The Most Fascinating Natural Environment in Europe
The most fascinating natural environment in Europe encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally, meaning in this case not artificial. The term is most often applied to the Earth or some parts of Earth. This environment encompasses the interaction of all living species, climate, weather and natural resources that affect human survival and economic activity. The concept of the natural environment can be distinguished as components:
Complete ecological units that function as natural systems without massive civilized human intervention, including all vegetation, microorganisms, soil, rocks, atmosphere, and natural phenomena that occur within their boundaries and their nature.
Universal natural resources and physical phenomena that lack clear-cut boundaries, such as air, water, and climate, as well as energy, radiation, electric charge, and magnetism, not originating from civilized human actions.
1. PARIS (FRANCE)
Adapting to the environment in Paris has a negative effect on the pollution though. Water pollution is a big problem in France at the moment because Paris is becoming more of an industrial city, and is acquiring industrial contaminants. Farming has caused agricultural nitrates, and from a big city like Paris, there is a lot of waste. 18.7 million tons of waste per year to be exact. All of these pollution’s are polluting the water.
Paris has also been trying to diminish the pollution made from cars by making a “car ban”. It means that only cars with even license plates can drive at certain hours or days, and cars with odd plate drive the opposite days that the evens can. The driving ban started because pollution levels were dangerously high for 5 days in a row.
2. COPENHAGEN (DENMARK)
Copenhagen is truly a green city surrounded by water and parks, with climate-friendly citizens to match. Copenhageners excel in combining sustainable solutions with growth and high quality of life. In fact, Copenhagen was European Green Capital 2014 and aims to become the world’s first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. Experience it for yourself. Swim in the clean waters of the city’s harbor baths, stay in a sustainable hotel, eat organic, and ride the electric city bikes around the old maritime city.
Danes are often said to be the happiest people in the world, and Copenhagen among the world’s most liveable cities. Some of the reasons are a large number of green oases and open spaces with fresh air, some of the cleanest water in the world – for drinking and swimming – as well as a city overflowing with bicycles, and high availability and consumption of organic produce. Denmark is also one of the safest countries in the world and has an excellent and efficient infrastructure.
3. VENICE (ITALY)
Venice is so fragile, in its physical, environmental and even socio-economic dimensions, that we must develop viable plans to ensure its survival,” says da Mosto. The first-hand experience of nature often generates more emotion than dry scientific data: she reports that locals and visitors who had thought of the lagoon as just a muddy space have been moved by the marsh’s beauty.
The Venice lagoon is a winter migration halt and breeding area for 200,000 birds. Along with Tunisia’s Gulf of Gabès, it is one of the most important wetlands in the Mediterranean Basin. The exhibition includes taxidermic specimens of 24 of the 60 species of waterbird found in the lagoon, lent by the Venetian Museum of Natural History.
4. BUDAPEST (HUNGARY)
Budapest is probably the most beautiful city in the water. Walking over the chain bridge to witness the beauty of Buda and Pest looking back at one another across the Danube is pure perfection.
When the lights come on in Budapest, make your way down to the river and take in the splendor of the two cities.
5. BERN (SWITZERLAND)
Bern, Switzerland is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the political center of Switzerland. It doesn’t feel like a political hub though, this city was made for walking.
The walkways of Bern are all covered making for pleasant shopping in any type of weather.
Seeing Bern from the river reinforces our decision of why we included it in our list of the most fascinating natural environment in Europe.
