Best European Countries to Live In

The Top Ten

1 France 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 more.

France is for my family and me, the best country we found to install our home, in France you will find everything you want due to its large diversity due to its specific multiculturalism, you can live in a a cute stone house of the middle ages to a perfect modern architect's villa, you can eat a food from everywhere as well as their famous food you need to discover recipes and take your time as they are so numerous, France is the temple of any kind of meat served with so many sauces and cooking variants depending of your taste, Ocean fish, complex recipes and of course pastries and bread. The country side is really relax, we live now at 40 km from a large city, near Atlantic Ocean coast, and less than 3 hours by train to Paris or Lyon and 1 hour to Bordeaux and easy to reach Spain by car. France is now our sweet home, for me as Computer scientist, I had no difficulty to find a job there in this branch. We decided to stay here as long as possible, concerning attacks in our region we ...more

We are now living in South-West part of France, it's just wonderful, everything here is art, and the life style is so cool. Food is extraordinary, excellent, many splendid villages, castles. Atlantic coast, landscape and people are on top. Healthcare is one of the best, you call the doctor which come home soon after and paying such a small fee, amazing country. Vive la France!

I only visited France twice but I really want to move from usa to France. I loved Avignon area.

"FRANCE MEANS BEAUTY! In Spite of the big changes I think it's people should return back to their nationalistic identities... It's all what the world made fall in love with the French...

2 Germany 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. more.

I spent time in Germany when I was younger and studied German in high school and college. I love how pretty Germany is. I like the people too, they are very hard working and caring. The food is good, there is just so many good things about Germany.

Germany and Japan is awesome. Live strong. - SuperSaiyen312

I live here since the 00's and it is clean, well-managed and friendly (outside of those crazy parts in the East). The food is great, the public transport, healthcare and education system is great, it's centrally located, so you can visit all of Europe from here, and the weather is lovely and mild. Germany has everything from beaches to mountains. Just make sure you learn the language! Otherwise you will have a hard time getting a good job!

I love cars so I love germany

3 Switzerland 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 . more.

Most peaceful, beautiful, and homely country on the face of the earth. Great people, great views, and great chocolate.

I live in Switzerland and it's actually the best country to live in!

I lived in Lugano, Switzerland for a while. Very expensive but beautiful. I want to go back.

They have very good toblerone

4 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

I am Swedish and I realize that I'm lucky. Growing up in the 70's we had a socialist democratic government which provided excellent free health care, great school system, T.V. that focused on quality and so on and so forth. After school we went to "leisure clubs" where there was free pony riding, trips to museums and surfing, like ALL FREE! So anyone who hates socialism... Yes Sweden was socialist and it was pretty damned good.

Yeah we yearned for Disney cartoons (they were broadcasted like twice a year), we had wet dreams about hamburgers... If you were really lucky you could get a hold of a pair of REAL Levi's jeans, instead of the corny Swedish brand...

But you know, my childhood was FINE. It was equal. And now that has changed. Ok it's still fairly equal in a global perspective but the gaps between the classes have broadened and that once so fine and stable social security system is falling apart, slowly. Private health insurances, income differences... A ...more

Beautiful country, great standard of living. Worked there for one summer, found the people to be extremely friendly, open minded, and tolerant. The whole country is kept very clean and tidy, you'll hardly ever see graffiti or litter. The Swedes are hard working but have a great balance between work and leisure, with a very sizeable part of the population playing sports on a regular basis, they are generally very health conscious. There is also a lot of space around nine million people in a country nearly three times the size of the UK which has nearly sixty five million tells you all you need to know.

Absolutely amazing country! They have one of the best welfare systems in the world, awesome scenery like their lakes and forests, great at Eurovision, top human rights, kind (also gorgeous) people, low crime rate and an overall very good atmosphere. Sure, it may seem a bit dull because it's so peaceful and the people can be intimidating at first, but it should be in the top 5!

5 Spain 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.

What the hell is Spain doing down here and England or the Czech Republic up there? The food, the weather, the cost of living, the landscapes and the quality of life in general is way better than most countries in Europe. Spain should definitely be on the top 3.

