Worst Countries In Europe
I am Italian. Unfortunately I must admit that most of what has been written here is true, at least from my personal experience. I had to literally flee the country and start a new life abroad, and I mean not to succeed in my life, but barely to survive decently. And that's not the worst. What tourists and visitors see from outside, for how nasty, is just a fraction of what you must see from inside, specially if you had the ill fate to be born there. What goes on within families, schools and various institutions is actually much worse. A cage of madmen, really. I know other people of very different ages who experienced exactly the same. Most of them had to leave for good to find a job, and as soon as they settled abroad, they started to recover a sense of dignity, mental balance, and faith in life. Sad story, really...
I was in Milan for a week because of work. Amazingly (for just a week), I fully recognize all the negative comments posted. Arrogance, disdain to foreigners, poor education, incompetence are traits of the Italian people I met. The infrastructure is poorly taken care of.
Apparently Milan is at the top of Italian cities for doing business. If this is the case, this is a country that is definitely not appropriate for hosting international events.
I will certainly avoid any type of business that could be bring me back to Italy. It goes without saying that I will also avoid spending my vacation there.
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
If you plan on driving in Italy: Don't, they are the worst drivers in the world.
I had 7 weeks of being tail gated by aggressive drivers trying to prove they all had bigger dicks by going too fast, tail gating and horn honking.
Entertainments and attractions are equal to zero.
Everything in Italy is overpriced, Italian people are lazy, the country is dirty and they are on strike every other week.
The museums are closed on Monday and other days in the year. We tried a restaurant was closed at lunch time because it was their lunch time. This country is a shame.
Keep your money and spend it somewhere else.
Russians are weak minded and arrogant. They are easily brainwashed. Case in point: The world view of Russia is in the toilet because of their land grabbing ambitions and nuclear posturing. Except Putin's approval rating is at record levels. Everyone in the world hates Russia right now. The Russian people don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.
Not even the USSR conducted nuclear posturing like Putin. In fact, they did not even come close in comparison. Putin seems to not wish to address the one source economy issues that is plaguing Russia. Instead, he would rather see to it to bring down his neighbors to his level such as Georgia and Ukraine.
Finally... How long will Putin be in power? Seems to me, he is the definition of Despot Dictator.
By far the most horrid people in in In London... Rude, arrogant, brainwashed and jealous. In holiday destinations, the worst kind of tourist: thugs with lap dancer tarty girlfriends. Hostile and miserable in their own land. Utterly blinded by their own propaganda: do you see Germans still defending Hitler? No. But Russians defend Stalin even though millions of their families died in gulags. They twist everything in history because they are fed utter biased rubbish keeping them ignorant. Corruption in business, sports management, foreign property ownership, people trafficking. Never been to a country where absolutely no-one smiles except the drunks. Made enemies of all their neighbours. Nasty thugs and heartless cold Orwellian minions.
Reasons to hate/loathe Russia
1) Basically an Orwellian dictatorship.
2) Putin is totally insane and wants to take over other countries in Europe, if not the world.
3) The Mafia controls the cities.
4) Mass starvation, worse than some African countries.
5) Russians hate every country but themselves.
6) 75% of Russians would still vote for Stalin if he was around today (0% of Germans would vote for Hitler)
7) Regularly commits crimes against humanity.
8) Supports Iran, North Korea and Syria, among other dictatorships.
9) Trying to start a real life access of evil against the US with China.
10) Occupied and enslaved half of Europe for 45 years and don't regret anything.
11) Layed the foundations for the war on terror by invading Afghanistan.
12) Food is indigestible.
13) Drunks everywhere.
14) 90% of the country is tundra/
15) They want to commit genocide against gay people.
Reasons to like Russia
Three things you need to know about Russian people:
1. Russians are poorly compatible genetic hybrid of the Mongols and the worst scum of the Ugric tribes. As a result, Russian degenerate came into existence.
2. The centuries-old impact of their national drink vodka. It is natural that if you drink it for centuries, it will change your genetics.
3. The widespread practice of incest in Russian families. They have always lived in some crowded, narrow huts. The winters were cold and there was nothing to do, other than having an incestuous sex. Thus, apparent degeneration at the genetic level.
Further research on this issue is needed.
A country that hates everyone around them and more. They want to have everything around them but when you get in their country you feel that you are in the early 1900. Still have blood vengeance, organ crimes, trafficking drugs and a lot more come from there. Presenting themselves as victim while are the biggest oppressors. Dreaming of Great Albania AND still planing to take parts of Macedonia, Serbia (already did), Greece and Montenegro.
