    Scotland is my favorite European country because it felt like home.  I would like to visit Italy and France too as I think those would be close seconds to Scotland.

    I loved France, Bruges, Switzerland , Italy ,Germany & find it hard to choose a favourite however I did want to live a year in france while there !

    It was beautiful countryside & my first time in a place with another language yet so close to Britain . I want to go back & visit Spain & greece as well
    Wales where I was born , Scotland is beautiful + english countryside & castles

    Tough question !

    Hands down Estonia - Tallinn in particular. It is a strange and beautiful medium between eastern block life and the rest of Europe. Great food, beer, history - and a cool (but almost impossible) language to learn. But if you speak English or Russian you should be fine there!

    It is hard to say which, but language must come into the issue: speaking the language will enable one to benefit immensely more than if one does not speak it.

    I think some of the smaller countries of Europe are often overlooked. Luxembourg has immense variety and lots of historic sites. Monaco (and I didn't go to the casino) has a lot to see, and Monaco Town on the Rock is historically very interesting.

    Belgium is a study in contrast: the French-speaking south and Dutch-speaking north, and bilingual Brussels (an absorbing, fascinating city, in the centre). I lived in Belgium for a while and it helps to be able to speak both French and some Dutch.

    Sweden a much larger country, though with a proportionately small population, has an invigorating northern 'freshness' to it; it's hard to desribe. I visited Gothenburg and was glad that I had learned some Swedish over the years.

    So if I have a favourite? it's hard to say, but the way of going about choosing a 'favourite' European country should involve getting to grips with the local language(s) because in this way one benefits so much more in getting to know a country.
