4 Johannesburg, South Africa
5 Washington, D.C., USA
6 Vatican City

Not funny. I'm a Catholic and I'm proud of it. Remove this offensive item off this list. - Turkeyasylum

I can't believe they don't have religious rights it's wrong to criticise ones religion - John2001

A city without women and only with catholic men in the government and all highest positions, how do you call that?
Vatican City is definitively not a democracy.

No religious rights there. - DethronedInFlorida

7 Moscow, Russia

The BEST city ever! Full of energy and love. Very safe and beautiful!

This should be number one my friends... too crowded city, full of bad people who want to rob you. Ugh

I used to live there for many years. Yes, Moscow is beautiful someplaces, yet it is way too overcrowded, stressful, hasty, and you can encounter a lot of boorishness from people there. Glad I'm not there anymore.

Magic beautiful wellcoming city! Winter is much warmer than I thought before I came there.

It's a living hell.

10 Toronto, Ontario, Canada Toronto, Ontario, Canada Toronto is the most populous city in Canada, the provincial capital of Ontario, and the centre of the Greater Toronto Area, the most populous metropolitan area in Canada.

Canada shouldn't be in the "worst" list of anything! Seriously! Some of the loveliest, friendliest, kindest people come from Canada and I'm pretty sure that's what makes Canada such a great country. - Britgirl

I've been to Los Angeles, Berlin, New York, Prague, and other great cities around the world. Lemme tell ya, I'll take Toronto over any of them. It's safer, cleaner, and friendlier. - PetSounds

I live here and there is nothing wrong in here. - SelfDestruct

Toronto is a beautiful city! Why is it on here? - MostTalented_BoyX

29 São Paulo, Brazil
30 Yangon, Myanmar
31 Tel Aviv
32 Dammam, Saudi Arabia Dammam, Saudi Arabia

Damman, yet so beutifull, is not a great city to live in. With not a lot of human rights, and very strict rules for woman, this may be quite stressful. Other bad factors include the heat, it can get above 50c in summer, and at minimum, 18c in winter! Their are often car crashes in this area and they are lethal, they often go skidding into the aquatic Saudi Sea.. - jmoss

33 Bangui, Central African Republic

Bangui is a horrible place. Full of drugged warlords and poor beggars, its not a place to be. It is very dangerous, you could get shot by a warlord. Hell on earth

34 Mogadishu, Somalia Mogadishu, Somalia

Imagine a city, filled with extremist bombers and rampant poverty. The threat of pirates off the coast and Al-Shabaab in the city centre looms. Welcome to Mogadishu.