Spain is sucks, there are too many comunists for Spain to be in fourteenth place for the best country, I think spain should be in the top three for the worst country, you also need to go to the hospital for more than a week, spain is hell for everything, you don't even get enough money for traveling, and why do the people that work the best get the least amount of money, seriously, and why do the people that work the most amount of money, and why does a policeman get more money than a doctor, that does not even happen in china, the king of comunists, I think spain should be in the top three for the worst countries to live in, and number one spot for the king of communists

Canary Islands have a near perfect climate and the cost of living is cheap.

The best country ever!

6 Belgium Belgium Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a country in Western Europe bordered by France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg. A small and densely populated country, it covers an area of 30,528 square kilometers (11,787 square miles) and has a population of more than 11 million.

Excellent healthcare and education and easy to travel to neighbouring London/Amsterdam/Paris

Best healthcare system in the world.
Most peaceful place according to survey.
One of the best education systems worldwide.
Amazing public transport

Not the most beautiful country (but most of the cities are really really nice) but it's the best to live, normal weather, life isn't expensive but not cheap, no guns, abortion is legal, gay marriage is legal, nice and warm
People, there's beaches and mountain and forests

Belgium small but amazing! Such a beautiful architecture in Brussels, food, and I love their football team they derserved to win! People are really kind and funny

7 Denmark 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.

Denmark is famous for having the most contented people and happiest communities in Europe. Why is not higher up the list. Why is France even on the list, is like a third world country to live in.

That's good what you did to Denmark

Denmark has very high life quality. People have high equality, even if they are foreigners. High salary and world best social system.

This country should be way higher on this list! It has the 5th best quality of life in the world and it is happiest country!

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

Absolutely dreadful place to live - ridiculously expensive, dirty, poor public services, health cuts, overcrowded, taxation is ludicrous for what we get for it. Absolutely NOT a place I want to live in any more.

Quite a tidy country, moderate weather, beautiful countryside, strong economy and strong military.

Also in England you are entitled to free medical care (including free GP visits) and also schooling for up to 18s is completely free. England has Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College and UCL which are world renowned universities.

London is a city of opportunities, with paths for almost any career. London is filled with rich history and beautiful monuments. London is a massive city, but travel is efficient and very cheap thanks to the London Underground.

We have a low crime rate too.

I feel that England is a country where it is truly comfortable to live. England is tidy and well maintained, but above all, a country with a future.

I've lived in the UK my whole adult life and it doesn't deserve to be at the top of the list. My partner is British and I love him dearly, but I do not recommend anyone to live here and he agrees.

The UK is only G7 country with continuously increasing levels of inequality since the beginning of the century. It definitely shows in all of the rural areas with poor level of education and development. Taxation is insane, the less you earn the more you pay. Tax haven of the world for corporations though.

Environment is nothing to be excited about either, despite of being one of the earliest member of the EU, they are still just learning the basics of recycling, leaving majority of the streets incredibly dirty, especially in the cities.

University education is something to be excited about, but is ridiculously expensive. Benefits have been stopped behind the closed door too, making it impossible for poorest students to attend. Nothing to rave about, since you can get it ...more

Tax is a problem. over populated to many people on the bus time to get sorted on immigration. time to put your own people ist.roads are rubbish

9 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's current prime minister is more.

I was born British and hope to die British. It's a pity that I'm now told I'm English when I would rather be British. I love the whole of my country not just England.

UK AND England / Wales etc in the same list? Don't confuse the poor Americans...

I'm Canadian and every time I go to this beautiful country I am so impressed at the history and beauty of all sorts of cities from London to Liverpool, Cardiff to Caerphilly.

Used to be a great place to live but now their government became really dumb and now their government doesn't even allow police to chase criminals and allowed crime to explode this year.-DarkBoi-X

10 Norway Norway Norway, 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.

Friendly people, always helpful, felt super safe, how can this be number 20?!

Beautiful country, nice people. That makes a combination for a number one country. How is the 23? It deserves to be at least in the top ten.

