About the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is the largest island nation in Europe and a federation of the territories of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
England is not only the largest and most densely populated part of the United Kingdom, but also the most visited by tourists. The capital of England is the famous London, which is also at the same time the main city of the whole United Kingdom. This world metropolis has some 3.3 million inhabitants in the inner districts of Inner London, making it the most populous city in the European Union.
To this day, the United Kingdom is a monarchy, but the country is effectively governed by government and parliament.

From the past

The history of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland began with the 'Act of Union' in 1800, in which equality of Catholics was to be guaranteed. However, by a series of oppositions, this was achieved only by a campaign cited in 1829, which finally led to the abolition of discriminatory laws for Catholics.
The individual countries, of course, have already existed for thousands of years. The island itself originated already around 7000 BC, when the sea level during the last ice melting enormously increased.
The British Empire included around two-fifths of its surface at its best time. After independence from Pakistan and India in 1947, however, the giant empire dissolved within a few years. Some of the former colonies decided to remain with the United Kingdom, such as the Falkland Islands, Bermuda or Gibraltar.

The United Kingdom today

Since the United Kingdom is a federation of very different countries, this is the right place for every visitor.
In the world metropolis of England you can enjoy nice shopping, or visit some of the many wonderful sites, such as the 'Big Ben' or the 'Westminster Abbey'. Or take a ride in the famous symbol, the red double decker buses, and go on a city tour. Also the nightlife is known and popular worldwide. In this lively city, it is never boring.
If you like it rather quiet and natural, you will find the right in Ireland or Scotland. Walk through endless green landscapes, enjoy the fresh air and then return to the famous pubs to enjoy a good beer.
