France is the largest country in Western Europe in area. The capital of France is Paris. The language is French. Their national anthem is La Marseillaise. The French flag is a tri-colour like Ireland except the colours are red, white and blue. King Louis XVI used the colours to represent France.

Some of their tourist attractions are the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre and the French Alps, where people go to ski. Marseilles is a really old city.
France is famous for its cookery; lots of French words are used in English cookery. France is also famous for its wine. Limestone caves were used as wine cellars during the two World Wars.
France is good at soccer and won the world cup in 1998. There are many famous French footballers like Eric Cantona, Thierry Henry, Samuel Nasri, Bacary, Sanga, Patrice Evra and Hugo Llores.
I hope to visit France some day.
