Top 10 European Countries to Visit
No other European country can offer such beaches and surely few in the whole world.
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...
When some one say "Europe", France is almost every time the first thought and it's not a coincidence. Don't be afraid by the bad reputation of Parisans, they are just tired because there is always a lot of tourists, and be carefull with tourist trap like in every big cities. But Paris is just a little part of France, there is so much more to see. If some natives seem to be rude it can be a misunderstanding due to cultural differences (you can find something rude that can be regular for French people). As elsewhere there are jerks and if you don't prepare you can have some difficulties.
So there are the same problems as elsewhere but if you want to see the best European country it's undoubtedly France.
If you wanted to see the real France you should have come decades before. With european people, no problem, but with people from maghreb, it's getting a giant mess. you can't mix roman and arabic culture, especially muslim. they have a natality rate higher than native french, and immigrants still arrive in greater number. They don't assimilate, speak to their children in arabic only, more than half of them can't even speak french when they go to school, overall as a population they are loud braggarts, dirty and aggressive, they have no respect for authority, you see more and more nickabs everywhere, you can walk in the street and see that they compose more than half the people you saw. France is slowly dying from the muslim cancer. It's not a melting pot nor cultural diversity, it's the disappearance of the french roman catholic culture, it's an invasion.
I'm French and I would really like to thank people here from wherever they are how have nicely comment my home country.
I hope with all my heart that they will be for ever welcome in France.
Here also I would like to ask all to do the same and French to welcome and respect everyone who visits our beautiful country.
Even though the world class cities of Madrid and Barcelona steal more than their well deserve fair share of the spotlight from other international destinations, Spain has the unmistakable European Old World charm, yet that escense which you can't really describe and hence you must experience for yourself. Zaragoza, Toledo, Cordoba, and the Spanish planes will show you more than you bargain for, weather you look for culture to absorb, good weather, or somewhere to take a breather.
Most diverse country in Europe. Pyrenees are snowy and very wild mountains. North coast with big forests is always green and moist. The center plains are like Arizona but with ancient towns. Warm southern beaches. And the only deserts in Europe. Balearic islands, Ibiza, emerald island in the Mediterranean sea. Canary islands, tropical islands. Most diverse wild fauna in west Europe, beautiful landscapes. A country plenty of adventure sites, the best for climbing. Paleolitic art in caves. Hundreds of dolmens. Rome cities. Medieval cathedrals and castles in Castilla. Big cities like Madrid and Barcelona with lot of art and museums. Medium wonderful cities like Seville or Toledo with a lot of history. Fiesta and carnivals in Pamplona, Tenerife or Cadiz. Best parties and clubs in Ibiza, Madrid, Barcelona and in Mediterranean resorts. Talking and warm people, beautiful girls. Best weather and the sun...
I'm Spanish and Spain is one of the best places to visit take my word on it, there you will find from high peaks to amazing beaches and the best kind of people which will always be excited and happy to meet you! Spain should be in the top 5. All cities have their own amazing qualities and the history of Spain is deeply shown around Spain
For fun, Spain has no equal. Italy might be great for art and design -as we are too-, but... Where do all Italians go when they want to have a good time -especially gays? -, or anybody else for that matter? : S-P-A-I-N. Is this factor considered when listing countries with a high quality of life? Switzelrand? Give me a break!
Italy covers an area of 301,338 km2. With almost 62 million inhabitants, it is the 3rd most populous EU member state. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Italy shares open land borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City. The Capital and largest city is Rome. Other major cities are Milano, Naples, Turino, Venice, Florence. Italy's official language is Italian. ...read more.
Italy has the riches history in Europe if not in the whole world. We have more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country in the world. Our people are warm, kind and welcoming. The only problem is that we can sometimes be close-minded in some aspects like tourism, we receive so many tourists annually and we seem not to give much importance to the fact that we need to make their stay enjoyable in the sense that our roads in the south are in terrible state, traffic is horrible, we need more beach resorts etc. I would say that Italy need to take example from Spain tourism-wise. If we can get to that level and have the tourist attraction that we have we can surely beat France or any other country in terms of international arrivals.
