The Top Ten

1 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. ...read more.

I am sick of all of this "why is Germany on this list, it's full of Nazi descendants who must be killed" bull because,

1) 95% of the war-criminals (Nazis) are dead or have been sentenced to life imprisonment at 80+ years.

2) The current population is NOT to blame for the putrid crimes committed in the 2nd world war which occurred 77 years ago, people treat them poorly for things they nor their parents have ever done.

3) The country is so beautiful and the people are so nice. I visited Germany for 5 days a little bit over 2 weeks ago and it was truly spectacular. And trust me when I say that the current Germans feel extremely guilty over the things they haven't done which occurred in the past, the fact is that is was 1 evil man's fault who wasn't even German. He manipulated and blackmailed his very own nation into committing crimes after he rose to power. And Germans face a large amount of racism due to WW2. I am a quarter German and whenever I reveal my ...more

Germany is full of racist people. Due to past experience, my mother's cousin used to be a taxi driver in Berlin. Whenever he would pick up a passenger, the passenger would immediately come forth to the taxi and start yelling and cursing. Most of the times the passengers would not even pay! German people certainly do not welcome foreigners, so if your ancestry is not from Germany, or if you do not appeal to look German to them, then do not go to Germany. Try the delightful France instead. The Eiffel Tower is the most beautiful until its highest peak! - PatriciaN

I spent one month this summer with Germany as the main place I stayed at. From there I traveled to Ireland (love it), Austria (pretty nice) and Amsterdam (very dirty, so many drug addicts, garbage everywhere because city no longer picks it up as its gone privatized, so many of the businesses can't afford regular garbage scheduled services, but the shopping on Kalverstraat is awesome and Napolean's Residence is cool).
In all of my travels I constantly amazed and proud to be in Germany (my first trip and I am German decent living in Canada). I love how the upkeep of very old beautiful buildings are, loved Rothenburg, Wurzburg, Regenburg and Nuremberg are kept up. Love, love, love Potsdam, Berlin and Munich. I visited many castles and loved it. I love the modern buildings and infrastructure in Berlin. I always knew I would feel like this was "second home" to me, very happy to have German descendant blood in me. Thanks dad!

Stop talking about Jesus-many during World War II! Talk about today.

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...

Vive la France!

Everybody knowns that France is a marvelous country.

The best way of life

Paris truly is a nice city

From an Indian resident and Japanese lover this is my favorite country of Europe. This country is amazing with their food.

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

Italy is wonderful. People are so friendly and nice and the lifestyle is so beautiful. I love Italy so much. I'm from the US and honestly, I like Italy better. Best country EVER.

There is always a hate comment about Italy on the lists on this site, and I can tell that they're all from the same person - Kast

If you want to be stolen and not by foreign immigrants, no by aboriginal, go there.
They drive like crazy, they never say hello, the cities are old and dirty, It smells sewers everywhere. Impossible to find a restaurant which is not Italian.
Hotels are really low quality and extremely expensive.
Be careful with policemen, they do not like foreigners, they arrest you and make mess.
Nobody in this country speaks something else than Italian.
It's a very old and boring country.
And for the beaches they are all private or full of rubbishes.

And for visiting only ruins, when it's possible to visit because of continuous strikes.
Escape to other countries around, it's close and really more funny.

Most beautiful cities and landacapes + best cuisine in the world

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

Every school day since I can remember, I woke up, got dressed and packed my bag for school, walked out the door to be covered in rain, smelling cow crap from my neighbours farm, then get in a car and drive on a badly made road in the middle of nowhere until I get to the city which is half the time busy, and half the time empty. When school is finished, I go home on the same roads in the same rainy conditions and do my homework. Then I go to bed and start the whole thing again the next day, and I absolutely love it.

Definitely the best place in the world! Although I'm English, I actually prefer Ireland. the nightlife during summertime is awesome!

Lovely country with friendly people and great pubs. Beautiful scenery along the West.

Ireland is my favorite place in the world. That's saying something. - Beatlesboy9

7 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.

Love Spain, great cities, great heathcare system and great way of life and really hard working people. Love the weather and the nature but cities are amazing, really! Way bigger and cooler than Finnish cities, but I also think Finland should be up in terms of quality life, not up from Spain but in this list

Popular, peaceful ( mind the bullfights )

I wish I was born in Spain, the sunny weather, the great healthcare system,the mountains and forest are amazing, and the cities are breathtaking. People are really open minded and creative, I love Spain

AWESOME QUALITY LIFE! The best!
