France is the country I would like to visit by Mikaella

There are many places around the world I would like to visit but the country I really want to go to, is France. This is some information about the country and the sites I would like to visit.

France is a very big country with a population of about 61 685 000. The country covers 544 000 km² and extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. It is bordered by Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Monaco, Spain and Andorra. The biggest cities are: Paris, the capital of France, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Nice, Strasbourg, Montpellier, Bordeaux, Lille and Grenoble.

France is one of the most developed countries and enjoys a high standard of living. The country has a high public education level and has also one of the world's highest life expectancy. The official language is French. France has been a member state of the European Union since 1957.

The flag of France has three colours:
blue which symbolises the liberty
white which symbolises the equality
red which symbolises the brotherhood

The capital:
Paris is the capital of France and one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and it influences politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and arts. Paris is also a very popular holiday destination for millions of tourists who visit it every year.

The climate in France is different in each area. There are warm, dry summers and mild winters.

France produces the best wine in the world which makes it very famous. France is also well-known for the various types of cheese it makes. People prefer French cheese for its special taste. We can say that French crepes and croissants are delicious, too.

French goods have very high quality. France started producing perfumes many years ago and that's why its perfumes are very popular. Also France is very popular for its cars (Citroen, Peugeot etc).