Here in Switzerland we have lots of Italians who immigrated with us for the last 150 years.
Each year and that for generations most of them, and by entire families are returning back to their own country (Italy). That shows how much they are not integrated and how much they do not want to really stayed in Switzerland. Those people do not give any added value to our country. They just refuse to be pure Swiss.
And we guess that this stupid and arrogant way to do is not only visible in Switzerland but also in major countries where they have migrated all along the ages.
So they just come with their food pizza and pasta, eat just that and never try to tend to be Swiss.
Most of other migrants from Asia, Africa and South-America for example are much more respectable people and therefore much to be respected.
And Italians will never accept in their own country someone doing the same as they are doing.
For this reason Italians are very racist, in despite ...more
I've visited Italy three times now, and I'm from Washington, USA. I visited quite all the country, from the North, were you can find the most fashionable city in the world: Milan, the most romantic one, venice and my favourite city in Italy: Turin; to the South, with Naples, Puglia and Sicily, that are wonderful regions. I've been in the most artistic cities such as Florence and Rome and I can say that Italy has one of the richest history in the world and the richest art heritage, that America could forget. But I have to say that Italians, who are very nice many times and very worm people, they're also a little racist (not all obviously) and not well organised. I really suggest to go to Italy at least once in your life, because it's an immersion in art and culture (that's why it's know for the great art, music, literature too and certainly cuisine).
To my swiss friend that has commented, I just want to explain that Italians go back to Italy for holidays and to meet the friends and family after one year of hard job in Switzerland. They want to see some sun shining! They are Italians not pure Swiss, maybe the second generation will have more Swissness. About the added value, they come to work, not to robber, it is not a added value. Did you visit all the countries where Italians emigrated? I did with many and they create an added value!
You are very racist with your comment! Swiss have spoiled you with all the dirty money from the world, also Italian money that you accept without checking where it comes from. What Italy gave to the world and what Switzerland gave? I know many swiss and fortunately they are not all like you.
Some territory was lost after World War 1 and a lot more after World War 2, basically started by Hitler's Nazi dictatorship. Then the Soviets kept their zone - the 'DDR', East Germany, separate with a wall through the middle of Berlin, until 1990 when the country was reunited. ...read more.
Technically, the best country to hold the most interesting history and the most beautiful, attractive sights and landscapes(along with Switzerland and Czech)...Surprisingly, every single thing out there is perfectly made...the architectural buildings, the castles, the shops in towns and cities...every thing's goes really well. Germany is a one-package country...
I gotta actually disagree to have Germany as number 2 on this list, gotta beat France...almost every single castle out of Germany can beat France all combined...
Germany is definitely one of the best choices to select. Nothing's more beautiful than watching Karlsruhe, Oktoberfest and Berlin's natural landscapes and diversions. Frankfurt's dancing lights at night look extremely beautiful...plus, Germany's castles are built in a fascinating and beautiful way, found in extremely beautiful and natural places as mountains and more...Germany's definitely one of the most wonderful, beautiful and natural country in the world.
Best country to visit by far! So much amazing architecture and historic sites as wel as breath taking modern architecture. Germany has the biggest zoo in Europe as well as the biggest rollercoaster in the third biggest theme park so lots to see if your not interested in history too! Also the cuisine is a must see if you have a sweet tooth!
I love Germany, because it has got all you need! In the north the coast lines, the east much history about the world wars, the west has got big cities and great architechture (every part has got wonderful architechture). And the last one the south: There are the wonderful alps and the beautiful castles like Neuschwanstein castle.
Greece is a unique county with lovely people who always welcome tourists with a smile. The beaches, monuments, taverns and cities are picturesque! The water is crystal clear and a swim in necessary. You can come and witness history, traditions and most of all the greek life! Trust me you'll be wanting to come back again! Oh and I almost forgot... That amazing climate! Warm with a large sun shinning on the phenomenal country you MUST visit at least once before you die!
