Worst Countries In Europe


The Top TenXW


Famous of suppression of human right, freedom of association and choice, supply military means to junta states such as Syria generally a vicious police state and human trafficking capital of the world.

The world's biggest nuclear arsenal aimed at western Europe.
A country that is proud of its power to destroy. The Russians suppressed half of Europe for 45 years and don't feel sorry for it.

These people are arrogant as hell. The Serbs in this country do not give a crap about how anyone else feels. What the hell would this country need to actually be liked by people? Plus, there is lot's of dead empty land. Just like the dead empty hearts of te politicians in this place.

Totally agree with this list

It's amazing how such a small country can sustain one of the worst and widely spread mafias in Europe.

SUCKS so embarrassing thinking that they are better than Greece
Greece is much much better than Albania

Muslims in Europe, talk about being uncivilized.

Currently polluting Switzerland and ruining their culture, they'd be better off if they drowned in the sea rather than fleeing from Kosovo.
Truly is a stain on the continent.

Hey, take that back! Not all Muslims are uncivilized look at Turkey or Singapore!

Its amazing how one country can produce and indoctrinate so many of their offspring to hate other people. its quite sad. But nothing strange considering that most of them support Isis.

Err, poor country!? Poverty!? Crime!? What!? Nonsense. US, for example, has a much, much higher poverty rate than Serbia. That's a lot. Many other countries who are more developed than Serbia have way higher poverty rates. Pretty much everyone here can afford the usual luxuries of today's world - a car, a house or an apartment, television, a PC or a laptop, a smartphone, etc. Of course, not everyone needs a smartphone or a computer so maybe they don't have them, but they can afford them. Talk about poverty. Really low poverty rate. The GDP may not be so high but neither is poverty.

Next up, crime. Crime!? Pfft. I live in a town with some 60 000 - 70 000 people. I can't remember the last time a major crime was committed here. Murder? Absolutely no way. Armed robbery? Nope. Of course, sometimes some crook is gonna steal something but even that rarely happens. Even in the capital with 2 000 000 people, Belgrade, the crime rate is low. Again, the US has a way higher crime rate, ...more

Poor country for good people.

Serbia is one of the best countrees in Europe!

Well that is really a revelation for us all, wow, you know what I mean!

It used to be a nice country once upon the time. The long war and ethnic conflicts destroyed the country and changed the attitude of the people.

I am from Ukraine. Trust me IT SUCKS!

its very dirty country

Full of prostitutes, alcoholics and thieves. Do not walk the streets at night. Filthy place. Very cheap cost of living. But its like it was back in the war. Dated, dirty and dangerous. AVOID IT

Boring country, not as bad as Russia, but it still sucks. No wonder why the Metro developers 4A Games relocated to Malta.

SO racist! I came with an IVY league diploma, and their employment-office offered me a cleaning job! I have worked for 3 governments as an analyst- but according to them, I should clean, since I am not Swedish! Lived there for 2 years, and NOBODY helped me with my kids stroller if I needed to get on the bus, nobody ever said sorry for bumping into me, VERY uncivilized people, and STILL they think that they invented technology, they only talk about how great they are. They BBQ EVERYWHERE, even on balconies, like next to your window, on the 6th floor.. It is like they came from caves, they just don't know how to behave around people- like Neanderthal-like creatures. They STARE at people, my husbands black friend felt so bad after a walk- they ALL stared, and even went after him in the shop so he wouldn't steal anything. They, or many, won't move even if you ask them politely. The girls sleep with anyone for a drink - like prostitutes really. They puke everywhere, and get drunk like it ...more

Italians are rude, arrogant, coarse, uneducated, unpolite.

They believe they are the best of the world, and their country is just a ruin apparently tourists love the ruins

They hate anyone is not Italian they are or xenophobe or they treat you like a kid.

They 'drive' like unbrained people, they do not take care of their cities, landscapes, rubbishes every where, beaches all private and expensive, just for rich ignorant Italians and carbon copy of Italians.

Horrible country to live in and to visit.

Yes that is true, there in Italy, people are very racist.

It's so hard as a black or Arabic to find a good job, homes and it seems that because you are not Italian, you have to struggle for anything.

Italians don't hesitate to show their hates, specially when you are foreigner. I was tired of the racism in Italy.

I call all migrants to come here in Italy to make change things.

