Europe ... the "old world." Home to both the largest (Russia) and smallest (Vatican
City) counties in the world, Europe comprises close to 50 counties, including the
27 member countries of the EU. Though it has arguably dominated the world stage in
so many ways, Europe accounts for only about 6.8% of the Earth's landmass, making
it the second smallest continent (Australia is the smallest). And yet it has so much
to offer! From Ancient Greece to the formation (and possible decline?) of the European
Union, students can study a vast sweep of human history.
