Worst Countries In Europe

The Top Ten

1 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. ...read more.

Famous of suppression of human right, freedom of association and choice, supply military means to junta states such as Syria generally a vicious police state and human trafficking capital of the world.

I hate everything in this country because I live here. The homophobic laws, non-legitimate president, anti-people laws - we've got all of this. I'd never suggest anyone to visit russia.

The world's biggest nuclear arsenal aimed at western Europe.
A country that is proud of its power to destroy. The Russians suppressed half of Europe for 45 years and don't feel sorry for it.

You all suck, Russia is the best country in the world

2 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. ...read more.

It's amazing how such a small country can sustain one of the worst and widely spread mafias in Europe.

SUCKS so embarrassing thinking that they are better than Greece
Greece is much much better than Albania

Muslims in Europe, talk about being uncivilized.

Currently polluting Switzerland and ruining their culture, they'd be better off if they drowned in the sea rather than fleeing from Kosovo.
Truly is a stain on the continent.

Hey, take that back! Not all Muslims are uncivilized look at Turkey or Singapore!

Worst country.steals land from serbia and acts tough when it is protected by NATO

3 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.

Err, poor country!? Poverty!? Crime!? What!? Nonsense. US, for example, has a much, much higher poverty rate than Serbia. That's a lot. Many other countries who are more developed than Serbia have way higher poverty rates. Pretty much everyone here can afford the usual luxuries of today's world - a car, a house or an apartment, television, a PC or a laptop, a smartphone, etc. Of course, not everyone needs a smartphone or a computer so maybe they don't have them, but they can afford them. Talk about poverty. Really low poverty rate. The GDP may not be so high but neither is poverty.

Next up, crime. Crime!? Pfft. I live in a town with some 60 000 - 70 000 people. I can't remember the last time a major crime was committed here. Murder? Absolutely no way. Armed robbery? Nope. Of course, sometimes some crook is gonna steal something but even that rarely happens. Even in the capital with 2 000 000 people, Belgrade, the crime rate is low. Again, the US has a way higher crime rate, ...more

Stop including the US in everything, unless your jealous of our country. Your still going to include our country in a European list about European countries. - FerrariDude64

I am Serbian. I don't really love my country but it hurts reading how many people see us like killers because I know that is not true. We have an awful government that robs us and make us all look bad. But the ordinary people are just mostly depressed, suicidal and lost all fate that one day it will be better. No, we are not evil and I am not even going to start that boring discussion about war, Balkan, Croatia etc. I don't hate any country and I really don't know anyone who does. There are some really nice places in Serbia and so many good people. And about education... Well, it's really not that bad. - Itisalljustanillusion

You are right. People know nothing about our country, yeah, there is a lot of bad things here and I don't love it very much, too. BUT not all the people are racists, killers etc. I don't support them (I will never), but nobody can't say that all the people ARE bad here;there are still good ones, like everywhere else. We really hope that someone will change the destiny of our poor, small country, that's all we want. Don't comment if you don't know! :/ - oreova_zena

Poor country for good people.

Good place for food, Belgrade good for party, but people are so rude and agressive.. if you are not agressive to all, even to yours women, you are not "man" there. Not bad people, but very bad talk, like I say, with that arogantic and agressive talk, is not miracle how are got that picture and "genocide" sign. I am from Italia, and I have great time in Belgrade, just be carefull what you talk about there. When Serbs start talk about NATO, politics, just say "ok, ok, that is good rakia! "

4 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 ...read more.

I know many Romanian people.ALL of them are decent hard-working people. Peddling crude and inaccurate stereotypes is intellectually indolent. A country of over 20 million people cannot be reduced to two or three character traits that all are assumed to possess. Anyone who does so is quite simply a cretin.

Try and go in to the mountains. No stealing there and very beautiful landscapes... Or try old area called Transilvania. I will bet you will change your opinion

Only in to the mountains is no stealing, it makes sense - there are no thieves, and is not for sure, climber-thieves can reach you in to the mountains, so keep an eye on your equipment.