From the moment you step off that plane. You feel like as if paradise is in front of you. Beaches are the best in Europe. Italy and Spain are nothing compared to Greece because the people are actually nice not like the other countries. Food is amazing. Over 2000 islands with clear water and the cleanest. So much history. Italians don't like tourist. Greece IS THE BEST! Amazing night life too
Greece is definitely on my bucket list. It's got beautiful scenery, great food and interesting history. I'd love to visit it one day!
Greece has simply a unique combination of unparalleled history, incredible culture, by far the longest pristine coastline in the Mediterranean, incredible cuisine, 6000 islands, 80 % mountains meaning that everywhere you go in Greece, the sights are breathtaking. And the people are one of the most hospitable in the world
Simply the best destination in the world, and that's not me who'm saying.

Portugal is the best country in the world. We'll give you 7 reasons why:

Portugal has it all. It is culturally very rich. Monasteries, castles, forts and much more make it a dream country for those interested in architecture. Sailing on the Douro River you will have a beautiful view of the vineyards and more. It is worth taking some time to visit Porto, a beautiful city where people are very friendly and the food is amazing. Tourists will find lovely small towns and villages to visit. Portugal is truly one of the top destinations in Europe!
A very underrated country and often overshadowed by Spain, this country has a very rich history and culture. The weather is perfect, the people are genuinely nice and helpful. They speak foreign languages very easily. The food is quite original and tasty with all the influences from their ex-colonies. Some of the best beaches in Europe. Lovely little cities and villages. Good looking people. It really should be in the Top 10.
One of the most beautiful, fascinating, wonderful and relaxing country in the world
The landscapes look extremely beautiful..The architectural buildings are elegant-looking and people there are really polite and kind. Such an elegant and beautiful country...deserves a higher rank..indeed!
It's absolutely breathtaking, the scenery, everything. Every day for 4 years, I got greeted by people who I didn't even know in my village. I don't think I will move to a better country in my whole life. Brilliant.
The best place in the world! So clean and posh! Everything here is so upper class and every one is rich and elegant. The scenery, the food, the beautiful towns there's noting quiet like it!
The best country! Chocolate, cheese, cuckoo clocks and wonderful watches as well as swiss army knives! What's not to like? There are loads of mountains and lakes too, of course!
Norway is easily one of the best countries in Europe and in the world to visit. Norway is one of the safest and most peaceful countries in the world. Crime is very rare in Norway so there's nothing to fear when visiting Norway. Norway has plenty of beautiful places that are perfect for tourists to visit. Whether it's in the cities or the countryside Norway has a lot to offer. Norway is one of the cleanest countries in the world because Norwegians care for the environment so much. The cities are great places for shopping and dining. Their weather is also very good because cold weather is much better than hot weather. Norway is an excellent country worthy for anyone to visit.
Norway is a perfect country to visit for just about anyone. The living conditions in Norway are amongst the best in the world. Because Norway is very rich and its people are highly disciplined, crime rate in Norway is one of the lowest in the world, making it a really safe country. The country offers stunning and breathtaking views that are excellent for picture taking. Their foods are also mouthwatering. The weather is also perfect for anyone living in hot countries. Overall, Norway is just a peaceful country that anyone can live in, work in, or visit. A beautiful country in many aspects.
Norway is one of the most beautiful and richest countries in the world. It has several national parks, mountains, fjords, etc. that are super clean and they offer breathtaking views. Its cities and even its public transportations are spotless as well because Norwegians are disciplined enough to know how to make their environment neat and tidy.

They have very delicious food that tourists need to try. The tourist spots are also beautiful and perfect to take photos with. Especially the pretty snow and cold weather.
A country that has contributed through out its history (T.V., Telephone, antibiotics, radar, the steam engine) yet isn't egotistical like other big contributors like England, the Netherlands or Portugal.
Also doesn't have the smarmy ethnocentric streak of their joint closest neighbours the Irish, although they don't cultivate their diaspora like the latter which can be a negative.
All in all, among the nicer European nations.
