Top Ten Least Famous European Countries

I already did one this type of list on asian and african countries. So now we will be looking at the least famous european countries. Without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Montenegro

Good list idea, I was just about to make this list - Alkadikce

Technically the least voted on this list should be at the top.

You'd think Kosovo was the least known country in Europe. But honestly that country gets some attention because of its conflict agianst serbians. Montenegro on the other hand is in no conflict whatsoever and is one of the newest countries in the world, the same day as Serbia, but Serbia stole its spotlight - darthvadern

2 Andorra Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra, also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, is a sovereign landlocked microstate in Southwestern Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.

Andorra, the one country so hard to get in to because of so few roads. A very interesting country I must say, only a third of the population are andorrians strangely enough. It doesn't get the attention it deserves - darthvadern

In my country currently it is well-known because our national team (ashamingly) lost against Andorra in football. There are lots of jokes and memes about that match. - Alkadikce

3 Slovenia Slovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a nation state in southern Central Europe, located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes.

On their own language, Slovenia's and Slovakia's name is even more mischievous - Alkadikce

Slovenia is even often confused with Slovakia (not that Slovakia is more known). - Metal_Treasure

The omst northern of the former yugoslavian states and it doesn't have a border with Slovakia despite their names being almost being the exact same (especially in swedish). Both countries are unknown as well - darthvadern

4 Kosovo Kosovo is a disputed territory and partially recognised state in Southeast Europe that declared independence from Serbia in February 2008 as the Republic of Kosovo.

A country that isn't even reconized as a svereign state by some countries. But it's quite known for that, I mean their conflict with the serbians is quite big. But it's still not that known - darthvadern

5 Liechtenstein

A country often stereotyped as german. That's not entirely wrong since it's the official language, plus the name sounds very german. It's also the smallest german speaking country - darthvadern

6 Luxembourg

The biggest micro-state in Europe (Cyrpus doesn't count since it's asian), but it's yet unknown. Flag is pretty much the same as the Netherlands flag except a much lighter blue so I respect it, it's quite beautiful too - darthvadern

Known for being the richest European country by GDP per capita. - Metal_Treasure

7 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.

Was part of Romania, but in WWII the Russians annexed it to the USSR and people basically forgot about it. After 1991 it became known as that strange little area between Romania and Ukraine that is struggling a bit on its own. People forget it exists all the time.

Of the eastern europe countries Moldova is the least famous easly. I mean compared to the other countries: Belarus is known for being the last dictatorship in Europe, Ukraine has an ongoing conflict with Russia, Romania has the dracula myth and Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in Europe, and Russia needs no explanation. This one however is squeezed in between Romania and Ukraine and doesn't seem too well-known - darthvadern

8 Lithuania

Despite actually being the biggest country in the baltic both by size and population, the only thing this country is seemingly known for is its high suicide rate. This actually does kinda offend me because I am half lithuanian, and it's kinda sad, I won't hate the world because of it, but I wish it had more spotlight than Sweden and the other balt countries - darthvadern

I have always wanted to visit Lithuania mainly because it’s history and culture - RawIsgore

9 Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. 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 ...read more.

A former yugoslavian state, Macedonia is the most southern of the former yugoslavian countries. The only thing people seem to know about this country is their history. - darthvadern

10 Monaco Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state and microstate, located on the French Riviera in Western Europe.

Other than being the second smallest country in both the world and Europe, Monaco doesn't get much attention. It's flag is also so similar to Indonesia's so that's probably another reason - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Malta Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a Southern European island country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea.

So unknown I even forgot to have it one the list - darthvadern

12 Belarus Belarus, officially the Republic of Belarus, formerly known by its Russian name Byelorussia or Belorussia, is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe bordered by Russia to the northeast, Ukraine to the south, Poland to the west, and Lithuania and Latvia to the northwest. Its capital and most populous ...read more.
13 Latvia Latvia, officially the Republic of Latvia, is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, one of the three Baltic states.

Estonia always steals its spotlight - darthvadern

I do think Latvia is the least known of the Baltic country’s but Lithuania is a close second but Lithuania has a famous history so that’s why - RawIsgore

14 Slovakia

Even though Slovenia is less known, Slovakia isn't that known either. Not even I know that much about Slovakia other than it being part of Czechoslovakia, and even then Prague was the capital of that country and not Bratislava (Slovakia's capital city) - darthvadern

15 Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia-Herzegovina or Bosnia & Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH or B&H, and, in short, often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula.
16 London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

What London is not a country

17 Cyprus Cyprus, officially the Republic of Cyprus, is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, off the coasts of Syria and Turkey.
18 Croatia Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (independence since 1991), is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean. 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.
19 San Marino San Marino, officially the Republic of San Marino, also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino, is an enclaved microstate surrounded by Italy, situated on the Italian Peninsula on the northeastern side of the Apennine Mountains.

Another micro state in Italy to be specific - darthvadern

20 Vatican City Vatican City, officially Vatican City State or the State of Vatican City, is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. It is the smallest nation on Earth, and is the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.

No, it's known for being the smallest country in the world - darthvadern

I think Vatican City is pretty well known - RawIsgore

21 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.