As a Romanian who lived most of her life in England, I can say that Romania is not a bad country. I'm originally from Bucharest and I can tell you that the crime rate there is actually pretty low, not sure about other parts because I've only really been to the main cities. It's a beautiful country and you can't tell me otherwise, some sceneries are absolutely breathtaking. Also, our culture isn't the worst? Whoever said that is clearly uneducated on what it's like to be Romanian. Some of our culture is Latin and Slavic influenced, and our culture is generally to be respectful of everyone. It's also a very child-centric culture, considering why so many parents leave the country to work their asses off to provide for their child. Honestly, if we weren't positioned near communist countries, our economy would've probably been brilliant considering our beautiful geography, history and we could've made some fair money off farming and resources. It's a shame really, because as a country it ...more

Beautiful country, proud people, always unfairly criticised by poorly educated people and media propaganda. Love Romania! Nothing can distroy your good reputation of being ripped off for so little nod and yet a great country with great citizens.

5 Azerbaijan Azerbaijan Azerbaijan, officially the Republic of Azerbaijan, is a country in the Transcaucasian region, situated at the crossroads of Southwest Asia and Southeastern Europe.

The worst country of the Europe and of the world. There isn't freedom, and they just wish a war with Armenia. They want to ruin Armenian Nagorno Karabakh again! I truly hate this country!

Do not care about environment and exploiting their resources

This is not even a European country and why is Poland on this list? We are the best nation ever! - Epekov

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

Greece gave democracy and civilasation to the whole Europe.. We owe them for that.. I am not Greek but I've been there for vacations many times.. They are poor.. So what? Awesome hospitality, awesome food, awesome beaches with an awesome history to go with..

I'm not greek but I solemnly believe Greece isn't nearly one of the worst countries in Europe. Sure their economy is going downhill lately but it's improved everyday. Besides my country was in a worse position some years ago and now it's one the superpowers in Europe (Germany). I can't wait to visit Greece again this summer

Beautiful beaches, good food, amazing weather.
Economy sucks, people can be rude, dangerous drivers, and too many gypsies.

I just came back from holidays in Greece. People are so rude there! Even hotel staff treated me like I'm something worse and they are bosses. I really can't believe I paid for this. Girl in the car rental agency shouted at me and in other office when I sat down man told me that he didn't let me sit on that chair though it was for customers! Worse ever holiday experience. Sometimes weather is not enough to enjoy.

7 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'm a Pole and I must say that this country is full of jerks, tight assed bastards and whining idiots who pretend they know everything about any topic they discuss. There is no happiness here, people are grumpy and hateful towards pretty much anyone, especially other Poles. They may smile occasionally, but deep in their hearts they wish you get cancer or something. Politics are full of jack too, every politician here is an unprofessional thief whose goal is to abuse their laws, exploit the system and rip people off as much as possible. There is a joke going around that the Poland's worst enemy is Poland itself. That's the truth. Also, if you even remotely mention any of our flaws Poles will go butt hurt, call you a national traitor. They say they are tolerant, but in fact they cannot even tolerate themselves, let alone anyone else outside of their narrow, conservative spectrum of thinking. Damned hopeless nation that cannot even maintain itself without ruining everything that our ...more

A fair ranking. Lived there for many years. Some cool people, but it's also home to some of the more neurotic, complaining, dishonest, arrogant, shallow, racist, narrow-minded, duplicitous, miserable people you'll ever meet. I've been around hundreds, and if they're not being envious, complaining, or criticizing - oh, almost everything - then they're being 'an expert' about whatever the topic is. Xenophobic, they slam other other countries, cultures, peoples, while having little distance or self reflection (or sense of humour) towards their own backwardness. Many are full of obvious inferiority complexes and will - and do - lie, cheat, and scam each other with no problem. Rightly, nobody really trusts anybody (in hospitable and wonderful) Poland.

