Top 10 European Countries to Visit

The Top TenXW

1Germany

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.

yay I'm going here this summer!

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!

Best land in Europe

2Italy

Here in Switzerland we have lots of Italians who immigrated with us for the last 150 years.
Each year and that for generations most of them, and by entire families are returning back to their own country (Italy). That shows how much they are not integrated and how much they do not want to really stayed in Switzerland. Those people do not give any added value to our country. They just refuse to be pure Swiss.

And we guess that this stupid and arrogant way to do is not only visible in Switzerland but also in major countries where they have migrated all along the ages.

So they just come with their food pizza and pasta, eat just that and never try to tend to be Swiss.

Most of other migrants from Asia, Africa and South-America for example are much more respectable people and therefore much to be respected.

And Italians will never accept in their own country someone doing the same as they are doing.

For this reason Italians are very racist, in despite ...more

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!

I've visited Italy three times now, and I'm from Washington, USA. I visited quite all the country, from the North, were you can find the most fashionable city in the world: Milan, the most romantic one, venice and my favourite city in Italy: Turin; to the South, with Naples, Puglia and Sicily, that are wonderful regions. I've been in the most artistic cities such as Florence and Rome and I can say that Italy has one of the richest history in the world and the richest art heritage, that America could forget. But I have to say that Italians, who are very nice many times and very worm people, they're also a little racist (not all obviously) and not well organised. I really suggest to go to Italy at least once in your life, because it's an immersion in art and culture (that's why it's know for the great art, music, literature too and certainly cuisine).

Italy? Don't know exactly where to locate this country, but I'm sure Italians don't even know where Wisconsin is located, I will never have a thousands miles of flight for actually visiting what? Better stay and visit the USA continent.

4Netherlands

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.

People in the Netherlands are awesome. They are so friendly and open-minded. It's the land with the most happy people in the world. And of course Amsterdam... love it

The Netherlands is a modern country with its traditional buildings and character, great restaurants, great beer, amazing night life and one hell of a good time if you like to smoke week! One word : Glorious

5Greece

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 it's 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?

Cool beaches

6Switzerland

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.

It's absolutely breathtaking, the scenery, everything. Every day for 4 years, I got greeted by people who I didn't even know in my village. I don't think I will move to a better country in my whole life. Brilliant.

The weather is absolutely beautiful!

7England

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 - MatrixGuy

Been to England and I loved its culture, history and people. Didn't have enough time to explore all of England and planning to go back probably end of 2016.

8Spain

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

Great beaches, interesting stuff, cool cities

9Norway

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.

Come on it is the happiest place and you live probably the best life. Winter sports are fantastic Norway so come on make this country overtake Germany

Norway is the most beautiful country I have seen. This list is totally wrong. Norway should be number 1

10Austria

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

Where Mozart was born!

11Sweden

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.

Don't know why Sweden is so low down on this list, the cities are beautiful, people are nice, fluent in English and it's just a fantastic country, I would want to live there.

12Czech 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 the best city in the world

Prague is one of the best places to visit in Europe! Rich history and music.

Very very rich country where is not Muslims

13Scotland

A country that has contributed through out its history (T.V. , Telephone, antibiotics, radar, the steam engine) yet isn't egotistical like other big contributors like England, the Netherlands or Portugal.

Also doesn't have the smarmy ethnocentric streak of their joint closest neighbours the Irish, although they don't cultivate their diaspora like the latter which can be a negative.

All in all, among the nicer European nations.

The Best countries in the world let a lone Europe

Should be a lot higher...Way nicer than england, Germany, and Spain. - Mr-Me

How is Scotland not in the top 10?!

14Portugal

A very underrated country and often overshadowed by Spain, this country has a very rich history and culture. The weather is perfect, the people are genuinely nice and helpful. They speak foreign languages very easily. The food is quite original and tasty with all the influences from their ex-colonies. Some of the best beaches in Europe. Lovely little cities and villages. Good looking people. It really should be in the Top 10.

Spain is richer, Portugal is more charming. Spanish are louder, portuguese are friendlier. Spain is wet, Portugal is cool. In Spain you eat potatoes, in Portugal you eat fresh fish from the ocean. Spain is crowded with tourists. Portugal is the new spot! Spain is flat. Portugal's cities are built on hills... So much to say...

Portugal has everything! Beaches, wonderful weather, breathtaking landscapes, fantastic castles, palaces and museums. It's the only country in Europe to have all together.

If you think Spain is good, its because you didn't see Portugal yet... What a scenic and romantic country!

15Ireland

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.

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

Actually the whether is often predictable. Rain.

Why?

Because...

I know. I live in Ireland and my mother is Irish. - FennikenFan9

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!

Ireland rocks

17Croatia

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

Easily best country in the world

18Turkey

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

Turkey is the most unique country in Europe it combines Middle Eastern style and European styles

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 nice also Romania

20Finland

It's expensive in Finland, but the country is so beautiful! Lot of forest's, lot of lake's (Finland is called Country of the thousand lake's) friendly people, and of course, over 2 million Sauna's, in summer, lot of music festival's around Finland and many more other great things. I really suggest Finland to visit.

Beautiful country, with lots of forests, lakes and snow up in the North. It's very underrated.

Jesus Christ, people go to overrated like Germany, France, Italy. Well this place is extremely underrated.
