To me Europe is the least scenic continent (not counting Antarctica). However, Eurasia is spectacular.

Are you sure?
Isn't Iceland situated in Europe?
And what about the rest of Scandinavia?

Are you kidding? Ever driven through the alps, or Italy. Then there is Greece, Spain, Norwegian Fjords, the Carpathians, Montenegro, and much more. Europe is one of the most scenic and diverse places on Earth. Not only naturally, but then you have good roads, mountain side villages, and castles everywhere. Where else can you get that? Just because there is no tropical jungle doesn't mean it is not scenic.

Agreed with everything you've said. Just want to add that all those is enhanced by changing seasons of the year. I mean Alps are not beautiful same way in winter as well as their are in fall.

All we have is the Rockies, the Grand Canyon, the Appalachians, Yellowstone, beaches, the Great Lakes. (Hey, they're impressive. Chicago feels like it's on a coast.)....



Hadn't paid attention to this thread because I don't really associate Europe with scenery and nature. Other things, yes.

EDIT/DISCLAIMER/CLARIFICATION (before anyone gets mad at me...):
I am aware that Europe has scenery and nature, I just meant that that's not why I, for one, go there, because we've got our share of it over here and Europe's got other things. (All those cities...). If I were, say, a skier, I'd want to visit certain places in the Alps at least once in my life. Whereas when Europeans come over here, I tend to assume things like the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone are part of what they're after.

I found the statement that "Europe has the most beautiful roads on the planet" amusing (in a let's- pull-down-our-pants-and-get-a-ruler kind of way), and the list of pretty-much-every-place-in-the-world-outside-Europe-that-isn't-the-US* that was offered to counter it, um, not amusing.

*Okay, that's an exaggeration. Or exagerration. Never sure of that one. self-

Very interesting thread

It's not far from the Calar Alto Observatory (Wikipedia), which features another amazing road.

Our country doesn't have spectacular mountains, roads along the sea or though caves, but I'll still show two (officially 4) IMO quite beautiful roads in
Latvia
- Roads around the town of Sigulda. Most notably the P8 where while crossing the Gauja river valley you can see up to 3 old castles
P8: Sigulda - Krimulda (valley/historic buildings; best in autumn)

-
And the second one is the Daugava river's left bank road between Rīgas HES and Jēkabpils. Thankfully now all of it has tarmac!
IMO while it's nothing very special, it is still very beautiful and much more enjoyable than the alternatives - right bank's old A6 and the new P80/E22
P76&P85&P87: Rīgas HES - Jēkabpils (plain views of rivers, forests, fields, etc. Don't drive into the reservoirs!)


During good weather you can see the high-rises of Rīga from this place

Sometimes you don't need a spectacular environment or landscape, sometimes special circumstances can make an otherwise boring road picturesque. I remember driving a totally flat road this last autumn, the sun was setting and the golden and ochre leaves of the few trees which were placed along the road were shining while falling to the ground. I also remember driving another road in spring, the wheat was green and the wind moved the spikes making the fields look like a waving green sea. I have driven both roads again in different seasons of the year in different hours of the day, and they always seemed plain and boring.

I really love that just-before-sunset light. Almost anything looks good in it.

no. it would mean saddle pass, although saddle (sedlo) is actually geographical term for type of mountain pass.
