     • The world is huge. An ordinary aeroplane would need 50 hours to fly around the world.

     • Europe isn't so big. It would take just a few hours to fly to any city in Europe (where there are non-stop flights).

     • Russia is larger than all the other counties of Europe combined. More than 140 million people live there.

     • The Vatican City State is the smallest. It takes 45 minutes to walk around it. Mr F knows because his son walked around it!

     • Many people travel between countries in Europe, or move.

     • Much is familiar, but other things are different than they are in Sweden.

     • Before there was an EU it was harder to study in other countries. It was also harder to travel there to work.