I love Poland. When I visited Poland, compared to other countries in Europe like England, France or Italy, I loved it. Poland is the best country. It is beautiful, historic and powerful. Loads of people make fun of Poland just because they are worse at football than England. I agree but it is an amazing country it self.

Shockingly lame, rude, and aggressively ignorant people. Eternal victims complainers with no equal. Top that off with an uncanny ability to lie, cheat, and stea

8 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.

I am from Ukraine. Trust me IT SUCKS!

its very dirty country
ALCOHOLISM

Atrocious country, absolutely pathetic and deplorable. First off, I'd like to mention that instead of focusing on fixing their "nation", Ukrainians would rather complain, protest, riot, organize a coup, go home, get drunk, and repeat, minus step 4, unless they get tired of their sad government up in Rada. Ukraine's number one hero is not Bohdan Khmelnytsky, who many historians consider the founding father of Ukraine, but instead, it is Stepan Bandera, a genocidal maniac who led the OUN-B, an ultranationalistic militia that, believe it or not, was mostly made up of former SS Galizia members and other Nazi collaborators like the Ukrainian auxiliary police to name a few, rumor has it that Bandera himself was possibly a Nazi collaborator. I would also like to mention that the OUN-B was behind the Volhynian massacre. Lovely though, right? Ukrainians constantly complain about the Holodomor but either get angry at the slightest mention of the Volhynian massacre, or even try to ...more

Beautiful place but very dangerous tovpeople from neighboring country (not everyone though)

9 England England

I've been living in London for about 5.5 year now, which means that I should get used to it, but for whatever reason I can't. I just don't see a point in why people are asking me hundreds of times "are you alright" or "smile", when they themselves are pissed off all the time. Try to get on the tube between 8-10am and You will see how people are smiling, squashed like sardines in a tin. Of course You are late...again? Boss never understands that. At work You have to smile, because if You are not smiling then it means it's not for You. The weather is poor, people are very, very, very rude and arrogant, and these are the ones that usually will point out that it's You that is rude. What else...the food is really poor, people have got no taste whatsoever, You will bring them crap on a plate and they will say it was delicious but will be complaining that the waiter was rude because was not smiling. People here have got huge ego, and all You can feel all the time by ...more

A lot of people come to England with a dream, particularly London. Your dream hasn't worked out, your obviously still waiting tables and not getting anywhere. Maybe it's time for you to return to where you came from. With the experience you've picked up, maybe you can make something of yourself in your own country now.

Born here, lived her all my life and I when I am old enough to leave, I will leave and never bring my ass here again.

Full of Chavs, crap government, immigration problems, unpredictable and appalling weather, football and skinhead hooliganism, Expensive living costs, teenage pregnancy and lots and lots more!

If government could stop Romanian immigrants, that would be great!

Life is so sad there, the English have no sense of "living to the fullest", an expression "the joy of life" is totally misunderstood in England - they think it means falling and breaking an arm in a club's toilet after getting so drunk they couldn't walk.

Mainly because of people, the are so rude and snobbish, poor manners too

SO racist! I came with an IVY league diploma, and their employment-office offered me a cleaning job! I have worked for 3 governments as an analyst- but according to them, I should clean, since I am not Swedish! Lived there for 2 years, and NOBODY helped me with my kids stroller if I needed to get on the bus, nobody ever said sorry for bumping into me, VERY uncivilized people, and STILL they think that they invented technology, they only talk about how great they are. They BBQ EVERYWHERE, even on balconies, like next to your window, on the 6th floor.. It is like they came from caves, they just don't know how to behave around people- like Neanderthal-like creatures. They STARE at people, my husbands black friend felt so bad after a walk- they ALL stared, and even went after him in the shop so he wouldn't steal anything. They, or many, won't move even if you ask them politely. The girls sleep with anyone for a drink - like prostitutes really. They puke everywhere, and get drunk like it ...more

Italians are rude, arrogant, coarse, uneducated, unpolite.