We will succeed, because there is a lot to do here anywhere Italians are so lazy and inefficient.

A country with a shut and very racist and ignorant people. I lived in this country I think is very but very boring the houses are very small and very expensive. The food is good but very expensive is impossible to find a work. Italy is not a country for me and other persons

The worst country of the Europe and of the world. There isn't freedom, and they just wish a war with Armenia. They want to ruin Armenian Nagorno Karabakh again! I truly hate this country!

Do not care about environment and exploiting their resources

For all of you saying Azerbaijan is not European, it kind of is due to some sort of European border which I have no idea about (Otherwise Russia is basically not European either, as only the western part is... So if Azerbaijan is 'classed' as European, then so goes for Israel, Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Ok I'll stop babbling...)

This country is a very horrible country, in certain places. Building walls to prevent competing nations in the 1st European Games from seeing all the awful poverty near Baku (So I herd) With a beautiful structure known as to The Flame Towers looks so great! Thank god it's a distraction from the semi-crap poor housing. Some are beautiful, but let's face it, the majority look like the cheap and god awful council houses in the UK. Not only is the population noted for selfish excuses for humans, but seriously lack kindness and compassion. 'Murderer' DNA engraved into there stupid heads (So I've herd). A country with such a crap government and a ...more

Greece gave democracy and civilasation to the whole Europe.. We owe them for that.. I am not Greek but I've been there for vacations many times.. They are poor.. So what? Awesome hospitality, awesome food, awesome beaches with an awesome history to go with..

I'm not greek but I solemnly believe Greece isn't nearly one of the worst countries in Europe. Sure their economy is going downhill lately but it's improved everyday. Besides my country was in a worse position some years ago and now it's one the superpowers in Europe (Germany). I can't wait to visit Greece again this summer

Beautiful beaches, good food, amazing weather.
Economy sucks, people can be rude, dangerous drivers, and too many gypsies.

Beautiful country with terrible economy

I've been living in London for about 5.5 year now, which means that I should get used to it, but for whatever reason I can't. I just don't see a point in why people are asking me hundreds of times "are you alright" or "smile", when they themselves are pissed off all the time. Try to get on the tube between 8-10am and You will see how people are smiling, squashed like sardines in a tin. Of course You are late...again? Boss never understands that. At work You have to smile, because if You are not smiling then it means it's not for You. The weather is poor, people are very, very, very rude and arrogant, and these are the ones that usually will point out that it's You that is rude. What else...the food is really poor, people have got no taste whatsoever, You will bring them crap on a plate and they will say it was delicious but will be complaining that the waiter was rude because was not smiling. People here have got huge ego, and all You can feel all the time by ...more

A lot of people come to England with a dream, particularly London. Your dream hasn't worked out, your obviously still waiting tables and not getting anywhere. Maybe it's time for you to return to where you came from. With the experience you've picked up, maybe you can make something of yourself in your own country now.

Born here, lived her all my life and I when I am old enough to leave, I will leave and never bring my ass here again.

Full of Chavs, crap government, immigration problems, unpredictable and appalling weather, football and skinhead hooliganism, Expensive living costs, teenage pregnancy and lots and lots more!

If government could stop Romanian immigrants, that would be great!

The UK went into serious decline under 13 years of Labour Government (1997-2010). They more than tripled the national debt (from £300 billion to over £1 trillion), dumb down education standards (by introducing weak/poor subjects rejected by employers/universities), increased bureaucracy (in education, health and other public services), encouraged open door mass immigration (without quotas/security checks), created a nanny state (with bigger state sector and a smaller private sector) and failure to control house prices, making it difficult for first time buyers to climb the property ladder.

Also the Labour Party have the worst councils than the other parties. They like to increase council tax and squander their budget on more bureaucracy and fake projects. Labour Councils cause the highest unemployment rates, poorer standard of schools, health, housing and other public services than quite a lot of non-labour councils. Labour Councils are mostly responsible for not recovering ...more

I'm a home owner in London so love England. We need more immigrants in England to push my property price up further. Rule Britannia!

England is the best country to ever exist!

The only one in Europe that still has capital punishment death penalty.
They forgot the Ordero not kill!

A very beautiful place with a rich culture exploited by dirty politicians and invaded previously by dirty soviets for making their own shield.

