2GermanyGermany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

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!

One of the country with best soccer team!

3Italy

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).

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

It looks just like France..

French and Italians look very alike

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

Its not so good its alright

5EnglandEngland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west.

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

Amazing country!

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 most beautiful country in Europe

7GreeceGreece, officially the Hellenic Republic, also known since ancient times as Hellas is a country located in southeastern Europe.

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?

I've visited Greece every summer for a couple of years now and I will probably never get tired of this beautiful country.

8SpainSpain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

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.

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

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!

I'm Spanish and Spain is one of the best places to visit take my word on it, there you will find from high peaks to amazing beaches and the best kind of people which will always be excited and happy to meet you! Spain should be in the top 5. All cities have their own amazing qualities and the history of Spain is deeply shown around Spain

9NorwayNorway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

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

I think that both Norway and Iceland are beautiful. But Norway takes the cake.

Sweden is very beautiful and fun. I would like to go back one day.

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

BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! Must go there, hospitality is very high, home of Apple Strudel, very good country.

12ScotlandScotland is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and covers the northern third of the island of Great Britain.

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's this on here! It has the worst weather ever! - coolguy101

13Czech RepublicThe Czech Republic, also known as Czechia, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

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.

My mom has been to Czech and she says that it is a beautiful country to visit. My babysitter also lives there. I've never been there but I bet it's gorgeous too.

14PortugalPortugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

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.

Might be small but SUCH A RICH country culturally and geographically. I've never seen people so helpful and loving to tourists from other countries of Europe. Truly a beautiful country with amazing people.

16IrelandFormed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

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.

Ireland is simply one of the most magical countries in the world. It is no wonder that it has produced the finest poets and writers in the English language. It's landscape of green valleys, mist shrouded hills and lakes make it a romantic dream one that the people genuinely wish to share with you. Their hospitality is legendary so find the time to go there will be an experience you will never forget.

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

17Croatia

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

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, unique cities and the most beautiful sea and shore in the world. Must visit! - IceCream

Best country for vacation in Europe maybe even world.

19Finland

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.

Helsinki is my favorite city in Europe. It has nice architecture and friendly people.