They believe they are the best of the world, and their country is just a ruin apparently tourists love the ruins

They hate anyone is not Italian they are or xenophobe or they treat you like a kid.

They 'drive' like unbrained people, they do not take care of their cities, landscapes, rubbishes every where, beaches all private and expensive, just for rich ignorant Italians and carbon copy of Italians.

Horrible country to live in and to visit.

Yes that is true, there in Italy, people are very racist.

It's so hard as a black or Arabic to find a good job, homes and it seems that because you are not Italian, you have to struggle for anything.

Italians don't hesitate to show their hates, specially when you are foreigner. I was tired of the racism in Italy.

I call all migrants to come here in Italy to make change things.

We will succeed, because there is a lot to do here anywhere Italians are so lazy and inefficient.

I was born in Italy and still I live there. The Italian system gave me an high level of education (up to the university degree) and a full health assistance, everything almost for free (or, if you want, paid by the country overall economics). I think that people that integrate into this system can enjoy and appreciate it. There are troubles not yet solved and Italians have the attitude to leave the problems becoming too big. This is true. About rudeness, racism, unpoliteness, crime, I encountered them in any country were I staid for a while: Europe, Africa, Americas, Asia. I learned that the good feelings depend for the most by ourselves and a little by the "others", although the "others' mis-behaviour" may impact seriously in a negative way. I can't believe that the people who so explicitly hate Italy never found a positive aspect of my beloved country, expecially the ones who have lived here for a long time.

The Contenders

11 Belarus Belarus

A very beautiful place with a rich culture exploited by dirty politicians and invaded previously by dirty soviets for making their own shield.

The only one in Europe that still has capital punishment death penalty.
They forgot the Ordero not kill!

Only reason I like Belarus is because of the great times I had there with family. I am glad I moved to the Netherlands, but I love visiting it for memories and family. The capital is also beautiful, yet the politicians are disgusting. I would prefer this over Russia though. - MelonMan

Turkey simply... SUCKS! The people are unfriendly, racist, hostile and rude. The food is heavy and so rich in fat. The landscapes are not something to die for, like Greece or Italy for example. Overall, WORST EXPERIENCE EVER.

Only 3% of Turkey's territory is in Europe, 97% in Asia It's religion and culture is Middle-Eastern.

Since when Turkey is in Europe? :-D Anyway, all the Turkish people that I have personally known were arrogant, backward people who thought they were the best things that ever walked the face of the Earth just because they are from Turkey. Funny how they are not even aware that no one cares what they think. Also they hate Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Christians, atheists etc. They come from different ethnic backgrounds but get hostile in the name of being Turkish too just like they do when it comes to their religion. I won't spend a penny in that country. Next! :-)

Since you were absent at school, you should study better geography!

It's a love country in Europe. Driving is fine if you can handle car and traffic. Other people are some problem with Turkey.

You do not want to be male and under twelve in this country believe me!

WHY DOES THE CHURCH HAVE ITS OWN COUNTRY. Or all the priests should have vatican citizenship and don't take benefits from the country they were born. And why is the other comment about Germany and Russia

The worst country in the world they have no freedom of religion and anything non-catholic won't be tolerated.

Why this pathetic artificial thing is even a country?!

14 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.

This territory should not be under Albanian/NATO rule. Crime rate is high, the Serbs are being treated terribly, etc.

This land would be MUCH better off back under full Serb rule.

At least Kosovo actually means something special to the Serbs.

This is horrible poor and not even aloud to compete in Olympics

Peace is for the people in Kosovo an unknown word.

That is terythory of Serbia!

15 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.

This is because this country was taken by the Russians from Romania and after war the Russians let this country without money this is the true!

Moldova has to resolve issues over it's breakaway region of Transnistria.

