France remains, as always, one of the most popular travel destinations, not only in Europe but in the world, but there are numerous other small pearls just waiting for you to discover and explore, such as Montenegro or Moldova. Sometimes the most amazing travel experiences are those that are just around the corner! They are ideal, too, for just a short trip or city break. So take a look at what´s on offer and prepare to be surprised!

50 different countries to explore in Europe

Many are surprised to discover that there are actually no less than 50 independent countries geographically, but only 28 who are members of the EU. A number of countries such as Russia are geographically a part of Eastern Europe. The Eastern European border runs along the Ural Mountains. There are also countries such as Greenland which is not European in a geographic sense, but which belongs to Denmark and thus has a strong geo-political connection to Europe.