Belarus dictatorship very bad. Support NATO and European values, not some dictator! They are for Putin who is evil, not good as us western imperialists an fascist. Heil Hitler! Viva Merkel and NATO!

Worst human rights in Europe, above Russia

Try and go in to the mountains. No stealing there and very beautiful landscapes... Or try old area called Transilvania. I will bet you will change your opinion

Only in to the mountains is no stealing, it makes sense - there are no thieves, and is not for sure, climber-thieves can reach you in to the mountains, so keep an eye on your equipment.

As a Romanian who lived most of her life in England, I can say that Romania is not a bad country. I'm originally from Bucharest and I can tell you that the crime rate there is actually pretty low, not sure about other parts because I've only really been to the main cities. It's a beautiful country and you can't tell me otherwise, some sceneries are absolutely breathtaking. Also, our culture isn't the worst? Whoever said that is clearly uneducated on what it's like to be Romanian. Some of our culture is Latin and Slavic influenced, and our culture is generally to be respectful of everyone. It's also a very child-centric culture, considering why so many parents leave the country to work their asses off to provide for their child. Honestly, if we weren't positioned near communist countries, our economy would've probably been brilliant considering our beautiful geography, history and we could've made some fair money off farming and resources. It's a shame really, because as a country it ...more

I know many Romanian people.ALL of them are decent hard-working people. Peddling crude and inaccurate stereotypes is intellectually indolent. A country of over 20 million people cannot be reduced to two or three character traits that all are assumed to possess. Anyone who does so is quite simply a cretin.

I think it depends whether you are in Transylvania and the other regions or Romania - Harri666

The Contenders


Turkey simply... SUCKS! The people are unfriendly, racist, hostile and rude. The food is heavy and so rich in fat. The landscapes are not something to die for, like Greece or Italy for example. Overall, WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.

Only 3% of Turkey's territory is in Europe, 97% in Asia It's religion and culture is Middle-Eastern.

Since when Turkey is in Europe? :-D Anyway, all the Turkish people that I have personally known were arrogant, backward people who thought they were the best things that ever walked the face of the Earth just because they are from Turkey. Funny how they are not even aware that no one cares what they think. Also they hate Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Christians, atheists etc. They come from different ethnic backgrounds but get hostile in the name of being Turkish too just like they do when it comes to their religion. I won't spend a penny in that country. Next! :-)

Since you were absent at school, you should study better geography!

It's a love country in Europe. Driving is fine if you can handle car and traffic. Other people are some problem with turkey.

Not a European country.

I love Poland. When I visited Poland, compared to other countries in Europe like England, France or Italy, I loved it. Poland is the best country. It is beautiful, historic and powerful. Loads of people make fun of Poland just because they are worse at football than England. I agree but it is an amazing country it self.

Good at fighting for freedom and independence for themselves and other nations, too bad their politicians can't sustain it... Kind of a paradox

I don't know how you can say that... Yes, polish are leaving our country but you can't tell to us it's the worst country in Europe. We are just weak and we don't have good politics. This country is poor and we was helping to Greece when they need that. We sent our money when we really need it too :(

None of you gave Greece money that's a German political joke... kid

Polish people are so racist.

The worst country in the world they have no freedom of religion and anything non-catholic won't be tolerated.

WHY DOES THE CHURCH HAVE ITS OWN COUNTRY. Or all the priests should have vatican citizenship and don't take benefits from the country they were born. And why is the other comment about Germany and Russia

You do not want to be male and under twelve in this country believe me!

I never understood why they made a church a country.

This is because this country was taken by the russians from Romania and after war the Russians let this country without money this is the true!

Moldova has to resolve issues over it's breakaway region of Transnistria.

People from Moldova are goodhearted, hardworking, peaceful and very patient... The problem with such a bad rating is: the circumstances that Moldova is dealing with... The high corruption and poverty in Moldova Is the consequence of being a part of Soviet Union... As we know most ex soviet countries have the same problems... One thing I know is the good attitude of most Moldavians, in the future Moldova will become a better place... I hope the Euro integration will help break through the iron curtain that paralyzed development in all aspects of life in Moldova... May God of Israel be With You Moldova!

I know people from Moldova and Eastern Europe and eastern European women don't like guys from Moldova, as soon as they mention they are from Moldova its Bye Bye. They have zero tolerance for them. Why is this?

