If you're thinking of heading to Europe on a family adventure this summer, this at-a-glance guide includes some of the top reasons to visit five different European countries. Plus there's a fun fact about each you can use to wow the kids when telling them about your next holiday!
|Country||Why visit?||Fun fact|
|Croatia||A coastline great for exploring from aboard our traditional boat 'Oldtimer'; lakes, mountains and rivers provide beautiful scenery to explore - a trip here can be as active or relaxing as you want!||Dalmatian dogs (as seen in the movie 101 Dalmatians) were named after the Dalmatia region of Croatia.|
|Greece||A plethora of islands off the coast to explore; ancient ruins to discover; picture-postcard villages to visit and swimming in pools and in the sea to enjoy.||Greece is the southernmost country in Europe and also has the longest coastline.|
|Latvia||White-water rafting and kayaking; high-ropes and obstacle courses in a 'Tarzan park'; seaside relaxation.||Though a mostly Christian country, Latvia still celebrates certain pagan traditions from its olden days.|
|Malta||Lots of swimming opportunities; an exciting jeep safari on the island of Gozo; the chance to visit an island nature reserve.||People from Malta are known as Maltese, not Maltesers as some may think!|
|Italy||The food is delicious; the landscapes are perfect for active exploration; the history is rich and will bring school lessons to life.||The word 'pasta' comes from the Italian word for paste, meaning a combination of flour and water.|