It is super safe, super nice climate, and super nice nature. The people are nice, and the food is just awesome.

I am Norwegian and I have been living in Germany for four years right now and I still think that Norway has a better infrastructure

11 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.

Really how is Iceland not in the top 10 Iceland is a very beautiful and peaceful country very clean very very very low crime rate lots and lots of freedom so Iceland I am awesome place to live one of the best places to live

I am seriously stunned. Please tell me how this is not in the top 10? - Joansb

Amazing country and people in every way. It would be a dream to live there. The climate is perfect and those icelandic horses are like an image from a fairy tale.

Iceland should be on the top of this list, I'm not being offensive or racist to Germans but Iceland is the safest country in the world and its even wealthier.
I would like to live in Iceland but I think that Iceland is not on top because of their cold weather every single day!

But Iceland has a low population and it's a quiet place.But in Germany you can't deal with how many people live in there,especially Berlin.

12 Finland Finland

Clean air, clean food, healthy lifestyle and a lot of 'common sense'. Amazing design talent especially in architecture and product design. Finns have a unique sense of humor. I am Finnish but not living in Finland at the moment. I really miss all the four seasons and swimming in clean waters. Only downside I can think of is how racist some people can be, even when I lived there got some racist comments towards myself despite being 100% white Finnish but with a little bit different looks. This I think is down to people still getting used to different lifestyles and nationalities. Would love to move back though..

Finland have the best education in the world and it is clean

Finnish people are so nice and honest. Weather is so cool

Saunas. Saunas everywhere.

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

Scotland is far greater than England and should be placed very high in this list, lets get some facts straight -

Free Higher education, with grants to poorer students (something England does not offer)
Free Prescriptions
Some of the best Universities on the planet (5 of the top in the world)
The best Economy in all of the UK, low unemployment
The Scottish government has mitigated cuts to public services and welfare, that was imposed by the UK
A Booming renewables industry and we also have a great oil Industry
Fordable housing market and if your renting the government has recently put caps on the private sector.
not to mention breathtaking landscapes, the friendlies people on the planet
! I love my country!

Super friendly and social people and beautiful nature. Great bars, people of all ages go night out. Free universities! I love Scotland!

14 Poland Poland Poland, officially the Republic of Poland, is a country in Central Europe, bordered by Germany to the west; the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the south; Ukraine and Belarus to the east; and the Baltic Sea, Kaliningrad Oblast (a Russian exclave) and Lithuania to the north. With a population of approximately more.

The only safe place in Europe nowadays, just because of this racism and intolerance, which you criticise. There is no terrorism in Poland, there are almost no LGBT and animal-rapers parades eighter. This is just fine for me, and if I only could I would move there, to Poland. I'm done of all those shootings, acts of terrorism and deviations happening in western Europe ( I'm actually living in Italy, and believe me, I know what I'm saying). When I first visited Poland I was suprised, that it looks really fine, even better than in Italy, everything is clean and safe, buildings and streets looks nice, there are many trees and parks everywhere, prices are really low compared to those italian, unemployment rate is relatively lower and salaries are even comparable. I'm voting for it.

Beautiful place, great people, low cost of living, very nice overall.

Poland is a great place, people are warm and welcoming, low cost of living and great landscapes to enjoy, it's a hidden gem!

Stablilty at it's finest. Poland is a very stable country. It is very safe to roam the streets at night and the Police are very proffecional. As a Spanish person I would definitely recommend moving there in order to work or to study in one of their beautiful unviersities, in the medieval cities.

15 Portugal Portugal Portugal (est.1152), officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country located mostly on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is the westernmost country of mainland Europe, bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain. Its territory also includes more.

Beautiful and varied climate, nice people (very respectful and honest with their feelings), great food, peaceful, very little racism, no terrorism, vendors are very honest and don't rip off tourists even when given ample opportunity (I would deliberately try to overpay by pretending not to be familiar with the currency, and they'd always correct me and give me the correct change.), Responsible for Ronaldo, Nani, Nelly Furtado, Jose Mourinho, Tom Hanks, etc... Great wines and very inexpensive. The people are humble - they don't know how great their country is and always down play it. Consequently, most people have no idea what Portugal has contributed to the rest of the world because Portuguese people are not show-offs. Unlike the Italians whom have the habit of taking credit for other cultures' ideas and inventions. Uggghh.

