Europe, as a continent, is often known as a cultural hub. Every country in Europe boasts of a rich history especially in the fields of art, sculpture, painting and architecture. This can majorly be traced back to the Renaissance movement that happened in Europe and brought many new styles with it. Along with artistic exhibitions and shows, there are also several other types of events being held in Europe for people who like travelling and especially those who have a keen interest in the wild. Some of the major shows and events are as below.