One of the only third world countries in Europe

Germany is not the worst country in Europe, but can soon be. Due to the decadency among the people here, everything else that once had such beautiful values has degenerated by time. Technology, business, politics and especially, culture. Native German families have a population growth of 1.3 children the family and can no longer sustain itself till 2060. On the other hand, the German government approves to “any” foreign immigrant due to politically correctness and not only supports them financially but also their families within the immigrants root countries, thus ignoring the welfare of their own people. More than 3000 Businesses in Germany declare insolvency within a year, due to not being able to cope with the ever rising taxes. The Old are getting their Pensions shorted while the pension age rises to 67 years of age. The laws are multiplying and are getting more and more confusing, plus restraining the freedom of the people by the year. This leads to desperation and the ...more

I think it's mainly the people that make Germany bad. Most of them are arrogant and rude, and have a nasty and snobbish way of dealing with things. They can also be quite selfish. Trust me, I unfortunately know quite a few Germans, and I, and lots of other people, know what they can be like

They don't care about each other. Harsh, silent, sad lobotomized people.

Germany is a great country and I am Polish!

This territory should not be under Albanian/NATO rule. Crime rate is high, the Serbs are being treated terribly, etc.

This land would be MUCH better off back under full Serb rule.

At least Kosovo actually means something special to the Serbs.

This is horrible poor and not even aloud to compete in Olympics

Peace is for the people in Kosovo an unknown word.

I live in Finland now. People are calm, you feel really secured. Everyone is polite. All people are respected, mothers have a lot of benefits, disabled people are threated with special care. Almost everyone speaks English, you can always ask for a help, and people will actually help you. Very clean, pure environment, great!

I like to come there to look for a job.. I live in Poland now but my heart is telling me move to Finland but I don't known how cost of living over there

Government is the worst and there is no point to go work anymore.

Maybe you should get your facts right because Finland (along with New Zealand) are the least corrupt places on earth. - Squirrel719

This is THE worst country in the world and it should be on number 1. People suck, people are stupid and retarded there, they hate everything in the world and the only people to not be friends with. This country sucks and you need to be a drug adict, killer, to act like tough guy, to do crimes and to bully everyone and to beat up children, kids and other people to have friends and girlfriend. There aren't even medicines to buy here, everything is filthy, everyone is filthy here, rats walk everywhere, full of garbage, public transportation is THE worst here, when you enter in a bus or tram it smells like someone peed on in it, vehicles are full of names written on the walls and on the roof, people spit infront of you when you walk along the street, everyone yells here speeks loudly, bullies everyone, people and parents abuse children a lot. People in this " country " trust bad people and bad children more than the good children. Nobody respects kids and joung people. They are ...more

It's beautiful but the people are poorer and the rich just steal. An average person there has a small pay and in other countries like Germany and Sweden where the pay is higher you will feel rich visiting there

Irish people are nice and friendly people I live there so take it from my view it is a AWESOME COUNTRY full with stuff to like fairs to theme parks nice restaurants cafes pretty parks NICE architecture sure the bills are a bit high and some litter. Also crimes pretty low

Unfriendly? Compared to who? Or what? Ireland is one of the friendliest, if not THE friendliest countries on the planet. Do not begin to tell me that the english are any friendlier, because that would be politically incorrect and extremely false. Plus, the english have always opressed it's surrounding countries, so ireland can thank your violent and opressive country for all they have done to the irish eceonomy. Many have lived peasant lives due to England's abuse of power and aggressive behavior of their government. Who would even dare to talk about Ireland OR Scotland like that? Afterall, England signifficantly contributed to their innocently poor population. Another word you mentioned was 'fat'. Please define 'fat' for me. England has been and always will be a fatter and more obese country than ireland. Next to the fattest country on this planet (U. S), England is following close behind, while not even recognizing their overall health. God save the english!

Its history is really irrelevant man, in my humble opinion Ireland is a bleak, boring place, full of stuck-up, ignorant, dull (and most often than not drunk) people, which makes for one of the last places I'd ever want to live in (definitely the last in Europe). Even Scotland is more interesting with its landscapes and cheerful, friendly folk

You people IRELAND IS THE AWESOMEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD AMERICA IS LAZY, GREEDY AND NOT NICE Ireland loves everyone don't listen to those other coments

I am Polish and I have to say I love Irish people and Ireland!
