European Countries with the Strongest People

Here, you will find the countries which perhaps have the strongest people of Europe. This list is not influenced by contests but purely by physical strength and genetic builds.

The Top Ten

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.

There are 3 options: you either lift/box, play sports (football, volley), or hack computers...

Polish people are strong. Very strong. No-one knows exactly how but the Polish people have carried their gene of physical strength for thousands of years. Hard-workers? Yes, but that's not all. The poles are from Eastern Europe... A lot of what you'll be seeing on this list. - NotBiasedBot

Your right boss

Polish people are super stronk

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.

Albanians and Kosovans are the exact same thing. Same blood, same mind and same strength. as well as mental strength, the Albanians have tonnes of physical strength. It's like Albania is it's own little continent with Kosovo, they're hated by most Balkan countries (partly because of their arrogance) and their strength (as seen in street fights against Macedonians or Africans) is excessive... - NotBiasedBot

Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, more.

Bulgarian men seem to have a very similar hobby - Bodybuilding, or Gym. The women (of course) are extremely strong due to the generations of carrying heavyweight raw materials like wood, and working in kitchens. But the Bulgarian men are extremely strong. The older they are the worse they can fight, but generally speaking they're brutal fighters. - NotBiasedBot

Bulgaria has produced a lot of world-class olympic weightlifters.


Is there even someone who became popular as a polish strongman or something? No? Because there are no strong polish people, bulgarians are the strongest in the world. Dimitar Savatinov is one of the strongest man in the world, lifted 140 kg on one hand, drug-free without any steroids like the most men are using. Stoyan Todorchev - was the strongest man during the 2012 year. Look at some boxing matches or something, bulgarians take down easily their opponents, especially americans and europeans. For example the legends ''craig tullier and devon larrat'' lost against Plamen Dimitrov and Krasimir Kostadinov even though they are just regular bulgarian men, not pretending to be a strongman or anything. I think bulgaria should take the 1st place and after bulgaria, ukraine at 2nd, they are extremelly strong people, not some albanian and polish miserable genders taking steroids non-stop then pretending to have a strong genes...Not true. Also the bulgarians are number 1 weightlifters, strong ...more

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.

Is it an Eastern European thing? Clearly... The Romanians are really hard workers. They work as hard as the Albanian and Slavic builders who have invaded most Western countries like the UK. They're men are generally pretty strong, and some can fight quite well, but this doesn't account for the whole nation. - NotBiasedBot

They mess you up and kill your parents, be prepared Jews

German people have an average build. Hundreds of years of political unrest has lead to the inner strength they have (not all of them, but a few). But as we've established, strength in Europe is dominated and mostly prominent by the Eastern Europeans. - NotBiasedBot

Pretty obvious if you look at how many strongmen and athletes this VERY small country produces.

Iceland should be at least top 5. It has Hafthor Bjornsson, Jon Pall and Magnus Ver Magnusson, and many more

Iceland should be in first place
