The Top Ten

1
Germany
I love Germany, because it has got all you need! In the north the coast lines, the east much history about the world wars, the west has got big cities and great architechture (every part has got wonderful architechture). And the last one the south: There are the wonderful alps and the beautiful castles like Neuschwanstein castle.
Best country to visit by far! So much amazing architecture and historic sites as wel as breath taking modern architecture. Germany has the biggest zoo in Europe as well as the biggest rollercoaster in the third biggest theme park so lots to see if your not interested in history too! Also the cuisine is a must see if you have a sweet tooth!
yay I'm going here this summer!
[Newest]I visited 2 time

2Italy
Italy has the riches history in Europe if not in the whole world. We have more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country in the world. Our people are warm, kind and welcoming. The only problem is that we can sometimes be close-minded in some aspects like tourism, we receive so many tourists annually and we seem not to give much importance to the fact that we need to make their stay enjoyable in the sense that our roads in the south are in terrible state, traffic is horrible, we need more beach resorts etc. I would say that Italy need to take example from Spain tourism-wise. If we can get to that level and have the tourist attraction that we have we can surely beat France or any other country in terms of international arrivals.

VISIT ITALY!
it seems one can easily spend two weeks in this country and still not see all there is to see. I think Italy, as a country, offers the most bang for the buck. I'm going as soon as I can!
I love italy there food is the best and portugal and spain should be on this list
[Newest]I love Italy, I go there every year. After the first time I've been there I left my heart there forever. I am Armenian and I consider Italy as my second homeland. Italy is full of art, history and what's the most important it is filled with love and warmness of it's people.

3France
Simply the most visited country of the world! Whopping 80000000 tourists a year! That's mighty and I am not a French :) Besides, film festivals, climate, fashion, food makes it a great place to visit. And, not to forget the movies with great sex! :P
First of all France is the best country for entertainment and family fun and attractions its also the best country for cold nature there are so many reasons that the sentences that I wrote about France there are a lot of beautiful stuff in France that I'm not going to write about there are so many I'm just going the most important things

Attractions; Eiffel tower the lover Notre de trhomphie and the French Rivera ; entertainment ; champs eyleys tasulioes gardens and the biggest restaurant in the world Moulin rouge ; family fun ;Disneyland Paris ; cold nature ;the tallest mountain in Europe mount blance French alps grain alps the gardens of Versailles thanks
Their culture lifestyles festivals food are all amazing especially their food
My dad wnt there and in 2 days he brought a full luggage of gifts from france. He went to louvre and he couldn't finish the whole place because every where around him where artwork sculptures and stuff got to visit france
[Newest]I am from Philippines. France is one of my favorite country to live. Along USA & Germany

4Switzerland
The best place in the world! So clean and posh! Everything here is so upper class and every one is rich and elegant. The scenery, the food, the beautiful towns there's noting quiet like it!
This place is BEAUTIFUL! It has a lot of amazing scenery with amazing mountain ranges. It would be a great place for an adventurous type which could be you.
Good place 2 visit
[Newest]Awesome place! Not boring at all! I don't understand how people say it's boring pure the one making it boring by not going out! Most of the people are very nice!

5Netherlands
Great country! One of the friendliest country in the world (very open-minded). Amazing culture. And the architecture.. I love the cities there. Visit The Netherlands. In my opinion the best country in Europe. Visit Amsterdam (of course), Utrecht (very beautiful), Deventer (small but one of the oldest cities in Europe, and very cosy). Greetings from Italia!
Love this country very much. Nice people; good food; they understand foreign languages very well; and most important of all the country has a beautiful landscape, dominated by both cities and nature.
Netherland is great country and full of historic place my favourite cities there are amsterdam, rotterdam, the hague
[Newest]Best food ever. Friendliest people in the world.

6England
How can England be 10th? I live here, and apart from the very unpredictable weather, England has stunning countryside, very interesting history and amazing attractions such as Big Ben, the national history museum, The London Eye, The Tower Of London, Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge and the national gallery! :) have fun exploring such a beautiful place
I live here and I love it! How could it be tenth?! I don't know where else in Europe I could live in, because Britain's so Great! It's in the name: "Great Britain"! But if I were to VISIT another European country, it would be Italy. Definitely.
I would love to visit this country someday, the home country of football, it has a rich history and cities like London, Manchester

[Newest]So much stuff to learn here, try it

7Greece
Gorgeous islands, amazing beaches, beautiful sunsets that turn 8 different colors, long history which you need years to learn, great nightlife, fun loving people, good food, always sunny, the water in Greece must be the cleanest in all the Mediterranean its so clean it sparkles and you can see your face in it
Greece is one of the most historically deep countries in the world. It offers great food, ancient monuments and the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. It is one the most amazing destinations in the world.
Sunny, good food, good people, good sea, beautiful women and a bit of high prices but.. what can you do?
[Newest]Great people, great food, and the best beaches in all of Europe, and so much to do there you will never be bored

8Austria
Austria is the best place to visit! There are so many sights like famous castles or churches and also attractions like the Prater! Also, Austria is very clean and the people are extremely nice!
Austria is a very beautiful and traditional place! Come here and enjoy the mountains and nature!
Best place in the world, because it's the home of that gap toothed, sweaty AND oily, beef cake we all love

