Europe is a continent that has absorbed as much through its borders as it has pushed through others. Without it, the world’s history books would be far lighter; there would be no Greece to establish modern civilisation, no Rome to divide and conquer, and no Britain to build an empire. But neither would there be the collision between antiquity and innovation that makes this one of the world’s greatest cultural hot pots.
The continent’s capital cities are where you’ll discover exactly what this means, with tourists gravitating towards the galleries of Paris, the museums of London, and the ruins of Athens accordingly. But stray from the worn path and you’ll discover much more, from the extensive intricacy of Scandinavia’s fjords to the unparalleled beauty of the Mediterranean’s coastlines, from the historic towns of central Europe to the blurring of East and West in countries like Russia and Turkey.
Europe doesn’t offer the same appeal to the frugal traveller as other regions but it is one of the easiest and safest continents to navigate, and as a result it has replaced the influence it once held over the rest of the world by force, with an irresistible magnetism that attracts tourists by choice.
