Τhe top 10 European countries for nature lovers
The tendency of people to return to nature is a fact, especially in recent years. The need to come in direct contact with the natural environment seems more urgent than ever at this time, since due to the pandemic we have been deprived for a long time of nature walks, excursions and our acquaintance with different parts of the world.
Greece is undoubtedly one of the most popular destinations in the world, with monuments, sights and natural beauty that rank it at the top. However, of course there are other parts of the world that are worth visiting, especially when it comes to natural attractions, natural monuments and landscapes that we all want to see up close.
According to a British survey, during which almost 80,000 nationally protected land areas in Europe were analyzed, the European country with the highest percentage of protected land is Luxembourg. This is a European country where the percentage of protected land is 75.9%. An important element is the fact that Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe (2,586 km2) and hosts only 134 green areas. However, due to the fact that these areas cover 1,963 km2, they gave this country the first place.

Who among us would not like to take a trip to one of these parts of the world, becoming one with the natural environment? Contact with nature is a way of internal reconstruction and general rejuvenation, which is why people often, when experiencing periods of intense stress and anxiety, seek a short escape to nature so that they can regain their balance. The natural environment, in addition to all the beneficial benefits it has for our soul and body, also needs our own care and protection. We must not forget, after all, that the more we need the natural environment, the more we need it. So it is good to take care of it, to love it and to respect it and the easiest way to achieve this is to explore all its beauties.