And the mentality of the people is medieval
As I can see most of you are Serbians and its no brainer to know that Albania is worst one, but lets be realistic, there are quite a few countries in Europe worst than Albania, yes some Albanians are rude and dirty but I have seen worst, by the way in Albania there is Christians-catholic and orthodox so don't just put them all in same frame. Why don't you all point out that neighbours such as Greece and Serbia have never taken to Albania, never in centuries but always used this land for their own greed, you its very easy just to say all these negative stuff. Now if you dislike Albania and Albanians that much I suggest all of you never go there again so your souls will not be filled with so much hatered.
These people are strained in EU lord knows how, they multiply like farm animals very filthy they tried to scam me twice and they also stole my toys when I was there as child on seaside, they pretended they did not do it while playing with my toys in front of me and their mother did nothing. 25% of their population evacuated country never looking back and still fleeing spreading their crappy culture and degenerate behavior every place they go be careful.
So dirty and uncivilized. But also, were ever I went in EU there seems to be lot of problems with Albanian mafia. I can't believe that EU let them have Kosovo (it will be joined with Albania eventually). I was in Macedonia last month before I went back to Finland, and Albanians were making so much trouble there. I was surprised not to see anything on T.V. when I got back home. World is blind to see what is this country doing to everybody.
Of all countries in Europe, definitely the worst. They're the most angry, primitive, war loving, chaos loving and lying people I have ever met. Their cities are rubbish, built in the span of last 60 years out of commie blocks, with Belgrade being the most dull, gray and disgusting city I have ever saw and been into. They speak only about hatred, war and how all the World is against them - but there is a clear reason, amongst all the other wars they started, they're directly guilty for the first World war which was actually the main cause of the second World war. Their uncontrollable need of controlling everyone and everything but not having any talent or education for it, caused the wars in former Yugoslavia also. With atrocities and unseen criminal activities they even today glorify the war criminals. Many well educated and smart people from Serbia left the country forever, leaving the primitives.
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.
I believe everyone who said Serbians are arrogant, rude, selfish, liars, racist and poor are wrong. Serbia only did the things they did for their freedom, rights, tradition and religion. There is NO crime in Serbia for the time I have been there and everyone was friendly with the tourists. Everyone is kind hearted and wonderful because when my father died they offered their deepest condolences and would never leave us in tears. Serbia may have started wars but that does not mean they are racist it means they stand up for their country. People should just let go of the past.
I'm Serbian, and I really think that everyone who thinks that Serbia is the worst is horrible. They are making assumption that aren't true. I go there every summer, and it is a wonderful, beautiful place. Whatever anyone has heard about my country that is negative, they are all hearing nothing but lies. I am proud to be a Serb, and you can I now respect you, because I got fired from a job in LA because I was a Serb. But I was happy, because anyone who would make assumptions like that about a country they've never been to, really is heartless. We aren't war driven, either. We have been bombed over 59 times. All from different countries. Yet, we're still here, you know why? Because we fight to DEFEND ourselves. Never ONCE have we EVER bombed another country. fighting and killing to defend your own soil, ON YOUR OWN SOIL is not the same thing as terrorism. Thank you all for being jerks.
Still better than the richest countries in Africa. Europe is so prosperous that even its poorest countries are still much much better than even the richest countries in Africa. That's the polar opposite of Africa where it is so destitute that even its richest countries are still way poorer than even the poorest countries in Europe. Africa will always be a BIG thumbs down.
I lived in that absolute toilet of a country for roughly 4 years with my Ukrainian wife.
I regret both marrying her and living there to be sure, even if at that particular point in time it was rather convenient for me to live there.
Ukraine is a country that seems to have become so Socialized (via Socialism) or so Communized (via Communism) that no one there seems to be willing to accept any sort of responsibility for any of their actions. Therefore Ukrainian standards are indeed very low. Ukrainians tend to have an "I didn't do it," mind set, which can be very aggravating especially when it is obvious, to any honest observer of the situation, (based upon empirical data) that they are lying about whatever. By the bye, Ukrainians are pluperfect liars. No one anywhere else in the world lies as well as do Ukrainians. The people there have had to live, for such a long a period of time, with such low expectations that they seem not to try to do their best at anything. Logic and ...more
"With all my respect to Africa, Ukraine is Gabon" - governor of Odesskaya oblast
"I won't let Somali turn to Ukraine" - the president of Somali
Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe. A mixture from the Post-Soviet recession, corruption, resource economic, populist politics, civil disorders and civil war has led this deplorable country into the deep, deep misery. That's why lifelevel in this pathetic resemblance of country is now about the same as in many African countries, or even worse.Or even MUCH worse, it depends. As you see, even the president of Somali thinks that his country is better then Ukraine. Maybe that's why Ukraine, having the observer status in the African union, was never let to join it? Anyway GDP of Ukraine has fallen over 40% for the last 26 years, and the future of this piece of crap looks bleak. Really bleak, though.