Born, raised and live here, unbiasedly I think this is one of the most amazing countries in the world, the glaciated landscapes are pretty, the people are funny, the history is rich and the culture is interesting, the air is clean, cold and fresh unlike the suffocating air that's in many other European countries... Should at least be in the top ten
Scotland is one of the world's best countries, in Europe I'd give it number 2 spot, it is usually overshadowed by its southern neighber, which I agree is not right. The one thing Scotland doesn't really have is food (I'm a Scottish myself)
Scotland is one of the most loveliest places.
Amazing people and just makes you feel at home.
Make you want to pack your bags and move there
U can do OF ton OF things like for example: whale whatching, seeing geysers, visiting Beautiful waterfalls, Blue lagoon... Also IT is the number 1 country with the Most rights for women in the world! Should visit IT now and see how Nice and Beautiful IT is!
I live in the United States, but when I start college, I am thinking of doing a degree in Iceland. Less than 100 homicides per year and great place to live. I need to visit here soon, an
It's Summer, it's going to be hot, very hot. Iceland is the opposite of hot, combine that with beautiful scenery and volcanoes and we've got a excellent candidate on our hands.
Iceland is way better than norway there is so much to see you never get bored it should be number one it is so pretty I did so much their.
Great country! One of the friendliest country in the world (very open-minded). Amazing culture. And the architecture.. I love the cities there. Visit The Netherlands. In my opinion the best country in Europe. Visit Amsterdam (of course), Utrecht (very beautiful), Deventer (small but one of the oldest cities in Europe, and very cosy). Greetings from Italia!
Love this country very much. Nice people; good food; they understand foreign languages very well; and most important of all the country has a beautiful landscape, dominated by both cities and nature.
Holland is by far the best country travel and living wise. The food, people and the amazing buity all add up to make your expiriance really stand out. This is in my opinion the best country in Europe. Visit Amsterdam! Taste the pancakes, srtroop wafels, cheese and everything else! Highly recommended!
The Netherlands is a modern country with its traditional buildings and character, great restaurants, great beer, amazing night life and one hell of a good time if you like to smoke week! One word : Glorious
I feel like wanting to visit Sweden. My parents said that it is the safest country in the world. I really like the name Sweden and the flag, but I think that it's also really cold in there, but I would still be hoping to visit it! The European countries that I've already been to are France, Scotland and Turkey I think, and they are OK.
Sweden and Norway should be number 1, not France because France has loads of criminals.
Beautiful landscape, beautiful people, everything in Sweden and Norway is the best of the best.
Don't know why Sweden is so low down on this list, the cities are beautiful, people are nice, fluent in English and it's just a fantastic country, I would want to live there.
Most cities are not very busy, very much culture to enjoy, food is awesome because there's all kinds of restaurants. You also are very safe, and pickpocketing does not even exist in most places.
Seriously people, number one? If you've bin in another country in europe like The Netherlands, you would think differently.When I was in England I saw so many poor and homeless people and I had to stay in a host family living in a slum. This slum is far worse than you can ever imagine in other EU countries such as The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, etc. income inequality is also ridiculously common in that country
How can England be 10th? I live here, and apart from the very unpredictable weather, England has stunning countryside, very interesting history and amazing attractions such as Big Ben, the national history museum, The London Eye, The Tower Of London, Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge and the national gallery! :) have fun exploring such a beautiful place
I live here and I love it! How could it be tenth?! I don't know where else in Europe I could live in, because Britain's so Great! It's in the name: "Great Britain"! But if I were to VISIT another European country, it would be Italy. Definitely.
The most wonderful country, with the most beautiful cities in the world. A mindblowing and beautiful country, with rich food, history, culture and more. Attractions like Alton Towers, Big Ben, London Eye, The Shard, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, and tons more. HOW is it 9th? It's easiliy 2nd or 1st.
Ireland is my favorite of the "European" countries and the most friendly in my opinion. Excellent hearty food, beautiful green hills and an impressive variety of castles and classic museums. The cliffs and scattered fishing towns abound with colorful row houses and excellent sea food. It is easy to get around on the Dart if you fancy Dublin and the east, but some of the greatest pleasures of Ireland lie in the west with charming towns like Cobh and Kinsale and gorgeous cities like Galway. Don't miss the Cliffs of Moher and if your a into ancient history then most definitely visit Waterford and Adare.