I think Portugal is a beautiful place to live. I've been there before and thinks it's very calm and peaceful.

Amazing food, amazing culture, amazing scenery, AMAZING PORTUGAL! Language can be difficult to understand in the beginning but you'll pick it up. Cost of living is cheap but on the downside, the wages are lousy.

Gorgeous country and highly underrated! With it's beautiful beaches, great food, and interesting history I find it a better destination spot than Brazil or other romance language speaking countries!

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

Green, Clean, Hardworking people, and friendly people to. A country that received much abuse and survived. Ireland for the win!

Nice people, green, and a country that survived many years of abuse. Irish people are very hard workers. Ireland for the win!

Ireland has everything, its developed as a first world country yet isn't over crowded and dirty like england is becoming. Lots of green, lovely people, life revolves around music and booze, what could be a better place!?

I was born in the southern a Dublin and I have to say it is so beautiful and free that I think it has to be on first or second

Beautiful rural areas, although in my opinion less developed than England

More Castles than StarBucks

19 Netherlands Netherlands

I mean legal weed! Come on! And our social system is one of the best! So is our school system. The people here are world open and very kind

Netherlands is the best place to live in Europe if you are non European because Dutch people are the least racist and most fair in comparison to other nations in Europe.
But in general I think Germany is the best country in Europe if you are German.

This should 100% be above the UK, France, Poland, Spain, Czech Republic and Germany. Research also proved that The Netherlands is ONE OF THE BEST countries in the ENTIRE world to live in. It is extremely safe and peaceful here.

20 Austria Austria Austria was Celtic (Hallstadt) then as Noricum, part of the Roman Empire, Alaric, who took over Rome, studied at a monastery near Vienna. In the Middle Ages, the Holy Roman Emperors moved to Vienna, then Austria became separate. Medieval documents from Eastern Europe as far as West Ukraine were often more.

The heart of Europe should be at least top 5. Very clean, friendly people combined with amazing nature that makes you think you are in the garden of Eden.

Clean and beautiful. The only problem is in Vienna people still smoke in cafes. So even though it is an amazing place. The smoking thing would reduce my quality of life so I couldn't live there.

So I don't know if Austria is good to live in so it's in the most cleanest countries in the world right so I am gonna check it out

We have one of the best medical systems

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

I wouldn't mind waking up to sunny weather and pretty landscapes every day rather that the moodiness and rain of my country..

Greece is a magnificent country. Despite the crisis, greeks know how to have fun. In Greece the sun is always shining. It has beautiful beaches and spectacular landscapes to see. Greece's seas are very safe due to the absence of sharks and other dangerous species. The costs of living in Greece are really down compared with most European countries. I've lived in Greece forever and I wouldn't change her for anything

Really nice weather, excellent quality of food, best beaches, variety of places!

Yes, I guess the economy is pretty bad, but that’s beside the point. It is home to some really kind people and has wonderful weather

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

If you want to live in a country rich in culture then Italy is hands down the best country. I am surprised it's at number 15. Italian cities are among the most beautiful cities in the world and the people are always friendly. There are tons of activities to do, you can literally go skiing and then go to some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world on the same day. The food and climate is ideal, especially in the south. There are pretty large expat communities in bigger cities.

To be fair, Italy's infrastructure and services are not the best although they are improving. The streets are full of potholes and the outskirts of big cities are generally ugly and badly built. The public transportation systems in big cities are not as good as other EU cities because every time they dig they find ancient Roman and ancient Greek stuff. Add this to the bad local administration. The south, while arguably more beautiful, is much poorer than the north, mainly due to the state government's ...more

No country is perfect, but Italy has a great deal to offer. From amazing friendly people, deep history and lovely architecture, to varied climates and splendid scenery, and yes delicious food aplenty, Italy is hard to beat. It's also one of the most scooter/motorcycle friendly places in Europe. The language isn't terribly complicated to learn either. Come to Italy, you will not regret it!