I usually love to travel to Europe, but as a country like Ukraine, it is the most unfriendliest, the most unwelcoming countries in the entire world. This country has racist people, (I know others do too) and all they do make faces as us when we try to welcome them. They also compare (not the government), but the people of Russia with the most evilest things in the world like Hitler. If you are a tourist going to Europe, I recommend you stay far away from Ukraine.
Kosovo shouldn't even exist. Albanians invaded the region so they could break it off of Serbia and increase Albanian control. The only reason why they want it to be its own country is because they don't want to start another Balkan war. That's bull. Kosovo is Serbian land, and the Albanians living there should be deported back to Albania. Albania's population is low anyway, so it wouldn't make much of a difference.
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.
That isn't country that is terythory of Serbia and will be always!
Serbia saved ass of Britain, France and another country in I and II World War and now how they talking about us, "Serbia is the worst"
No Serbia is the best country we are not poor I love Serbia and all Serbs will be united again in Dusan Empire or Big Ilirya!
Serbs read Bible and God will save us!
Kosovo is pretty country. This country is approximately as big as Connecticut, majoritu of population are ethnic Albanians. Kosovo the newest country in Europe declared its independence on 2008. Serbia killed lots of Albanians and still claiming that Kosovo is part of Serbia. On 1999 there was ethnic cleansing where nearly 1 million Albanians were driven away from their country. Don't believe in these comments that Albanians are killing servs, this a fake, if NATO and USA didn't help kosovars they will never join the freedom. They drsrve to be strong independent and join the EU.
LONGLIFE REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO.
Shallow people that belong to medieval Europe. They hate each other and every other nation in the world. They are polite only when they think that you have money. They believe in superstition and witchcraft. It's a paradise for corrupted politicians because people doesn't have critical thinking and they vote for thieves every election. Their patriotism is fake, if they had a chance they would rob their own national treasure. It's an artificial country that cannot sustain itself. It is more a school project than a real country. People are lazy, they only want to drink coffee all day and they are proud of it.
This is THE worst country in the world and it should be on number 1. People suck, people are stupid and retarded there, they hate everything in the world and the only people to not be friends with. This country sucks and you need to be a drug adict, killer, to act like tough guy, to do crimes and to bully everyone and to beat up children, kids and other people to have friends and girlfriend. There aren't even medicines to buy here, everything is filthy, everyone is filthy here, rats walk everywhere, full of garbage, public transportation is THE worst here, when you enter in a bus or tram it smells like someone peed on in it, vehicles are full of names written on the walls and on the roof, people spit infront of you when you walk along the street, everyone yells here speeks loudly, bullies everyone, people and parents abuse children a lot. People in this " country " trust bad people and bad children more than the good children. Nobody respects kids and joung people. They are ...more
I am from Bosnia and it sucks! Politicians are liars and thieves! Salaries are small,public transportation is so horrible! Most of people are homophobic and crazy nationalists. If you are gay or an atheist you will be judged every day (and most people didn't read Bible or Koran -.-"). Most of people are just stupid and primitive. Not all people,there are really smart and kind people of course.
Bosnia is a beautiful country filled with many stupid people! Simple as beans!
A bunch of racists that think they're the best. They hate Serbia they hate Croatia they hate everyone. This country should be split between Serbia and Croatia. West to Croatia and east (which is officially called Serbian republic) to Serbia. Even on flag you see it's made up country with the help from EU just like Kosovo
Why is this allowed to exist, let alone be recognized by the United Nations. After all, even if you get past this "country's" theocratic nature, undemocratic tendencies, widespread corruption, illegal control over Italian politics, brutal security force, rampant homophobia and complete isolation from reality, it is TINY. It would fit comfortably into central park and still leave plenty of room for the merry go round and the zoo.
Vatican: No children being born there, no old people dying there, no schools/kindergardens (hopefully), no families, citizenship is always temporary, no faith-independant citizenship, no own currency, no police (only security guards, they actually turn over caught criminals to Italian police), no military, no real economy other than museums BUT recognized by the UN. Taiwan: Has all of the above except being recognized by the UN, what a weird world... If that's a country then I feel ashamed for being a human
Home of the anti-christ cult the catholic church. It's so sick how after so many sex abuse scandals and the amount of tax they take from italian citizens, italians still believe this filthy misreable graveyard organisation represents Jesus and Mary!
Pathetic excuse for power. Funny how the pope is one of the richest people in the entire world but, we never see him giving too the poor or needy. It's easy to preach from a golden throne.
