Top 10 Most Dangerous Countries In Europe


The Top Ten

1 Albania Albania Albania is a southeastern European country that is slightly larger than Maryland and near Montenegro, Kosovo, Republic of Macedonia, and Greece. The capital is a city called Tirana. Some other major cities in Albania are Durrës, Elbasan, Vlorë, and Shkodër. Albania gained its independence in 1912. more.

I am Albanian. I can undoubtedly say that most of the Albanians are inconsiderate and ignorant, possessing almost no civic education. They can't drive, can't speak or write coherently, have no self respect or self awareness and have extremely low standards and expectations. Tirana, the capital, is a hell hole, the product of a childish narcissistic mayor, now prime minister, where every space is occupied by buildings, creating the perfect labyrinth. It lacks public spaces, sidewalks, green spaces, road signs, and cars drive and park wherever they please. Whenever there's heavy rain there's flooding. People spend most of their time and money in cafes, gossiping and complaining about the government or other Albanians, while behaving the same way. Albanians love honking. They honk to salute, they honk when overtaking other cars, a couple of seconds before the traffic light turns green or just out of habit. If you live in a densely populated area, I suggest you use ear plugs, for there's ...more

U can't speak to anyone whom you don't know well because they may be wanting to kill you

The country where children are taught how to use a gun before they learn how to count lol

My experiences are... People who provoke without a reason sure there are nice people to but more who're provoking.

2 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

The population is slowly declining so yay

It's a corrupt country with a selfish leader. Since I'm Ukrainian, I'm not a big fan of the fact that Russia is trying to takeover Eastern Ukraine.

Russia. It's Corrupt, doesn't let the people choose their leaders, if you are against the government they jail you. Russia is like North Korea but it is slightly better, and every day Russia harms peace, bringing in soldiers to Ukraine and plans to annex belarus, and it invaded parts of Georgia - EhhhBarca

People, don't mess with Russians. I am Russian, I live in the U.S., but I am highly patriotic. A lot of us are. People say that Russia in general is like a bear - if you don't bother it, everything will be fine and peaceful, but if you do, you better watch out as it's going to defend itself and its territory. I agree that Russia is dangerous, but that's because the other countries annoy the bear.

3 Ukraine Ukraine Ukraine is a sovereign country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland and Slovakia to the west, Hungary, Romania, and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Actually the only really dangerous parts are the donetsk and luhansk oblasts plus Crimea. The rest of the country is generally safe - darthvadern

Chernobyl, anyone?

This is all because of russia guys,most of the news about ukraine is fake,and the war is started by russia

Ukraine a nutshell: Sasha, let's go back home! Oh wait, it got destroyed by shelling. Damn Ukrainians! - CobaltCards

4 Turkey Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, more.

I travelled once around Turkey. And I can say people are absolute maniacs, and of course not secular at all. Istanbul is the only city I would call "secular". But this doesn't remove, for example, horribly miseducated youth stalking blonde girls in the street or intruding in garages to steal the most expensive german cars. In the part of Anatolia most people are sympathizers of extreme Islamism and I couldn't say my religion nor my opinion about Turkey. Yes, that is true. It's actually the worst country I travelled to. I once got almost kidnapped too. I now can imagine how bad would be Middle East.

Since all that happened to me, I no longer consider Turkey as Europe, it is more similar to Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia than, for example, Greece.

The most hated place in europe

Lots of shooting and bombs in Istanbul and a couple of crimson Ankara.

It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful more.

War criminals, drug dealers, murderers, organ traffickers, car thieves, street fighters, arms traffickers & human traffickers: Welcome to Macedonia.

The Bulgarian, slavic Maskedonskija has nothing to do with Ancient Macedon, the fact that they believe otherwise makes them very dangerous.

I live here its not that bad the only bad thing here is that there's idots here

Too many drug dealers, more like every 5th person you see on the street.
In many towns it's peaceful but lacks police protection, you'll see people on bikes/cars driving at 200+ km/h on streets where there can be children playing. - Voksin

Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, more.

Terrible roads, houses that are falling down & miserable people..
It's got the lot!

