The cultural heritage on show in every European city is staggering. Among the world beating museums and galleries are St Petersburg’s Hermitage, Paris’ Louvre, London’s British Museum, Madrid’s Prado, Istanbul’s Topkapi palace, and Rome’s Vatican. In most cases the building housing these treasures are treasures themselves.
Cuisine: European cuisine has also given the world some everlasting icons. Taste the original pizza in Italy, caviar in Russia, roast beef in England, coffee in Vienna, croissants in France, sausage in Germany. Then go and have a McDonald’s if you must. . .