Bulgaria is indeed a wonderful country in the Balkan pennynsula. And the Balkan is magician too.I don't think Bulgaria is a bad place because it has beautiful nature and unique places. (Black Sea, Sofia)
People are nice, friendly and helpful. Most of them are Slavs and tracian but there are some turks from the Ottoman era. I know Bulgaria suffered and suffering from difficult problems. ( corruption, economy, migrant invasion, the former destructive communism in soviet era)
Slavic brothers and sisters I know you have hard times but I pray for you and wish you better times! GOD bless and save you!
Beautiful country with extremely corrupted MAFIA government which destroys everything in the country - judicial system ( highly corrupted, controlled by the MAFIA government), medical system ( no money for it, corrupted, medical staff under payed and often neglect their responsibility);
journalism ( corrupted, controlled by the MAFIA government), education ( corrupted, inefficient, unmotivated teachers)...
A huge amount of Bulgarians go abroad and never come back...
Bulgaria is definitely the worst country in Europe. People are extremely unhappy, unfriendly and uneducated. A lot of them don't even know English. Bulgarian people use many inappropriate slangs. It's a very rare case to meet a nice Bulgarian. Sometimes I walk down the streets and smile at some people, while they look at you even more evil.
Amazing climate (4 seasons) and ski and sea resorts, fantastic mountains, party center with wild night life (Sofia, Varna, Golden Beach). The food is totally delicious and people are hospitable and friendly. They also have precious culture and free spirits! People are white cacausins - mainly slavs and tracians.
I never had any problems living here. Crime rates are low, and in general if you mind your own business nothing can go wrong. People are sometimes nervous expecially where there are traffic jams. But in general it was a good experience. Most people speak english quite well, and they help in case you get lost. It's a developing country but not like BBC or CNN portrait it. You can find anything here, from a high budget to a low one, the food prices are same as in the West but in general in remains a cheap budget country. It's also a great option if you are not a fan of refugees. No one is here.
I grew up in Transylvania (which we call Ardeal and no it does not have any connections with Dracula, it's all in a film director's spoiled fantasy) and the older I get the more I miss it. I arrived in uk a long time ago when it was still civilised (the weather was still dreadful) but nowadays it's getting worse every day. Yes I would go back, uk is incredibly ruined by some abusive immigrants (like the ones who have no respect for the culture. ) besides, There is no culture left in many parts of uk, such a shame, I wonder why this nation s government have decided to hand over their country to anyone willing to trample all over it?!
Am American from the deep South, (Louisiana state) and I think Romania is the coolest nation in all of Europe. I don't know why everyone is hating on Romania. Romanians are some of the nicest people ever. They have very pretty women too. Compared to Poland, I would rather go to Romania. Remember Nadia Comaneci? Very nice, awesome bod. The women are some of the most beautiful. Polish women are overrated and all look the same. Probably the most overlooked and underappreciated nation in Europe. Sure, the economy is poor; but this is Eastern Europe. They've faced economic hardship from their neighbors and oppressors. (collapse or Russia and Yugoslavia, also Hungarian nationalists trying to steal their land.)
People always like to do a Poland vs. Romania competition for best Eastern European country. Poland usually wins; I think these people are insane and Romania is 10x better.
Romania is GREAT, but you need to understand life there. The wages are too low and it causes everyone to struggle immensely. People constantly struggle to pay rent and get food, it is sad and I hope it improves soon. There is a HUGE amount of corruption in the government, where they hire family members and siphon public funds away.
The most dangerous thing about Romania is that a LOT of people there are very very deceitful. Some are compulsive lifelong liars. I am still studying this phenomenon when I visit there (I travel there every year), but in the communist times of the securitate (secret police)... people were told not to trust anyone, anyone could be an informant. It created a culture of distrust and that persists STRONGLY today, the people from that time are still alive and raising children. Romanians screw each other over regularly, people don't seem to keep long term friends (of course they might know a couple good people, but the density of their trusted friend ...more
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.
You want to know what I thin as an America from the South? I have French ancestry. And if it's not Albania, Italy, Spain or even France that sucks the most in Europe; it is Poland. This is the absolute worst country in Europe. Cold people, have no sense of humor; are brainless. (even though people say they are smart), they hate themselves and other people are often violent. What kind of migrants for the USA do we want? Not this lot. We already have a Mexican, Indian (from India) and a Black people problem. Polish, just cause you're white, don't even think about it.
Poland is my homeland and I know history of this country. So I love this place and I have a message to outsiders who can only complain how ugly or bad Poland is - you know nothing, you are ignorant and instead of waisting you time on wearing fashionable clothes and dating better buy a lot of historical books and start to learn. It will take you a few years. Talk to many different Polish people, ask them what do they think and feel. And then you will have right to complain about this country! But then you will not like to complain anymore.
Country full of hateful idiots who hate all their neighbooring countries for stuff that happened 100 years ago.
If a hungarian notices you are either serbian, romanian or slovakian for example he'll instantly start cursing and riddiculing you over the Treaty of Trianon.