People from Moldova are goodhearted, hardworking, peaceful and very patient... The problem with such a bad rating is: the circumstances that Moldova is dealing with... The high corruption and poverty in Moldova Is the consequence of being a part of Soviet Union... As we know most ex soviet countries have the same problems... One thing I know is the good attitude of most Moldavians, in the future Moldova will become a better place... I hope the Euro integration will help break through the iron curtain that paralyzed development in all aspects of life in Moldova... May God of Israel be With You Moldova!

I know people from Moldova and Eastern Europe and eastern European women don't like guys from Moldova, as soon as they mention they are from Moldova its Bye Bye. They have zero tolerance for them. Why is this?

Nice country (just like Romania) stolen by russians in 1812, then AGAIN in 1940. To have a good future,Moldova MUST unite with Romania as soon as possible! - IvaAstra

Nice country with nice people and an impressive ancient culture.

The goverment doesn't carry about people, they increase taxes just to get money for themselves. There are very much poor people, and nobody wants to help them.

Well I think a good country can't have the highest suicide rate in the world. And If we count, we'll see that at least 50,000 people has committed suicide since 1991. Yeah guys, this seems crazy, but it's a fact, you can check it when you want. - Fan_of_Good_Music

French are among the kindest people I have ever met and France one of the most beautiful and peaceful country I have ever visited, and even lived in.

The food is amazing, and even though there is an attitude of being somewhat cool, this country is friendly and welcoming, and does not deserve to appear in this list.

Also, French people have a sense of fashion. The accent, food and attitude of the people, along with the various monuments to visit are all factors which contribute to the fact that France is great, and is a country one must visit in his lifetime.

I'm horrified about comments I van read here.

People hating France are just mindless people who have nothing else to do to vomit on the other ones and masturbate on YouTube.

I want and will live soon in this marvelous country, far from those hating people.

Why? France is beautiful country I wanna go to France hopefully when I graduate from my university people are pretty happy there they say its rich but anyhow I'm loving to visit France right now and I can't wait to go there I feel pretty excited to go there

France have so many famous places. The Eiffel are amazing. French are gentle and nice. France needs to be out of this list. I recommend to visit France and not only Paris, there are so many funny and delicious places to be there.

French are disgusting people, directly responsable for spreading the romanian gypsy mith and ruining our image! Shame on you France! - IvaAstra

I think it's mainly the people that make Germany bad. Most of them are arrogant and rude, and have a nasty and snobbish way of dealing with things. They can also be quite selfish. Trust me, I unfortunately know quite a few Germans, and I, and lots of other people, know what they can be like

They don't care about each other. Harsh, silent, sad lobotomized people.

They act like they are open minded, but they are actually pretty racist and extremely arrogant.

In my opinion there is not a place called Germany. Bayern? Like it, Munchen especially for that it is not teutonic at all by now. Berlin? Lol what osier-like people looking at You as if still in Stasi... Saxony - fine, but...Slavic-like country, combination of Poland and Czech character - Lusatia. But everyone like to visit the richest warriors country that sits on an expats gold and shows how not to get back a war spoils.

19 Finland

I live in Finland now. People are calm, you feel really secured. Everyone is polite. All people are respected, mothers have a lot of benefits, disabled people are threated with special care. Almost everyone speaks English, you can always ask for a help, and people will actually help you. Very clean, pure environment, great!

Germany being even on this list is stupid and makes no sense at all. Germany was voted the best country and they've made a lot of mistakes in the past but they are really not proud of it but I don't think that's the reason for someone putting Germany on this list. The German people are very polite and a little bit grumpy sometimes but if you ignore the two world wars that they have started then you'll see that they did have a huge and amazing history with a lot of authors and composers such as Goethe, Beethoven, Bach etc.

I like to come there to look for a job.. I live in Poland now but my heart is telling me move to Finland but I don't known how cost of living over there

I don't think Finland deserves to be here! From Romania - IvaAstra