9Spain
Even though the world class cities of Madrid and Barcelona steal more than their well deserve fair share of the spotlight from other international destinations, Spain has the unmistakable European Old World charm, yet that escense which you can't really describe and hence you must experience for yourself. Zaragoza, Toledo, Cordoba, and the Spanish planes will show you more than you bargain for, weather you look for culture to absorb, good weather, or somewhere to take a breather.
A lot of things and variation to see (from beaches to mountains, from rainforest to almost desert, from cities to small villages...), good climate, very good food, clean and safe. Enjoy it!
Madrid is the best European city I've ever visited.. It's amazing how people there treat you as if you were one of them
[Newest]Spain is awesome :-D

10Ireland
Filled with history and beautiful scenery no matter where you look. The people are genuine, fun and super hospitable! This is my favorite European country, and I'm not of Irish descent. Tourism is much more reasonable than other countries and the Irish really give quality service to their tourist. I'm pleasantly impressed. Ireland exceeded my expectations in every way.
Best Country In The World! You Wont Be Disappointed! Beautiful Countrysides And Cities! Loads Of Fun! Gorgeous Beaches And Water Parks! Lovely People! They Don't Drink As Much As Everyone Thinks! So genuineness! Just Goo!
Lovely rich, natural country with stunning scenery and green lush country sides and with breathtaking coastlines and beaches. Generally nice country and friendly people despite the stereotypical fights between the religions and of course the unpredictable weather! But when Ireland is sunny honestly in my opinion one of the nicest countries to be and live in
[Newest]I am part Irish.

The Contenders

11Czech Republic
Castles, Nature and Prague.. very nice city welcoming people and the best thing about Czech Republic is the atheism rate which is about 90%.. That is a dream country for all open minded, smart and science-universe aware folk.
Prague is one of the best places to visit in Europe! Rich history and music.
Prague is the best city in the world
[Newest]Amazing castles and nature

12Croatia
Must-to-visit! I've been there many times and I'm going again this summer. My favourite places are Zagreb, Cres and Sibenik. People there speak english (not that great, but who cares :-) ) and they are so nice and helpful. And the beaches... Heaven. So many historical buildings, and I love their culture. So quiet and peaceful, completely opposite than Manhattan (NYC) where I live. CAN'T WAIT SUMMER!
Old people don't speak english well but younger people talk very good.
Once I asked a boy (who was probbably 12-13 years old) where is the shopping center. I was surprised because he could speak perfectly. I asked him if he is from Britain because his accent was the same as bitish, and he told me that he has always lived in Croatia
SO PEOPLE IN CROATIA CAN REALLY SPEAK ENGLISH
Beautiful beaches, nice people, amazing historical cities (Dubrovnik, Split etc. )
Visiting Croatia again this summer. Can't wait
Old, unique cities and the most beautiful sea and shore in the world. Must visit!

IceCream

[Newest]Crystal clear water and amazing history! Definitely the next place you should go on vacation.

13Norway
Norway was voted the most beautiful country in the world, and I have to agree; I have been to 20 countries and Norway outshines them all. Lots to see and do, I love the culture and the fjords and history and shopping and food and mountain hiking and the people. I would say this list is wrong and Norway is #1.
I love this country! Great food, good culture (and much of it), and the people is really nice if you get to know them. Norway got a lot of viking history museums and the Sami culture in the north.
Norway is awesome place to travel and live really awesome

14Sweden
Just got back from a trip from Sweden and I have to say I'm amazed how beautiful Sweden is. People just must visit this beautiful country.
Beautiful country, Great cities, People very kind, many things to do. After my trip to Sweden I official want to move there.
Sweden has great cities and nature! Lots of museums as well. Definitely worth a visit.
[Newest]I like Sweden, I wish that I visit to Sweden and meet to their kind peoples.

15Russia
We went two times to travel to Russia and we fell in love with this country. Russia amazing country. I think living there is quite interesting and not boring. Russia and the Russian are different than the rest. I advise everyone to visit
Biggest country ever, it has a very interesting history.
I hate Russia but I have nothing against the people

16Turkey
Please put Istanbul in the first place ( I swear to God this city is stunning ) have been almost all of Europe I found istanbul one of the best, visit and see, I promise you will never wish to go! LOVE YOU ISTANBUL
If you want to visit, Turkish people have a great hospitality. You all will feel welcome. Also Turkey isn't just Istanbul, there are really great cities to visit at East and West. As a Russian, I spent five of my vacations in Antalya, amazing city... They have the best coasts and a great culture.
Turkey is the most unique country in Europe it combines Middle Eastern style and European styles
[Newest]I think Turkey is one of the most unique destinations in the World, it's probably my favourite European destination along with Italy and Spain.

17Denmark
It's the best of the best country I love Denmark till I die
Wonderful place.. kind people.. and not to forget architecture and great food.. best restaurant in the world..

19Iceland
It's the most unique place to go. Great people, amazing food and the cleanest air and water that one can eat and drink.
Never visited but I think it should be up the list more... I will visit someday... It seems very underrated...
It is a fantabulous country near the aurora borealis. A calm island with poping geysers
[Newest]I really want to go there. Should be higher.

20Portugal
Country with the most history plus it is one of the oldest countries in the world, Portugal was already Portugal when most countries were still scattered around like france and spain ( castille). To me all european countries are beautiful but this one just has so much history and beauty, should be in the top 5.
Portugal has everything! Beaches, wonderful weather, breathtaking landscapes, fantastic castles, palaces and museums. It's the only country in Europe to have all together.
Great beaches, great food, amazing weather!
[Newest]Great food, weather, roads, friendly people, excellent infrastructure!
