Rudest Countries

The Top Ten

1 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 .

I lived there for years. I've traveled most of the world and lived in four countries (including the hilariously #1 on this list - a straight hater vote). Without question Polish people are some of the most base, tactless, ignorant, arrogant, deluded, shallow, racist, anti-semitic, lying, thieving, backstabbing, complex-riddled, and you got it, RUDE people on planet earth. Making it worse, they actually think they're wonderful, as many of them are also the least Christian, 'Christians' you'll ever meet. This is only funny the first ten times they tell you how lovely they all are (and start criticizing your country as many are also 'global/cultural' experts). They are on these kinds of lists for a reason. Yes, there are some exceptions, but every cool and thoughtful Pole I knew there hated it and was either planning an escape or was trapped there because of family.

Very rude and egocentric people, nationalistic and blinded from self appreciation. Should be higher on the list.

Catholics from the middle age thinking and doing, racist against any migrant or even refugee.

Uhh... I'm Polish. We're not that bad, believe me.. It's only that most of us never choose to learn foreign languages, because they don't understand how difficult our language is to learn... Or because they just never could learn it.. Ok. Now, this is probably gonna sound wrong, but I'm sure most of the people commenting are the "I don't know anything about it, so I'll speak up" kind of people. Sorry if that sounded rude, but that's the way it is. - redhawk766

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.

Absolutely ridiculous, France, UK and USA are among the most multi cultural countries in the world, in France more than 170 countries are represented, the tensions are more between some ethnics part than else. The French people are kind anyway and France stays the most visited country, so rude you say? Just because you don't know anything at all and just believing in stereotypes as any mindless guy.

France is my favorite country and I am Irish!

France has an amazingly diverse culture, and the language is easy to learn, not rude at all.

Honestly, France is the most visited country in the world, so as a tourist who doesn’t speak French at all, it was so dificult for me to order my food or to ask a route. Nobody speaks English and apparently no one makes the effort to understand you or helping you.

3 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

Totally absurd. I've travelled and lived in a number of countries. When you're strictly talking about people and character here (not politics or power) American's, in general, are some of the most helpful, friendly, kind, creative, open, tolerant, honest, and fun people on earth. Every possible race, color, nation, religion, orientation, and creed can be found in even smaller cities, in the middle of nowhere, in the US. It's the melting pot of the world and it's diversity is unmatched anywhere Are there rude Americans? Of course. It's not perfect. But there is no way it's objectively one of the 'rudest' countries on earth.

Ridiculous comments left mostly by people with intermediate level English pretending to be Americans - or people who've never been there and are haters. There is absolutely no way any globally well traveled, remotely honest person thinks the US is even in the top 10 on this list. Clowns.

Although I'm American citizen, but I have more respect for non-American citizens than American citizens (only those who never been outside of USA). All the stereotypes about certain people come from Americans themselves. They are most ignorant people because most never travel outside of USA. They say that Chinese are good at maths, however, this only applies to Chinese Americans, not native mainland Chinese. They make rude jokes about people based on skin colour, hair colour and other physical traits. Racism is always persistent in United States since slavery of Africans. Americans are so arrogant that they put more emphasis on individualism. They do have strongest military, but they withdrew from recent wars like Iraq. They have the largest prison population due to gun killings, property destruction and crimes against humanity. Not all Caucasians are Americans because they can be from Europe, Canada or Australia. Americans are mostly prideful pricks who are always arrogant.

I think it's one of the rude country because likie there's a lot of bullying going on and that means that a lot of people are rude.

4 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.

Cons: Rigid, arrogant, not very good taste in clothing, cold, grumpy and often not as efficient as the theory says (that's for the Swiss instead). Oh, and arrogant for no reason (they are not the most good looking or the brightest people in the world, are they? ).

Pros: the new generations become more and more open to the English speaking people then the older ones, the latter of whom not being able to speak any other language.

I can agree! I'm from Germany and German people are often rude and grumpy.

