I’m obsessed with the Eurovision Song Contest and this blog is dedicated to visiting all of the countries that have entered Eurovision.
In addition to the 40+ countries who enter the contest each year, there are some countries which have withdrawn from the contest, or no longer exist.
In total there are 52 Eurovision countries – which means I have 52 countries to visit.

Which countries can enter Eurovision?
To enter the Eurovision Song Contest, a country needs to be a member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). To be a member of the EBU, a country needs to be within the European Broadcasting Area.
This area includes some countries on the outskirts of Europe which is why countries such as Israel are able to enter the contest.
The only exception to this rule is Australia who were invited to the contest as special guests in 2015. Australia have taken part in the contest ever since.
