    I've seen a report about a Baltic city in Christmas (Riga or Tallin, I don't remember), and indeed, it looks very beautiful.

    This is a very difficult choice.

    Europe as a whole is beautiful and it is very difficult to isolate an area that is more points, and question is which the criteria take into account.

    Maciamo has made a good share of countries.

    Only for Greece probably can be changed because this country belongs to the Balkans and should not be together with Turkey.

    But these divisions make it difficult to vote because someone could be in one or more countries but not in all.

    For example, I was in Belgium but not in Holland etc. and I can not vote for the Benelux but I would voted for Belgium, and such examples has more.

    You know how to choose quality.

    I think Europe is wonderful to travel and meet her.

    I use to go mostly to Southern Germany/Austria becouse I study German and am interested in their culture.

    I also like to visit Rome and other central Italian places and I have the advantage that I live there so I just need some hours to explore the whole area.

    I went to Greece once and I'd like to go there again and I have seen a documentary about Turkey (Istanbul) and it seems an interesting place worthing a visit, so it's on my list, but from the area where I live it is not easy for me to go there, indeed I've been more often to France than to Greece (3 times and probably this summer I'll go there for the 4th vs just 1 time)

    yes, i recommend you, and the other to spend a summer vacation there, the waters are crystal clear like you find in the caribbeans.
    and the interior is wild and not massificated for turism, also most of the coasts.
    the people preserve their traditions with its own cusine, dances and dialect.

    My favorite country in Europe is ... I love Italy, but I felt something special in France, Paris and french riviera are amazing.

    Generally I prefer the South, perhaps by the light. For example, I was in Stockholm in April, still with snow. It is a beautiful city, but not convinced me. It lacks the artistic touch of the Mediterranean cities. Maybe summer is best time to visit Scandinavia.

    I love the gays, they tend to be more open-minded than heterosexuals, the gay flag has the colors of all the continents, and therefore all races, but here is the exception: Carlitos, gay and racist. What a pity.

    Greece, Cyprus & Turkey would be my favorite. People are just slighty different to northern europe. The culturual sites go back thousands of years and there are plenty of them and the weather is great of course!

    Tough call, but I voted for Ireland, I lived there for a long time and I've never seen the same place in the same light twice, it's just part of the life there, rain, storms, sunshine... all within 20 minutes time! The south of France was my second choice, it's just about everything, the little villages and the caf├ęs, church bells ringing, farms scattered all over the horizon, food and wine you just can't compare to anywhere else. Third choice Poland, it's just beautiful, I hope it will not change too quickly.