Very arrogant, extremely cold and rude people! Efficiency and good work is a myth. People should not believe that. Wondering how the numbers show a powerful nation in Europe. Maybe in numbers but not on live quality.

They got their rudeness from the Nazis - infinitecirculation

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

Italy (along with Romania) are probably the most deranged Latin nations when it comes to people.

Pros about Italians: good taste in clothes, personality (when common sense rules the person), many men and women are very good looking.
Cons: literally no manners; no professionalism in business.

I'm Italian and don't listen to these idiots, Italians are not arrogant, they just have pride and confidence in themselves. When it comes to rudeness, it depends at the location. The south is full of short tempered and egotistic people, but the north is the complete opposite. Italians are not nasty and not demoralizing and they do not think they are best at everything, what the hell are these lunatics talking about. They're certainly not deranged, some people just need to explore and educate themselves more because most of these comments are completely false.

Rudeness can be bafflingly subjective. While smiling may be a common way to greet someone, in Italy it could be interpreted as insincere we discovered when travelling across the country. When I wanted to ask directions our first impression was that nobody was willing to help us, or in such an unintelligible language. When we tried to make contact nobody smiled and looked really helpful or approachable. Only later I learned that in Italy smiling at strangers can be interpreted as making fun of them.

No! Get rid of Italy!

Italians are so helpful and polite. Very attractive people and very romantic language. Been there three times never had problems, always wanting to help a hand.

Italian Bengali are even more polite and friendly - infinitecirculation

6 United Kingdom United Kingdom The United Kingdom (UK) is a sovereign state which consists of the political and economic union of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It was a member of the European Union (EU) from 1973 to 2016. ...read more.

Very rude and some can be very negative and abusive and even violent. Very good at not minding there own business. Can be often arrogant. And think the world should all be like them.

Traveled extensively and found, Brit drivers most courteous, but London rip-off, watch your prices and change carefully. France, locals great but watch out for err non-locals, danger violent thieves. USA, most people great but too many hands out for tips for no reason, NYC great but every where do a deal. Asia, everyone wants to do a deal, possible USA influence. UK, USA and France definitively not the rudest.

Like many other countries, the UK definitely has some problems, but I have always found them to be very friendly and personable. However, they do need to address their tendency to be ridiculously strict with their 'rules' and relax their pants on some issues. Recently, at a run-of-the-mill highstreet cafe in York, England, a waitress came to my table and admonished me for sharing half of my sandwich with my husband. Apparently if my husband wanted a sandwich, he should have ordered one for himself, sharing is not allowed (what). She ignored the fact that he had already eaten his full meal. Seriously though...correcting adult customers? Let it go, you're not SuperNannyNation. Apart from that, they're usually warm and friendly.

Never met so many rude people until I moved here...and I'm American! - catlvr

Not better than Italy, same kind of behavior towards foreigners and outside world.

Refuse any immigration, close-minded.

I'm starting to see a pattern here-the people commenting here aren't actually commenting on how rude the locals are to tourists, but are really just venting about the country's attitude towards immigration which is why countries such as Poland, UK and America are around the top.

So I have a message to all the Africans, pakistanies and butthurt Muslims-not even country in the world is entitled to treat you like a snowflake and let migrants from your area and so called "refugees" walk freely into our countries

8 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.

What should I say..

Would be number one on this list if it wasn't for the fact the other countries get more visitors and therefore more votes.


the absolute worst people I have ever met, maybe 10% of them are nice and decent people but the majority are unbelievably bad.

9 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptians are the most rudest, impolite & loud people I ever saw. They don't have respect for any one what so ever.

Worst nation

Egyptians are the rudest people on the whole planet

Most uncivilized people in the earth..

Tourists from China are often commented as being rude.

There so mean and impolite.

Chinese And Japanese Can Be Rude, NO Respect Or Manners But Sadly That's How There Bought Up. We Cannot Really Blame Them. When I Opened A Door For A Teacher In College She Just Snorted At Me.