Ireland is simply one of the most magical countries in the world. It is no wonder that it has produced the finest poets and writers in the English language. It's landscape of green valleys, mist shrouded hills and lakes make it a romantic dream one that the people genuinely wish to share with you. Their hospitality is legendary so find the time to go there will be an experience you will never forget.
Filled with history and beautiful scenery no matter where you look. The people are genuine, fun and super hospitable! This is my favorite European country, and I'm not of Irish descent. Tourism is much more reasonable than other countries and the Irish really give quality service to their tourist. I'm pleasantly impressed. Ireland exceeded my expectations in every way.
Lovely rich, natural country with stunning scenery and green lush country sides and with breathtaking coastlines and beaches. Generally nice country and friendly people despite the stereotypical fights between the religions and of course the unpredictable weather! But when Ireland is sunny honestly in my opinion one of the nicest countries to be and live in
Green, that's the best word I could describe about Wales. The countryside is fantastic, and it's full of forests. The language is unique in many ways. It should be higher up, definitely. Wales, it's the country of poets, musicians and artists. It is THE place for me.
Love from somewhere else not in the UK!
Google up Snowdonia. Wales should not be 30th I'm telling you. Top 15 at the very least. Unbelievable scenery of coastlines, countryside, castles, loads of mountains plus many, many landmarks and attractions! Wales is THE perfect country for the tourist.
How is Wales so low? Beautiful countryside and amazing coastlines. It has amazing history along with modern cities such as Cardiff and Swansea which are amazing places to visit.
Why is wales so low? Why has no one ever heard of the place?
When I was in London I believed that I'm in a fairy tale. There are a lot of interesting places and people. I hope that I can visit this unforgettable country again. Unfortunatelly, it is hard to take visa to your country.
Good! Too many beautiful places. The Buckingham Palace is so big and great. The Royal family is so Respectful..
Austria is the best place to visit! There are so many sights like famous castles or churches and also attractions like the Prater! Also, Austria is very clean and the people are extremely nice!
Austria is a very beautiful and traditional place! Come here and enjoy the mountains and nature!
One of the most beautiful countries in Europe, the Alps and the lake scenery like Switzerland, castles and palaces like France and Germany, clean, clean, rich, people are very friendly, almost perfect
Yes! I agree. I was born there and growing up with polite, beautiful people has been amazing! If you have any questions about this please contact me on Kik: Sharon1DLuver
Must-to-visit! I've been there many times and I'm going again this summer. My favourite places are Zagreb, Cres and Sibenik. People there speak english (not that great, but who cares :-) ) and they are so nice and helpful. And the beaches... Heaven. So many historical buildings, and I love their culture. So quiet and peaceful, completely opposite than Manhattan (NYC) where I live. CAN'T WAIT SUMMER!
I love this country! It is filled with lots of history and its residents are always kind and friendly towards us. Exploring lesser known areas in Croatia is lots of fun - the history makes you one with the land!
Our Croatian brothers and sisters. You all need to visit Croatia old towns nice people and beaches.
I am very lucky because I live in Bosnia and we are their neighbours and we are proud of it.
Great place for spending your vacation, the sea is perfect and you can explore its history and thousands of islands. There are also many beautiful old cities and food is as well amazing.
It's expensive in Finland, but the country is so beautiful! Lot of forest's, lot of lake's (Finland is called Country of the thousand lake's) friendly people, and of course, over 2 million Sauna's, in summer, lot of music festival's around Finland and many more other great things. I really suggest Finland to visit.
Very Underrated but very beautiful country.
Summer or winter its worth visiting. Everyone are voting for countries like Germany France or Sweden but seriously Forests, lakes, Helsinki and many other cities are totally worth visiting. Now pack your luggage, Hotel? Trivago and head to Finland!
I have travelled around the world a lot (trust me...a lot, it's my job) and believe me, Finland is the most beautiful country in the world!