Without doubt the best place to live in world. Italy has everything, culture, architecture, food, fashion, art and the most beautiful people in the world. The complete opposite of the United Kingdom

How is Italy not in the top 5? Lots of history, culture, and has one of the most beautiful areas in the world!

It has an area of 238,391 square kilometres and a temperate-continental climate. With over 19 million inhabitants, the country is the seventh-most-populous member state more.

A country blessed with gorgeous nature and landscapes, from beaches with cool summer vibes to mountain peaks and great ski resorts. People are friendly and welcoming, always willing to help. Very vibrant big cities with bustling night life, lots of things to do, lots of big multinationals have put their base here. One of the best internet connections worldwide. Low rentals and low cost of living.

Romania is very nice country especially the people, very religious. Pray is their conversation to God. They always go to church everyday and praise God. I have a boyfriend there, I'm too excited to marry him.

Amazing Country! Super friendly people, gorgeous nature. The idilic country life, real organic food, earth that has never seen pesticides, simplicity and slow pace of life, one feels close to god in a peaceful land like this. This country it's poetic.

It is an amazing country. One of the most peaceful and enjoyable places in Europe. The people are very welcoming and in adition to this, you can live a life with all of the luxuries you can get anywhere else in the world!

29 Lithuania Lithuania

Beautiful country, good food. Relaxed lifestyle. All that you can have when on holiday, though more difficult to reach when you live there, as salaries are low.

People are sucks, they hate each other not to talk of foreign. Please don't come here. They are far behind.

Beautiful country: amazing neo-gothic and baroque architecture, amazing nature with fields, lakes, forests and seaside. Small population makes it incredibly peaceful and clean. A lot of history to observe and to learn.

One of the highest education levels amongst Europeans. The new generation speaks 3 languages, Lithuanian, English and Russian, fluently, at least in the capital Vilnius.

Living standards are not great, wages are amongst lowest in the EU, making it difficult to live in Lithuania permanently. But fairly cheap for a holiday.

A lot to be achieved for further integration, such as dual nationality and LGBT rights. Also, very few foreigners to be seen, but you can tell them apart if they are smiling.

Overall, a beautiful country that deserves a bit more recognition.

I live here. Some people are very nice, and some...well...pretty aggresive. But its culture, etnographic regions, its food, its history is just amazing( unlike USA's *nerd laugh* ). A lot of people are poor. They even go to Poland to shop for cheaper. Weather is like in GB, but in Lithuania's summer it rains less and is more sunny than GB's. Overall it's a great country with minuses and pluses.

Beautiful friendly people, amazing food, cheap cigarettes, amazing food... I know I said twice but is because is so yummy and cheap... Greats landscapes and delicious fruits and vegetables...

The small villages are like a beautiful house paradise of course this must be valued as average country to live in my opinion since they are still rebuilding from the yugoslavia war.

Wonderful weather, warm people, very good nature, Amazingly various food culture and its not expensive. Very nice. I love it

Turkey isn't even European. There is a reason Turks aren't considered European. Only a small part of Turkey is in Europe. So technically this shouldn't be in the list - SirSkeletorThe3rd

34 Estonia Estonia

Estonia is awful country to live in for longer periods if you are a struggling family/person or if you want to start some business. The taxes and prices are becoming more overwhelming year by year, the 2019 will be the worst of them all. The government doesn't care about their youth or elderly and there is a big reason why most young people do not work in Estonia but prefer to leave the country after finishing their studies. It is nearly impossible to find a good living place especially in cities when living alone and the prices for real estate go higher and higher.

When it comes to Nature, for a eastern-northern country Estonia has its beauties and places to visit but the landscape is rather flat and boring if you look for something big, special or extreme. If you do love peaceful and quiet nature in general, you will be pleased. If you come from south you will not like Estonian climate, summers can be too hot with nothing to breathe and through later months its very cold and ...more

Wonderful people! Felt safe as a woman by myself being here.

I agree, I feel safe here.
