Interesting places and tourist attractions to visit in Europe

First I'd like to share some interesting facts about Europe. Did you know that although the EU represents only 7% of the world’s population, it accounts for a fifth of global imports and exports? Almost three quarters of the EU workforce is employed in the services industry. And Approximately 90% of businesses and 50% of households in the EU have internet access.

Do you have plans of going to Europe? Well, I can show you some interesting places and tourist attractions that you might want to visit in Europe. In London, one of the most famous tourist attractions is the London Eye, also called Millenium Wheel. The London eye was ready for the first flight at the millenium change 1999/2000. Since then hundreds of visitors board for a flight each day which takes about 20 minutes. In Paris, one of the world’s most famous museums became even better known recently, when it appeared in a hugely successful book and movie. The opening scene of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code is set in one of the galleries of the Louvre and offers a glimpse of some world famous paintings. Fortunately, in real life, the paintings weren’t vandalized and can still be enjoyed today. And in Berlin, the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin's only remaining city gate, is the true symbol of the city. Because it was situated in the no man's land just behind the wall, it also became symbolic of the division of the city. After the Fall of the Wall, the Gate was reopened on December 22, 1989.

Well, there is still so much more about Europe. But you have to explore it yourself when you get there :) By the way, if you are looking for great but cheap hotels there are lots of it which you can find in London Hotels, Paris Hotels, and Berlin Hotels. Enjoy!
