Europe Day

What is Europe Day?

On 9 May 1950 the first move was made towards the creation of what is now known as the European Union. That's why we celebrate Europe Day on that day. At the moment there are 27 countries in the European Union. If you want to know about them, click here.

Which country would you like to visit? Explain why. The most original answer gets a prize
I would like to visit the United Kingdom, because I want to improve my English and know British way of life personally.


  1. I want to visit Belgium! In Brussels, there's a very important building called Atomium, it's amazing. It's a huge representation of a atom...
    In Belgium, there is a lot of chocolate... I love chocolate!! There I can practice French, because I speak English more or less but I don't speak French very well... Belgium is beautiful, there are many rivers and the cities are wonderful... They are very old!
    I want to visit Belgium to know how do the Belgians live: their food, their culture...

    If you have money, and you like wonderful countries you must go to Belgium, one of the most beautiful countries in Europe, a paradise for you... :-)

  23. I would like to visit Italy, concretely Venice. I like Venice very much because in its streets there are seawater, and the people there moves in boats. It's very romantic... There, the only thing that you think is love... (L) If you have got girlfriend / boyfriend, there you are going to have fun! But Venice is not the only one wonderful city in Italy. Verona and Florence are wonderful cities, too. Verona was the city in where Romeo and Julier were... It's so romantic. :-D And Florencia was the city where Leonardo Da Vinci painted The Mona Lisa. And there are many monuments such as cathedrals and churchs.

    I love Italy, I love Belgium... I love European Union!

  24. Well, I have read all your answers and I like them all. It's really hard to choose only one. I think the most original ones are Pepe's and Alberto's but I like the two Antonio's, Mª Carmen's, Elena's comments as well. What is clear is that the countries you would like to visit are France, Italy and the United Kingdom. They are a good choice, although I would like to recommend Holland, Germany and Ireland too.
    You will have to wait until tomorrow to find out who gets the prize (or perhaps, the prizes)