These people have medieval mentality, they still want to rule over lands they had centuries ago that have very small numbers of hungarians in the modern day.
Racism and facist is very high there, and the scenery is not beautiful at all.
It's just a random mass of land with some cities built on it and a small lake in the middle.
Also, if you are a football fan and if your country will have a match there, I recommend not going.
Hungarian fans are known in the football world as a bunch of violent, retarded brutes that vandalize random property wherever they go and attack rival groups of fans with flares and firecrackeres.
Overall not a good country to go to.
1) The police is racist, they might bring you to jail or expel from country if you cut the double border fence or you want throw stones at them and you have no passport or visa.
2) Its disgusting that you might come from a war zone on mama Merkels invitation and you cross eleven non-war countries just to realize you have to finish your trip at this country, boycott this nasty country we want Germoney.
3) The girls are so ugly they are all over in quality porn movies.
Tourists just see the beautiful places, and the beautifulness of Budapest, and actually they have no idea what is it like living here. They don't see the Hungarian reality. 1/3 of the population lives below subsistence wage. The government is corrupt as hell. Families are often dysfunctional, and this is just basic stuff.
Beautiful country with beautiful people, highly educated, friendly. My best vacation ever I spent in Hungary. Food is incredibly tasty and cheap. Budapest is marvellous, especially the panorama over the Danube from the hills of Buda. Rich history, nice architecture. Racism is not true. And 9 out of 10 women are really beautiful.
Nothing to do. Nothing to see. Food is bad. The country is controlled by a dictator who locks up or kills his opponents. It's a pain just to get in. The Southern part is covered in radiation from Chernobyl. The people can be racist, homophobic, etc. It's just really dull, but I have met many nice people who are welcoming to outsiders, and I have nothing against them.
The only reason this country is not higher on the list is because no one goes there. The people are truly awful. A small percentage are amazing, but thinking that everyone is like that will get you in big trouble. Safer to trust no one in this country. Safer just to avoid. Go to Scandinavia instead, even if you can't afford it. This country will cost you more in money they steal from you.
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.
Definitely one of the worst countries in Europe. I am pretty sure that this country is totally corrupted that has a problem with the Soviet Empire. This country has very little to no press on freedom, and there is almost nothing good on tourism.
I have to agree with the people who commented about ancient Greece. Ancient Greece was great, democracy civilization, science, philosophy, we owe a lot to Greece. On the other hand though Greece nowadays is going downhill. If you have visited Greece you'll probably disagree and say ; Greece is great, people are really kind, the food awesome, the weather is awesome and the beaches are beautiful. And I'll agree with you, Greece is great but only for holidays. Try actually living there for 6 months and you'll understand. The people are not as kind as you think, in reality they are rude, racist and lazy. Food is great but that is if you have money to eat, as the economy of the country is destroyed. But the main reason I believe Greece is an awful country to live at is that in this country you can't have dreams. Whatever dream you have is going to crumble on the floor as this country can not support it. That's why anyone who has dreams, wants a future, wants to be someone gets out here, ...more
Definitely the worst country in Europe, potentially on the planet, a drain on the EU where the people feel they are all 'victims'. Government doesn't know how to run a country, people retiring on full pensions at age 25 (well maybe 55). Men think they are something special, even though they are in their 30's working as waiters and women are just lazy and rude. Food is like slop but they greedily gorge constantly which is why they have one of the fattest populations in the world.
People almost have a sense of entitlement here and loathe tourists even though tourism is probably the only thing that funds and props the country up. The economy was clearly going to collapse but no one seemed to care until it did, when they came begging Europe with the hands out.
Should have kicked them out the EU and left them to rot and their pool of hummus and poorly planned pensions schemes.
Not sure why Eastern European countries are on here they are great, only left communism in ...more
Greece is a great country to vacation in during the summer... but don't get me started on the government. And the obnoxious British tourists and backpackers. I think it's way better than Italy in terms of travel.
Greece will always be the center of the best strategic point in Europe!
This is why Turkey is in Cyprus!
How do you bring a country to control?
You hit them in their financial pocket!
But guess what; Greece is one of the hardest country to control. (A Us president said that. )
After 600 years of slavery from the turks ottoman empire, Greece will never put its head down to anyone!
Is Greece a racist?
Well, no but prejudice: meaning all you Albanians and all other foreighners came to Greece for shelter, because your countries are poor and don't know what it means to enjoy life, and work like a human being not a slave. So get out of Greece which you have destroyed the economy and go back to your rich country. No one invited all you poor son of bitc&s! All you did was bring poverty and crime!
Greece will survive as it always has and Macedonia, Alexander the Great is Greek and will always be GREEK!
