France, the third-largest country in Europe, lies between the Atlantic Ocean on its west, the English Channel to the north and the Mediterranean Sea on the south. It also touches Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium. France has been a nation for more than a thousand years. Its capital, Paris, stands for gaiety, beauty and fine art in the minds of people everywhere. France itself is not as large as the American state of Texas; but it controls land that is many times its size in many parts of the world. Twice in its history, France has been the most powerful of all countries.
