Top 10 European Countries to Visit


The Top TenXW


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!

Germany is the best country in Europe

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

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

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

France for the win!

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 of many people are thinking about them.

Mindless and so nasty population is Italian people.

Not so famous, overestimated, should be not more No 100.

World it's plenty of really beautiful country.

Italy is called a modern country, but it's only old fashion, bad infrastructure, dirty cities, rubbish everywhere in countryside, only Italian food that demonstrate a really bot open country.

Migrants have no jobs and are only wandering the streets lost, and Italian are so rude, so unpolite, so arrogant.

Number 1 yes, but number 1 of the worst country.

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.


Italy is one of the most beautiful place on earth, yet one of the worst ever in terms of living. No jobs, a lot of corruption, NO free-press, a government that resemble a private company more than a people institution and still, people there keep electing the same people since more than 30 years and have no guts to try to change things.

You will find in Europe other country not overrated like Italy.

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

This country is kick-ass

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

London is the best place to go in my opinion even though it is very expensive - Ajkloth

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?

Greece is very beautiful! - Libra888

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

I'm going to Spain in a couple of hours. - PizzaGuy

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!

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.

I really want to "Czech" this place out. Czech Republic FOREVER!

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.

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

It is great people there are very friendly

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

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!

It is awful I live there I'd love to move

How is Wales so low? Beautiful countryside and amazing coastlines. It has amazing history along with modern cities such as Cardiff and Swansea which are amazing places to visit.

Green, that's the best word I could describe about Wales. The countryside is fantastic, and it's full of forests. The language is unique in many ways. It should be higher up, definitely. Wales, it's the country of poets, musicians and artists. It is THE place for me.

Love from somewhere else not in the UK!

Google up Snowdonia. Wales should not be 30th I'm telling you. Top 15 at the very least. Unbelievable scenery of coastlines, countryside, castles, loads of mountains plus many, many landmarks and attractions! Wales is THE perfect country for the tourist. - jgwmz1993

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
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

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

Best country about me, I visited over 20 country but Turkey is different.

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.

I love bag pipes ^•^ and Scotland (which I have Scottish blood, lol) and would really enjoy going there. - ScourgetheHedgehog

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.

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 food, weather, roads, friendly people, excellent infrastructure!
