isn't. I prefer the hungarian flag. This country also has such an interesting culture! They share the same favourite vegetable as mine, the awesome paprika used all over hungarian cuisine, even in cake. This is a top choice - darthvadern

29 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

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

It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

I find the United Kingdom to be quite an interesting country overall. People stereotype the UK with scones and tea which are two things I love and I overall find UK culture to be very interesting. Their history is quite big and cool to study about and the UK actually consists of four countries. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Island. Personally I find Scotland to be the most interesting because of how different it is overall to the rest of the country. I also have brittish ancestry so there's that - darthvadern