Jesus Christ, people go to overrated like Germany, France, Italy. Well this place is extremely underrated.
Castles, Nature and Prague.. very nice city welcoming people and the best thing about Czech Republic is the atheism rate which is about 90%.. That is a dream country for all open minded, smart and science-universe aware folk.
My mom has been to Czech and she says that it is a beautiful country to visit. My babysitter also lives there. I've never been there but I bet it's gorgeous too.
Prague is a great city to visit. Very open minded people that are also super hot. Only country better to visit is Hungary because of Budapest!
I live in Prague and it's simply best city in the Europe, the only problem with Czech Republic is, that is 80% atheistic country.
I must say it is the most underrated country of Europe. When I first visited it, I thought it was a boring country because people always told me so. But boy was I wrong. Great parties, cities (Ghent, a hidden gem), great beers and food, really beautiful architecture. amazing art-museums and a lot of quirkiness! Loved it! Skip flat holland or expensive london and Visit Antwerp, Ghent or Brussels (the dullness is just a facade) instead!
I'm feeling people really underestimate this country. I've been there for my studies, and I absolutely loved it! Far better than beaten track countries like France or Italy and a lot better than the boring Netherlands!
I'm Dutch. But I this country is worth it for sooo many reasons. You really need to visit Belgium before you die if you ask me.
Amazing people, amazing food, amazing cities,... Everything is amazing in Belgium
Denmark is one of the most enjoyable countries in the EU. It has history and many updated facilities along with very friendly people. It is also quiet and peaceful most of the year, which makes it the perfect place to relax.
I've been in Copenhagen, it's very funny and comfortable to walk in that city. I would love to see the rest of that country!
Denmark's the best
There's so many reasons to visit Denmark.
There's so many, that I cannot say anything ;_;
I really don't know how Denmark is number 18. It should be top 10.
Best modern country sea cost, lakes and mountains in 8 hours drive.
A lot of old castles ( some change in to hotels), European history you can see everywhere. Excelled food grate price "off main street ". Very safety
Poland DO NOT allow immigrants special Muslims. Sumner is the best time visit. Easy to drive many new expressway.
They have great old towns like Krakow ( interesting historical and architectural place with great main square), summer is fun there because of plenty lakes, for winter they have mountains, great food.
A beautiful mix of architecture, friendly people, good public services and one of the best environments in Europe. There is even a small desert.
The only thing I know much more of Poland is the holocaust so in my form is not that convenient, but it's my opinion you can visit it as much as you want.
Turkey is not unique at all, it's the dumbest country in the world, they have no creativity and the majority of the people don't even like living in Turkey. Turkey is the 19th best country in Europe cause the majority of they're land is Armenian which they took from the Armenians 101 years ago, the Armenian land is what's making Turkey popular or not Turkey would look like a dump filled with turkeys � - . Turks are thieves whatever they have are all stolen.
If you want to visit, Turkish people have a great hospitality. You all will feel welcome. Also Turkey isn't just Istanbul, there are really great cities to visit at East and West. As a Russian, I spent five of my vacations in Antalya, amazing city... They have the best coasts and a great culture.
Please put Istanbul in the first place ( I swear to God this city is stunning ) have been almost all of Europe I found istanbul one of the best, visit and see, I promise you will never wish to go! LOVE YOU ISTANBUL
I think Turkey is one of the most unique destinations in the World, it's probably my favourite European destination along with Italy and Spain.
This country is not for everyone. Visits are preferrable during May-October, when it is warmer and more day light. I recommend start your visit with St. Petersburg and Moscow, those are more European-like cities, with all of the modern conveniences available. The rest of Russia is good to visit if you are an adventurous type and open minded.
We went two times to travel to Russia and we fell in love with this country. Russia amazing country. I think living there is quite interesting and not boring. Russia and the Russian are different than the rest. I advise everyone to visit
I visited that and loved it. I don't care about the government, or their decisions and yes it has some problems, it's just a nice place to visit in my opinion.
Ukraine is good in their own way too.
Vladimir Putin all the way I've not been attracted by it, but it may be a nice country.
