The United Kingdom of Great Britain and North Ireland, occupies, as the name says, the wide island of Great Britain, constituted from the 3 historical areas of England, Wales and Scotland and the northern part of the island of Ireland (the Ulster).
It is a historical constitutional monarchy; up to half of the last century the most important and powerful nation in the world, today, with the end of the colonialism,it is a state of more less importance, even if one of the military and economic greater powers of the planet.
England is strongly inhabited; other areas have very low density. Here the industrialization was born, that already at the end of the eighteenth century changed the western world, from rural to urban and industrial.
Except London, town of big glamour and historical thickness among the most important ones of the world, and little other exceptions (York, Edinburgh...) the English towns are grey and bad.
But how many very beautiful small towns and enchanting countries are scattered on the English and Scottish territory from Salisbury to Winchester; from Wells to Penzance; from Ely to Lincoln; from Chester to Gloucester; from Durham to Elgin; from Oban to Inverness...
And how the English countryside, from the Cornwall to the Lake District, from the Loch Ness and to the Islands Hebrides is good!
