These nations are the most beautiful and most glorious of Europe, and the World.
The Top Ten
1 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

So fascinating and diversified country, do not hesitate to go outside Paris and French Riviera, in the country side.

The food are so various and delicious, each region has is own architecture(s), dishes, traditions, cultures, accents..

And also there are the famous French Polynesia and so many other Islands that make France one of the most fabulous country to visit and for this diversity and biodiversity; Imagine that part of Amazon is a French department, we have been there it's more than wonderful.

But most of people do not know this hidden and not enough known parts of France, maybe better like that to preserve such treasures...

Why France is one of the most beautiful country:

Major part of people does know at all or just a 0.1% of what is really France, French people included..

Lots of different landscapes, architectures, more than 36 000 villages and cities, lots of different cultures etc...

Famous for its food, gastronomy, for its History (for the best and worst), its known thousands of castles (e.G. châteaux of the Loire Valley),

Its river network (the first in Europe), ski area (the largest in Europe) etc..

Among the most beautiful beaches in the world, because of many Islands and territories like:

- Part of Amazonia (French Guyanne),

- French Polynesia with about 120 among the most beautiful Islands (Pacific Ocean),

- New Caledonia, with among the largest and most beautiful coral reefs and beaches in the Pacific Ocean and so in the world.

- French Caribbean with various known islands (Atlantic Ocean),

- Reunion, Mayotte are splendid ...more

No doubt France deserves to be number 1 for lot of reasons, it's difficult for another country to gather so many attractive things, France reaches the top in major fields. I am a fan and also fan of Portugal, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Norway, Scotland...

Yes, definitively one of the most beautiful country in the world. Only New Caledonia alone as part of France is among he most beautiful island of the whole world.
And sure that Corsica is the most beautiful Mediterranean island.

2 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

When you see beautiful images of charming little hilltop towns, it’s usually a photo of a beautiful Italian village.


Italian is by far the most gorgeous and beautiful country in Europe. There’s a wide selection of biomes such as mountains, plains and hills, a different style of architecture depending on where you are in Italy and a nice way to experience Italian traditions, history and cooking.


It’s amazing how you can go across Italy and it feels like a country made up of smaller countries as every part of Italy is different in its own little way. I find it interesting how you can encounter so many different dialects in only one country which shaped the Italian language as we know it.

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 nothing beautiful, scenery without any interest, architecture, nasty people, not various food, understandable noisy language...

But all the rest is worse.

This country is absolutely overrated.
From North to South and West to East, the landscapes are so monotonous as well as the architectures of houses and of course the food, old fashioned restaurants are only serving same food from pasta to pizza or pizza to pasta.
But at least you can visit some ruins, because the beaches are so crowded, private and dirty...

What a stupid comments...I can explain some of these bulls you wrote, migrants has no work? Oh, yes many of them because they don't want to work and our state is so idiot and will pay them for doing nothing :) Italian food and wine is best on the world its known fact, Italian culture is so different from region to region and is so old, we have more than 2500 years of culture art, literature... we brought culture to the western Europe either it were romans or Renaissance! Northern Italy is one of the richest regions of Europe with great economic centres like Milano or Turin! someone wrote" landscapes are so monotonous" haha, we have highest mountains in Europe-the Alps, beautiful cities full of art-Rome, Venice, Florentia... ancient culture sites-Romans, Etrurians, Greeks. Perfect wine from Tuscany Piemont and Friuli, small elegant villages, we are legends of cinematography (Cinecitta...), we are the land of latin culture and language! Only Greeks, Spanish or French people ...more

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

Greece is the word! Miss Santorini with its beautiful cliffs and breathtaking scenery, Mykonos with the wonderful architecture and nightlife, Zakynthos with those impressive beaches (Navagio oh, my God! ), Athens with the amazing hippie atmosphere and the wonderful monuments and museums. The delicious food, the friendly people, the amazing architecture... Greece may be the paradise itself... Miss you Greece!

Greece has a rare beauty that combines beatiful beaches, mountains, woods and of course breath taking monuments.. I'm enlish and I'm really wondering how the UK is higher in this list than Greece, really, laugh out loud.

Greece has beautiful beaches, mountains, woods, hills, houses, cities, food, hotels, beauty, girls and A LOT OF MORE! It shouldn't be #6...

Greece definitively the most beautiful Mediterranean country, not at all Italy, so Greece should be above Italy.

4 Germany Germany 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.

Germany is the fairyland in Europe - unbelievably many castles and palaces, the Alps, the Black Forest and the Eiffel region. The beaches in the north are fascinating. In addition, there is the Fairytale Road, the Castle Road and the legendary Romantic Road. The cities are both modern and old and are very different, unlike the cities in Italy which are very similar. Incredible quality of life and infrastructure. Germany's economy comes mainly from industry, they don't attach much importance to tourism, yet Germany is among the top 10. But the people who come then enjoy the best service. In France or Italy it is full of tourists, you will never have a coffee or a beer in peace. The beer in Germany is the best and with the festivals it is a unique experience.

There is no better country in the world than Germany!

We have beaches good or even better then most exotic paradises and some really suggestive mountains.

If you're interested in history you just have to look around a bit and you can find traces of thousand of years of history.

