The table on this page provides you with a summary of facts for each country in Europe. The name of the country in English and in the official languages of that country are in the first column. The second column shows the area of the country in km2. The third column tells you the country's population. The fourth column shows the population per km2 which is a way of showing how crowded a country is. Kazakhstan's figure is 6 meaning there are 6 people per kilometre, the lowest in Europe, meaning Kazakhstan is very uncrowded. Meanwhile, in Monaco, there are 16,236 people per kilometre making Monaco extremely crowded! The fifth column tells you the name of the country's currency. The final column lists the main native languages of that country - either official languages throughout the country of languages which are only official in one region. When figures are updated on this page they should also be updated on the corresponding country page (and vice-versa).