Really is controlled by the mafia

Bulgaria is run by the mafia- true fact

Watch out when you decide to go in Bulgaria by car: THEY STEAL CARS! Bulgarians are no. 1 in Europe concerning car theft. Nothing unusual if you go to take a piss and find no car when you return. There is a car stealing mafia, organised and controlled in joint-venture with the local police. If you have no full-insurance, never visit Bulgaria with your car. Stolen cars in Bulgaria have been reported to be found in other parts of the world. They usually steal your car in minutes, disassembly it into pieces and then sell them on the black market. Bulgarians are not to be trusted. Watch out when you EAT in Bulgaria too: there have been reported numerous cases of alimentary toxic-infection all year round, but mostly during summer in beach resorts. It is a corrupt country full of burglars and desperate profit-digging people.

P.S. There is some good aspect too: Only in Bulgaria girls ask for 5-10 euros to offer oral sex. And I'm not talking about prostitutes.

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

Greeks are very violent people

Too hot. My mum has been. - JackLawler

Too many pickpockets. Possible robbery near Roma termini station and Naples. Many streets are very dangerous. The Italian police never try to help you if something happens.

Pickpockets everywhere, police is never helping or working...

Mafia everywhere but no one will tell you, too much afraid.

10 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

They are world champions in lying. Full of hate, especially towards Croatia.

Bloody Barbarians!

Serbia is a very nice and safe country to travel

Not a suprise, they have alwayas behaved like savages.

Nearly every city in britain has this problem

Murders and lots of Drugs everywhere not safe especially in big cities

14 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.

Terrorist atacks

Safe, reliable country. But the people are kind of a drag. I'm German and a lot of the people are turds. Like they have computer chips instead of brains. I guess that's why they are so techy.

15 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 good thing about Poland is the lack of islamic refugees. Everything else is bad. I am saying this as a Polish person.

16 Lithuania Lithuania

I am Lithuanian, too much crime. Beautiful nature and amazing food but a lot of Lithuanians are very ignorant and are not exactly the kindest people. It's just not safe here

There is also a lot of drug trafficking and robbery and more crime in the uk

Lithuania has one of the highest homicide rates in the European Union due to alcohol and mentality of people.

17 Netherlands Netherlands

I'm dutch and live in a small village I agree sure its safe but cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam might be more dangerous and some crime since it's a big city well duh but its safe in general atlas much safer than most eastern Europeans countries!

This country has one of the lowest crime rates in the whole world the worst thing you'll see is some kids not cleaning up their mess and I'm not even joking

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

Ireland isn't dangerous! Well it depends where you go, but it's mostly safe!

Murders and kidnapping very frequent missing people

Ireland has become very dangerous over the last 10 years mainly in city’s like Dublin Cork and Limerick due to drugs and increased crime rates there are people being robbed and murdered every day. It is very common for people as young as 13 to go missing and be found dead a few days later.

19 Romania Romania Romania is a sovereign state located in Southeastern Europe It borders the Black Sea, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia, and Moldova. 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.

Lived there for 4 years. The Romanians are poor but mostly friendly welcoming people. The ones you need to watch out for are the Romani. These are travellers of Indian decent and have most of the wealth, mainly down to begging and crime. If a Romanian is involved in crime its usually through necessity to survive. However I was once beat up in a bookies by the owner and 3 other guys for winning on a few dog races.

Bucharest, Romania �" Violent and organised crime is quite low in Romania's capital, but the city ranked 79th because of widespread corruption and petty crime.

20 Moldova Moldova Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south.

Very poor, nice people though. There are also loads of communists.

Human Trafficking...

24 Hungary Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

The murder rate in Hungary is more than double than in the Western European countries, but it is still lower than in the US, and gunpoint is very rare too, they use knives and axes. Beware of pickpocket on public transport, never leave anything in the car, don't walk with phone in the hand. Villages in the north-eastern part should be absolutely avoided, due to street justice and lynching.

Dangerous especially Budapest, full with offensive rude racist jerks.

Racist, homophobic, alcoholic, intolerant, neo-nazi, need I say more? Let's not forget how easily you can get your hands on drugs, just ask the nearest homeless person, which you find on literally every street corner. Human trafficking is an issue too, especially in Budapest. Pick a better country, seriously. (this is coming from a Hungarian who's lived here for years unfortunately.)

Because of refugees,Hungary has kind of become a unsafe city. Espically Budapest

Cost me 500 euro's to have side window replaced. I do hope the bastard has got nettles growing out of his arsehole
Phil Brixham Devon

In Switzerland, walking in the streets is very dangerous : one often stumbles over gold bars! And each year approx. 15 - 20 people drown in cheese fondue.
Also, dangerous animals like the giant feral cows or the huntsman sheep are to be feared. A very dangerous country indeed!

Terrible air quality in the biggest cities and it's hard to find people you can trust