And last but not least the food is fresh, healthy and the taste is unique in the world.

And we have really more

More beautiful for sure than Italy, south Europe is what you know.
Germany has a great culture with so many magnificence provided by wonderful cities from middle age to the highest modernity you can expect, come to discover the German unique landscapes and food you will savor and not only eat.

Germany should take France's rank. Surely France is beautiful but not as beautiful as Germany.

5 England England, previously the Kingdom of England, is a constituent country of the United Kingdom along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. ...read more.

England is a beautiful country. As a French person I admire them. Their landscapes, coasts, beaches, historic houses, gardens, etc are to die for and the way they keep their heritage organised should be admired by the world. England is a land of green landscapes, ancient woodlands, coats, villages, etc. And the land of scientists, engineers, queens, kinds, poets, writers, etc.

I'm always going to put dear old England first. It's not know as the 'green and pleasant land' for nothing. What's more beattiful (apart from London) than a little country pub, little villages, cricket matches in the sunshine? England has my heart and soul. Sing it if you will... "There'll always be an England, and England shall be free..."

I'll vote for England even though I'm American well because first of all, I would be stupid to put America on this list, and second I've been to England about two times before, and it is a very beautiful country indeed.

Actually..People all over the world would like to visit England much more than any other country, and for most of them it's like a dream visiting UK.

6 Spain Spain, 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.

12th? With Sweden, Germany and Poland ahead? I mean I get it a lot of people travelling to spain travel to pretty dull places with just the purpose of getting some sun. But seriously Spain should be at least in top 5, with it's so varied landscapes like seriously okey you like Ireland sure its beautiful for its green lush fields and celtic culture. But guess what Spain has exactly that along the northern atlantic coast, like seriously the landscapes are like Ireland (but with amazing white sanded long beaches). And then you combine that with the mediterreanean coast, and the landscapes of the south from everything to Sierra nevadas 3500 meters mountain range to deserts. Then you add the pyrenees mountains and all other mountain ranges plus the ballearic islands and the canary islands you have pretty much all climate zones a country could have. That is what makes this country so outstanding its diversity, SPAIN HAS EVERYTHING GUYS, STOP GOING TO DULL PLACES LIKE BENIDORM AND ACTUALLY ...more

Italy, Germany and Poland are first?

For Germany ok, but Italy and Poland come on, compared to Spain is the first for tourism country in the world... And for the beauty: Scotland, Sweden, Frence, Iceland and so... Are much much better...

Gosh! If someone thinks that Spain should not be the first is because is crazy.

I am not from there and I think it should be in the top 10

7 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard. ...read more.

Easily the most beautiful country in Europe. Norway is very safe, clean, and rich; the people are really kind and fun as well. Its countryside has gorgeous fjords and mountains that offer a majestic view. Its Northern Lights are attractive as well. All in all, Norway is a truly awesome country to visit.

By far the most beautiful country in Europe, mountains, fjords, forests, rivers, nothern lights...

Norway is way more beautiful than Sweden.

Fjords, 'enough said

This is my home country and in it there are many things to do. As well as it being enjoyable and , well everything good!

7? Should be 50. Nice cities, shame about the rest!

Nice mountains, a lot of lakes, pretty beaches, medieval castles (like Malbork Castle), amazing cities like Cracow, Gdansk or Wroclaw and good architecture (for example Philharmonic Hall in Szczecin is the best building 2015 - the winner of Mies van der Rohe Award) - it's simply beautiful country

I'm greek but I really love Portugal, it should be higher. Have you people visited porto, lisbon, coibra etc. ?

It should be higher

18 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. ...read more.

Apparently a lot of people here include culture as part of beauty. When I think beauty, I think natural landscapes... If we're talking about natural landscapes, the Swiss Alps easily win.

They seem to be the only European country that has avoided every major war since the 1700s.

It shoul be at number 1. I don't any other country is as beautiful as this

This list is switzerland should be number two

21 Denmark Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Europe. The southernmost of the Nordic countries, it is south-west of Sweden and south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany.

I love the fact that I am Danish and if anyone ever tells you it is bad, they clearly haven't been there. it has a wonderful countryside and the cities are all wonderful.

Greenland and Faroe Island are beautiful, but Denmark is pretty dull (nature wise)

Flat and always amazing, I'm proud to be a Dane

Its capital city is Zagreb. It is a member of the European Union. During the Cold War it was part of Yugoslavia. It is a cultural ...read more.

Beautiful Adriatic coast and islands with historic towns, Venetian architecture at its best and palm tree lined-waterfronts. Then there is the Pannonian plain in the north with Austro-Hungarian architecture and its own charms. All of the country is very clean.

One of the best countries in Europe and in the world, I DEFINITELY, HIGHLY recommend that you go visit Croatia and it's regions such as Istria, Dalmatia, and Slavonia. Cities such as Split, Rovinj, Dubrovnik and Zagreb are pictures of beauty. I'm not just saying this because I'm Half-Croatian and Half-Italian, but ask people who are not Croatian and you will see that they would say the same thing.

So underrated. Heck, Zadar won Europes best destination award 2016. We also have ranked cleanest beaches and cleanest water. Best place on Earth if you ask me.

Safe, clean, english on high level, beautiful beaches. amazing!