For all of you saying Azerbaijan is not European, it kind of is due to some sort of European border which I have no idea about (Otherwise Russia is basically not European either, as only the western part is... So if Azerbaijan is 'classed' as European, then so goes for Israel, Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Ok I'll stop babbling...)
This country is a very horrible country, in certain places. Building walls to prevent competing nations in the 1st European Games from seeing all the awful poverty near Baku (So I herd) With a beautiful structure known as to The Flame Towers looks so great! Thank god it's a distraction from the semi-crap poor housing. Some are beautiful, but let's face it, the majority look like the cheap and god awful council houses in the UK. Not only is the population noted for selfish excuses for humans, but seriously lack kindness and compassion. 'Murderer' DNA engraved into there stupid heads (So I've herd). A country with such a crap government and a ...more
Hey you. You need to read little bit about history. Write on the internet khojaly war and then click on images. Yo''ll see blood and dead peoples. Do you know how many peoples died in that war. About one million or more. And its because of Russia and Armenia. Abot environment Azerbaian started to developing newly. Azerbaijan is in EuroAsia. Azerbaijan held European Games. Which means Europe agreed that Azerbaijan is Eastern European country. No one has rule to tell bad words about othr countries. Plus about walls Azerbijan did their best to held European games. But government didn't know about the materials of walls. Every country has their own problems. And Azerbaijan is from the safest countries in the Europe and Asia. I believe you've never been in Azerbaijan. Because I am 11 years old and I know English perfect. My country opens many schools and makes peoples live comfortable life. So you are no one to talk aboutthe counry that you've never been in. Don't be racist.
Azerbaijan is a nice country however in my opinion they belong to Iran as they were stolen from Iran by Russia and never returned. Great people and scenery however there government are just spies put between Russia and Iran. Not to mention there culture is essentially a copy of Iran's with Russian influences.
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!
Racist, horrible backwards hole. People there are very ignorant and act like they are inbred. I'm Slovakian lady living abroad and I'm married to a wonderful black man for over fifteen years. Living abroad made me realize even further what a nasty place Slovakia is and I'm glad that I have the opportunity to live in the country where people from all over the world get along. Majority of people in Slovakia are trailer trash but they still feel superior to black, Asian, mixed people etc.
There are so many beautiful places in the world, why visit Slovakia? Only decent thing there is nature but you can get that in lots of places. Food is ok as well. Some of it.
Visit if you want but you might regret it.
Of cource we hate Hungarians, because as Slovakia was a part of the Austro-Hungarian empire we couldn't even share the idea of creating Slovakia, many people were jailed for sharing this idea. If a kid said something in Slovak at school, the teacher beat him, and at least at WW2 they attacked us and took half of our country.
And then we have Roma people. I don't say that every Roma is bad, I know many good Roma, but many of them are lazy people who don't go to school or work and mostly when I watch news there is this sentence: A retiree was beaten by teenagers almost every time the teenagers are Roma.
Pretty nature, but I have to say, they have a lot of hate going on in this country. Much like Romania, they don't like Roma, or Hungarians. Not even they know why they don't like Hungarians. You will be fined for speaking Hungarian or gypsy language, but English is fine. How screwed up is this? The riot police love to attack minority groups. It is screwed up, and there are no equal rights between Slovaks and minority groups. It's got to be the most chauvinistic country, alongside Romania. Terrible discrimination. TERRIBLE.
About the grandad, do you realize that this country is younger just because of the Czechoslovakian "split? "Except that, it is way older and it is known for the fact that people have lived there already thousands of years ago. And also, slovaks have many reasons to discriminate the gypsies and hungarians-and if you don't agree- check the history for hungarians, and presence for gypsies. Trust me, you will find more reasons that you can even count. Sorry for my bad English-I'm not an English speaker!
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!
Moldova is better to live in than any country in Africa. Africa's richer countries are still dirt poor. People only say Moldova is poor because it's the poorest country in Europe. Compared to the rest of the world, Moldova is one of the world's richest countries.
Even though there are African countries "richer" than Moldova, it doesn't mean that it's better to live in those countries than Moldova. At least Moldova doesn't have any epidemic or hunger like those "richer" African countries.
THere is not much to see or to do there, apart from wine tasting. No resources, no money, no future, that why most people are fleeing the country. It can't stand alone as a state so it should have been a part of a bigger entity.
I am Macedonian, but I'm from America. It is such a beautiful country over there. Everyone is so welcoming and and there is so much history. Sure the government needs to step up on their game, but it's an amazing place. Macedonia is probably one of the best countries to visit in the Balkans. I have Greeks in my family and they don't act like the ones in Greece. Now, "you" Greeks that talk crap need to sit down and be quiet because you did nothing but just take the land and say that there is no such thing as Macedonians? what? Seriously, I think that you should try to read history books with the PROPER info.