I've spent since 1996 trying to understand Chinese. Lived around then dealt with tgem in Buisness. I've found them two faced back stabbing and sneaky. They would walk over the top of your child if they fell. They renig on deals and have little concern for life. Its sad as I've tried to make excuses for years for them but lately a Chinese association and its employees not only triwd to screw me over but failed. Very untidy outlook to sincerity. Would stab you in back at tge blink if an eye. Its sad. But over the last 20 years I've fpund the Chinese to bw nothing more than cruel opportunists with no regret or honourable intentions.

It depends what island you go to and what area, North island especially in Rotarua, Hamilton and Auckland there are very rude and racist people there, but in the South Island the more south you go the nicer the people

I live there and I'm canadian they are so racist!

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

Gross attitude and a mentality coming from the medieval era. Russia, you may have big balls and great power all over the world, but you really need to grow up. Seriously!

Not helpful at all, very rude not only to foreigners but among themselves. If someone shows kindness, watch out they want to rob you.

Depends on the area.

It's pretty obvious we're not going to like people who associate us with drugs and Putin.

17 Kosovo 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.

I just got back from my trip to the Balkans and most of the people in these countries where super kind but when I went to Kosovo they where worse then the French they think that if you have the money to go there your just there to shove it in there face that you have money!

I know a man from Kosovo that lives in North America. He told me he doesn't trust women, or believe them. And he cheats on all of his girlfriends. He has a few of them at a time. And he hates Serbs.

Why isn't this in the top ten. I live in kosovo, and everyone there is so mean, like once I walked around the supermarket and the casheir was so rude to my mom,however the kids at school are nice, I think its just the adults that are mean

18 Honduras Honduras Honduras became an independent nation in September 15, 1821. Bordering Countries: Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Capital: Tegucigalpa, FM Population: 8 Million Language: Spanish Major Exports: Coffee, Bananas, Apparel, and Palm Oil. Currency: Lempira
19 Mexico Mexico

Gossipy. Vain. Enjoy pecking orders. Vicious. Even those who deny it are casually racist, sexist and homophobic. Very enjoyable people if you know what lines not to cross.

Not only rude but arrogant.

Yeah some people are very rude and racist

Much worse than every other country on this list should be in top 10. Drug cartels and lots of people carry guns especially tour guides which in my opinion is scary!
Canada shouldn't be on this list nor Austrailia they are safe and the people there are amazing! Usa and Russia should be 1 and 2 Russia because their people are just begging for money. Usa because they ask where your from and before that they could really care less about you then they ask you where your from and if you say any country that's well known and liked they will be all nice to you and beg for money! I blame TRUMP. But Mexico in 38 should be bumped to 4 or 8, Horribly rude all those spics. All other countries are well rated though except Canada and Austrailia. they are extremely nice!

20 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 . ...read more.

This is one of the most soulless country I've ever been to. And I'm saying that because of the Swiss. I've never seen such a rude nation anywhere in this world I've been travelling through for a while. Swiss tend to live in their own bubble, have an extremely rude behavior and believe the entire universe revolves around their country, which is clearly wrong. And the racism is at a very, but very high scale.

Pros: extraordinary landmarks, amazing food, it's great place to make money, perfect infrastructure, high linguistic variety, chocolate, watches, high efficiency in business.
Cons: people

I'm half Swiss. The people you meet here tend to look very nice and BE very nice to you if they don't know you, but once they get to know you better (and especially, if you're from another country), they will verbally abuse you and put themselves very high on the scale. I'm more Polish than Swiss, and I don't understand how Poland is #1 on this list. We tend to be very nice people, shame that most of us choose not to learn other languages. Switzerland is all fine, but (some) of the people... - redhawk766

The Swiss just don't have any personality.

I am from Bern (the Hauptstadt (capital). I have met good very nice fellow 'Schwyzer Lüte' and some bad apples as well. Still, as I was born there CH is special to me.

I would say that the USA in my experience is most likely the winner for being the rudest and most obnoxious place on the Third Planet from the Sun (especially with D J Trump as their new President)!
