Asked in Ireland
What does the Irish country look like?
The main thing people notice about Ireland is how green it is. It has a lot of grass and trees and bushes and mountains and valleys and rivers in the countryside. As Ireland gets a lot of rain, green things grow very well and there are no desert or really dry areas in Ireland. Ireland's countryside is always very beautiful. Ireland has also got a lot of towns and cities and so they looked like any built-up areas. There are also a lot of green areas within the towns and cities and so there are lots of parks in them.

Constantinople was the largest city in the European Middle Ages with a population of 500.000, which for those days was huge. There were also other big cities.