Wow look what we got over here! We got a hater! Let me tell you something gyro boy, that's the name that you want us to go by because you think you own us and that we're Greeks...ha! You wish we were. May I remind you that all of Europe has to put in all the money that they've earned over the years to help you people from bankruptcy, and where Macedonia has never had that problem? And they're not even in the EU! So think before you say cause when you run your mouth, that just shows you're ignorant.
Populated mostly by Bulgarian monkeys that think they're the descendants of Alexander the Great, even though their ancestors didn't arrive in the area for 700 years after his death. The rest of them are Albanian gangsters, gypsy thieves and a few Turks. Obsessed with pseudo-historical and pseudo-scientific ideas and in complete denial about their true origins. And it's called FYROM, or the Skopje Republic, by the way.
Not gonna talk about greeks or something.. Just gonna talk positivly. I am from britain was in Macedonia 3 days (7 days in Greece) and I must say those 3 days were the best of my holiday. It was so cheap Skopje it was great. The goverment is doing some project that will end in 2014. Rebuliding the city...
I don't know what is the problem with that woman all the people were nice I got cousing living there and it is really nice. Yes, some woman are slaves to their man but that happens in every country maybe like 1percent.
Beautiful country. Uneducated people. Bigots and nationalists. Violent population. Orthodox Christians majority rules the country.
Best country in the world, better then it's neighbors, except maybe Croatia. Very friendly people!
Have never been in such an amazing and underrated country, I will visit it again soon!
Fantastic small country, so beautiful! Where Mountains and Sea meet each other!
Kazakhs are Asian tribe with a Turkic, the most unpleasant to one's ear, language. They are 0% European and 100% (Central) Asian. The 1% of Kazakhstan that geographically is in "Europe" does not count as Europe at all. There is Kalmykia Republic 100% in "Europe" (Russian Federation), who are Mongols. Not everything that's in Europe is Europe. For example, Tatarstan, is not European, it is Turkic, such as Turkey. So is Bashkortostan and Azerbaijan = Turkic, non-European, (partially) located in Europe. Kazakhstan seems to have tinsel-town culture more than anything else.
A little bit of the areas of Kazakhstan if in Europe.
A little bit of the areas in Kazakhstan is in Europe.
A little bit of Kazakhstan is actually in Europe.
When I visited Turkey in June/July 2012, I found it to be a decent country. I found Istanbul one of the greatest cities that I've been to, and it is very cultured. I admired the dazzling Muslim architecture, Turkish pop is amazing, with Tarkan's music being a fusion of pop and R&B, and the landscapes were beautiful. The caves of Cappadocia were a good enough tourist trap, but I adored the Mediterranean and Black Sea coasts. However, I had some problems in this country. When I walked the streets of Istanbul, most people gave me dirty looks because I was part American. Most people were nice enough, but those people... God. It's tough to be an American or British tourist in this city! Anyway, alright country, I just wished there could have been more.
Womanizers, fanatics, uneducated, short and uncultured. The Ottomans did nothing but butcher half the balkans and send Greece and its neighbors to poverty and despair. They killed 1.5 million Armenians and are in denial of it. Today they support ISIS and have 20 million Kurds reside in their country and live like 2nd class citizens. They deny their use of language and right to form their own country despite having lived there much longer than them. They violate Greek national waters and airspace and have threaten Greece to war for their right to extend their nautical miles from 6 to 12. Everything beautiful in Turkey from Agia Sophia to Izmir and all the historic buildings belonged to the Greeks which today they advertise as their own. Come to think of it what amenities did the Turks built? Erdogan is a wolf who wants to send Turkey back 50 years
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! :-)
Turkey has great history which would put it in top 5 locations in the world to visit.
Turkey is the 15th biggest economy.
There are 30 million tourist visiting it making it coming after France, Spain, China and USA.
Turkey has a big kitchen influenced from arabs, balcans, greeks, caucassins and turkish food.
Istanbul is capital of 2 Empires in history and many other states.
Turkish people are 'believe it or not' the most hospitable people in the world. Currently I live in France and I would bet anything to proove this
Self-absorbed, toxic, xenophobic, corrupt, evil, these are the words I would describe Lithuania with... This country like probably many other Eastern European countries may appear nicer on the surface, than it actually is... I was born in this country and I deeply regret it, growing up was constant torture of bulling and despair, never had any friends and still don't. People here are absolute drones to the point they could be called hive mind, anything or anyone who dares to stray from convention is mocked and there will be attempts made to put down the unconventional. Politics are the same no matter what political party you will chose. in general most policies focused on bossiness interests and little on people, there are no draconian policies, and non are needed it seems since people are like I said "drones" they will just mindlessly rant about politicians and don't do anything about it... For anyone who wants to see developing anarcho-capitalism dystopia Lithuania is the place to ...more
Lithuania has a VERY rich history, oldest language in Europe and one of the oldest in the world. that's right! You're reading Lithuanian language this very moment. Was the biggest country in Europe, and hate slavs. no, Lithuanians are not slavs - they're Baltic. Not Eastern - Northern or Central. Why central? Lithuania is the geographical center of Europe. Why Northern? Most of Lithuania is in the Northern side.It's economy is rising really fast and it has LOTS of great views and places. I love this country and hope that one day it will reach up with other countries! Oh and why is it poor? Well Lithuania regained their independence in 1992 (first country to do so from USSR) Then the whole soviet union collapsed. So its about 40-50 years late on economy. Thanks for your time reading!
