The Top Ten

I spent time in Germany when I was younger and studied German in high school and college. I love how pretty Germany is. I like the people too, they are very hard working and caring. The food is good, there is just so many good things about Germany.
Germany and Japan is awesome. Live strong.


I spent the best part of my life in Germany, once I was able to speak and understand the language life could not be better. From living, working, friends, it was great. And hope to return soon.
[Newest]I love to live in Germany.

I mean legal weed! Come on! And our social system is one of the best! So is our school system. The people here are world open and very kind
Netherlands is the best place to live in Europe if you are non European because Dutch people are the least racist and most fair in comparison to other nations in Europe.
But in general I think Germany is the best country in Europe if you are German.
Amazing. everything in the right place. dutch people are great, too bad for the immigration. they are ruin the Netherlands, you guys should kick out all those intolerant parasites. you don't have any obligation to work your ass off, to support them.

Quite a tidy country, moderate weather, beautiful countryside, strong economy and strong military.

Also in England you are entitled to free medical care (including free GP visits) and also schooling for up to 18s is completely free. England has Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College and UCL which are world renowned universities.

London is a city of opportunities, with paths for almost any career. London is filled with rich history and beautiful monuments. London is a massive city, but travel is efficient and very cheap thanks to the London Underground.

We have a low crime rate too.

I feel that England is a country where it is truly comfortable to live. England is tidy and well maintained, but above all, a country with a future.
Seeing my country listed here made me think about it for a moment, and what being a Brit meant to me. It's only then that I realised just how lucky I am to live in the greatest country in the world.

Steeped in history, and the mother of the modern world. Spreading enterprise and knowledge around the world, and taking civilisation to every corner of the globe. The birth place of engineering and one of the oldest seats of learning on the planet. One of the most tolerant and liberal countries, with unrivalled personal freedom and security. With justice and equality for all it's citizens. A great overall standard of living, and the freedom of expression the envy of most of the world.
Great cuisine, fantastic culture, arts, music, film, some of the worlds greatest sports events, we've even got the BBC!
Beautiful cities, stunning countryside full of charming little villages full of thatched cottages and little pubs.

Every country has it's problems, but Britians minor issues pale into insignificance when you realise the benifits of living in such a beautiful place.
It is a lovely country to live, and very tolerant, and free, beautiful villages, and some fantastic architecture, and Cathedral cities.
[Newest]England is an amazing country! It has a great economy and military while having a beautiful area to live in!

Romania is so good for live. They have Mountains, sea, castels, palaces. There are friendly people, the cities are awesome, this country is so beautiful.
Romania it is just beautyful. Mountains, wild forests, black sea, lakes, castels of transylvania. I lived in Italy and Ireland as well. But Romania is just amazing beautyful. And most of big cities are safe. Free medical GP, free schools and college, 2 years maternity leave. With a good job, Romania is family friendly, natural beauty and unespected civilized,

Most peaceful, beautiful, and homely country on the face of the earth. Great people, great views, and great chocolate.
I live in Switzerland and it's actually the best country to live in!
Amazing! Like you stated, the beauty, and people are wonderful. The cleanest air. Peace of mind!
[Newest]I lived in Lugano, Switzerland for a while. Very expensive but beautiful. I want to go back.

Canary Islands have a near perfect climate and the cost of living is cheap.
With its food, culture, cities (Madrid! ) it should be in the top ten
A beautiful country with a rich history, vibrant culture, and great food and wine. Unfortunately most of the Costas have now been ruined by Anglicisation, and the economy is a basket case, with the under 25's being hardest hit financially. Just be careful of the over zealous police handing out huge fines for minor traffic violations... €600 fine for not displaying English tax disc, even though it was taxed!
[Newest]Spain is one of the most beautiful country and have beautiful persons.

It's the people. They are friendly and kind. Mountains sexy men. What else?
Pizza and Pasta
But unfortunately
Part of Italy is falling apart


The beauty, history, weather, people, and food!
[Newest]I love it for its architecture and its food

I only visited france twice but I really want to move from usa to france. I loved Avignon area.

The Contenders

Green, Clean, Hardworking people, and friendly people to. A country that received much abuse and survived. Ireland for the win!
Nice people, green, and a country that survived many years of abuse. Irish people are very hard workers. Ireland for the win!
I live in cork Ireland really good spot
[Newest]I live in Ireland BEST PLACE ever!

Best education system on the planet. Need I say more?
If I do: Extremely advanced economy
Very little inequality
Men & women are almost completely equal.
One of the bests economies in EU zone. Richer than many southern EU countries combined. Nice people. Very much reminds of Germany

The heart of Europe should be at least top 5. Very clean, friendly people combined with amazing nature that makes you think you are in the garden of Eden.
Very clear country.
Not so loud for the parties like London, but a piece of mind lives there probably.
It has hot summers and cold snowful winters
Its save and clean and very beautiful and there are so much things you can do there

Beautiful country, great standard of living. Worked there for one summer, found the people to be extremely friendly, open minded, and tolerant. The whole country is kept very clean and tidy, you'll hardly ever see graffiti or litter. The Swedes are hard working but have a great balance between work and leisure, with a very sizeable part of the population playing sports on a regular basis, they are generally very health conscious. There is also a lot of space around nine million people in a country nearly three times the size of the UK which has nearly sixty five million tells you all you need to know.
Very nice country. Full of beautiful and kind people. And they speak good English.


I wouldn't mind waking up to sunny weather and pretty landscapes every day rather that the moodiness and rain of my country..
Best country in the world with the best beaches and the most delicious foods... !
Best country in Europe


Scotland 21st? How is that possible? It's one of the most beautiful countries I've ever been to. Also the home of golf, and whiskey!

By the way, part of Turkey (the part where Istanbul is) is in Europe. The rest is in Asia.


I live for 7months in Turkey and I like the place
The best country in the world... Istanbul is very beautful by the way. I enjoyed 4 months in there!

How could Norway be #18?!
