Europe | Destination World

MALE NARRATOR: This is Earth. Maybe you’ve heard of it? I sure hope so,
because you live on one of its seven
continents! (upbeat music) If you love history,
then buckle up for a trip to Europe,
the birthplace of some of the most famous
civilizations ever! ♪ ♪ Europe is the second smallest
of the continents, but for its size
in population, it takes third place,
right behind Asia and Africa. Europeans live in some
incredible places, from the largest island
in the world, Greenland, to the smallest nation
in the world, Vatican City. About 10% of the world’s
population live in Europe, from the subtropical
beaches of Monaco to the polar tundras
of Norway. ♪ ♪ You have to brave the cold to see some of Europe’s
natural wonders! Iceland has one of the best
views of nature’s light show, the Northern Lights. ♪ ♪ If you are not
afraid of heights, head to the border
of Italy and Switzerland. You can climb one of the most
famous mountains in the world, the Matterhorn. It looks like
a giant tooth, right? Some of Europe’s wonders
were built by hand. You may have heard of a few, like the Eiffel Tower that soars above the city
of Paris, France. It was once the tallest
building in the world and has almost 7 million
visitors every year. Or check out the Colosseum
in Rome, Italy. It’s the biggest amphitheater
in the world, made of stone and concrete and built almost 2,000
years ago! ♪ ♪ In the 6th century
in Athens, Greece, amazing artistic theaters
and temples were built. Ancient Greeks loved
watching plays and hosting special events
to honor their gods. The celebrations held
in the city of Olympia inspired the world’s
Olympic Games. Europe is filled
with more than just amazing places and people. It’s also home
to a few amazing animals. In the western forests
of Europe, you may hear
grey wolves howling, brown bears hunting, or golden eagles
soaring overhead! In eastern Europe, you may see the rare Euroasian Lynx and the European bison. On the northern edges
of Europe, you may even see
a polar bear! Europe is packed,
with over 742 million people in 47 countries,
enjoying beautiful views of mountains and valleys,
coastlines and skylines. Europe is full
of incredible sights and fascinating cultures. No wonder the most visited
continent on Earth is– you guessed it–
Europe! Captioned by Captionmax