Jealous and almost always angry people. Beautiful place to die if you have a nice pension. If you are a young person without rich parents, should avoid this place, unless you are traveling through it. It's has nice sights, rich history but not a good place to live with thoughts for future..
I hate when people think thath bacause we have the highest suicide rate means we are the worst. We lithuanian just are very sensitive people. If you noticed people staring if you are a diffrente race, mostly stare out of curiosity, our goverment might be bad but thath doesn't mean all of us are bad. If you live in a city or a small village you can see all the beautifull things about lithuania and not look at all the bad things. Be possitive and look to the bright side.
Dull. Dull, dull and, well, dull. Boring. Nothing going on, nothing to do other than getting drunk. Couple big cities, and tenth rest are either villages with bored people in them drinking themselves to death, or heavy polluted, very polluted industrial s-holes with sick people all over it. Lying and cheating everywhere, with everything. Racism and backwardness, as in general attitude that anyone who's not Czech is not good, is making a mess or stealing their jobs and their women. There's more jobs and money going on than Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine, but still it is a tremendous s-hole.
Super rude people. Everywhere in prague. Hotel receptionist in prague 1 centre hotel are the worst. The sales ladies in paladium all of theme! I have been there 2015 this year, unfriendly, they hate foreigner. That was my first travel to prague and probly the last. Me and my friends were happy to fly back home to our country.
Beautiful country with wonderful history-no religion is just due to communism- and now I would personally say that people are just scared to say whether they are religious or not-racism- however I can understand why, many times, czechs act the way they do towards gypsies- most of them want to kick them out of their country and get them set up their own country somewhere far away from them- great beer! And especially, the most beautiful women...
I have spent there almost 2 years and when I was moving out I promised myself never again to get close to Czech border.
A horrible place full of smoking and drunk simpletons!
This filthy island called malta should be listed ''first'' as the worst country and worst society in the world! maltese people are disgustingly arrogant, closed minded, rude, racist, xenophobic, boring, annoying stalkers and the list goes on! I cannot even begin to describe how horrible it feels to live here on this tiny mold of a rock filled with these ratchet maltese turds! and its feels like a terrible far cry compared to other countries, because lets face it, maltese society is a disgrace to the whole world and I really wish one fine day maltese people become completely extinct! the world would look and be such a better place!
Studying abroad here... Worst decision ever made! People here are so rude and DUMB! I swear the university is for retards! Nothing is organized and everyone is lazy as HELL. Dirty disgusting place low sanitation. Nothing here is worth seeing and I am sad I learned this the hard way. Most pointless 5 months of my entire life. I would rather eat 10 plates of dog crap than spend another day on this medieval backwards joke of an island.
Malta has among the friendliest people I know, Maltese people have always been kind and friendly to me, the free school and health care is very good because image you are 18 and you have a big loan to cover because you need to learn in University. Doesn't happen here. Also, good thing is that nowhere in Malta is very far. Every village has its own feast and the feasts are amazing
Boring and nothing to do here.
Only things you can do is work or party (which as hell I sure don't).
The living expenses are cheap and the tax rate is one of the cheapest in the world, sadly the primitive mindset of the Maltese and the lack of activities the country presents make it one of the most, if not the most boring country in the world.
Croatia lacks natural vibe and spirit.I has beautiful landscape and the Adriatic Sea.it Is catholic and bit cold. However I spent about 10 holidays in Croatia.,Playing guitar and mingling wit beech parties and after party's,I find Croatians to be friendly but still bit cold and not Balkan spirited. As I always did I consider them to be my nice neighbouring nation and would love to go back on Holliday.
Greetings from Macedonia
Croatia has its flaws like every other country. But all in all it is a wonderful country. People are friendly, food is great, clean enviroment, beautiful women and the sea. Oh and the party never stops.
People are rude, everything is expensive and full of arrogant tourists. The beaches are rocky and crowded, the sea is polluted. The nature is not very nice.
Beautiful country, nice people, good food, excellent wine, Got to see it before you kick the bucket.
