Worst Countries In Europe

The Top Ten
1 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

the people are really stupid. they take pride in not knowing anything about the outside world; everything is Italy no.1 like Americans. don't expect an Italian to know basic geography or history of other nations. The education is so bad here. Schools are without any basic resources and the buildings are falling down. The place is littered with garbage, the streets are purely kept. the people are arrogant and uneducated as a result of poor government and 'trash culture' over the past 40 years. The TV is one of the worst in the world apart from 1 channel . Very racist and backward society who hate anyone. the people are often very evil and horrible. Politics is like a reality TV there. The Italian girls party too hard and don't have any basic moral standards. Obesity as well.

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

2 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

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.

Most aggresive country in Europe.They are a territorial thief, they have invaded Ukraine and are taking more of Georgia's land. Nato was formed so that Russia doesn't invade Europe.

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

1)...?

3 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.

For all you uneducated people that have clearly not don't their research need to fix up, every country is dangerous, they all have gangs suffer problems like drugs, face poverty at one point it's not just Albania. Most of you are calling Albanians stupid and racist, it's funny how you are also doing the same thing... So what we are a Muslim country or Christian country we are of the many few countries which discriminate between religions in our country. I am Albanian, raised in a perfect manor and able to communicate with every other race and have no problem with any one that's different to me, you guys clearly have been taught differently from a very young age lol. It just goes about to show how uneducated some of you are and are completely oblivious of what is going on in other countries around the world. Do your research and then state whether or not Kosovo was Serbias or not lol.

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.

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.

4 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.

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.

Why the hell is Serbia the re? It's my favorite European country! I'd love to live there during a year or more! I like their style, the cities are beautiful! Serbian soldiers are strong, they're brave, they've always defended themselves well, even thought they were often getting attacked! for those who think Croatia was better than Serbia, obviously you know nothing. Croatia was Nazi and fascist during WW2, the Croatian soldiers killed tons of Serbs and Jews and other type of people in absolutely disgusting, horrible ways. I'm very glad Serbia fought back- naturally they had to.

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.

5 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.

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.

Ukraine has so much potential after it broke away from the USSR but now it's a bad joke! If the country is a joke it should be run by a clown. I guess that's why they elected Vladimir Zelensky "the comedian" as their president. Zelensky is a mere puppet. The true rulers are a group of ultra-rich Ukrainian oligarchs who run the country from behind the scenes. They hold almost unlimited power. Recently, their parliament the "Rada" has passed the bill on land sales... bye-bye, Ukraine!

I'd rather live in Ukraine than in any country in Africa. Africa has no rich countries. Even Africa's richest country is way poorer than the poorest country in Europe.

I am from Ukraine too. It's a hellhole and everyone with half a brain is scrambling to get out & unless you have your huha to offer to some old fart from the West you are pretty much doomed, sad really.
& I'm from the capital!

Going to a club... It's run by prostitution rings so no way to get in unless your escorting
Staying at your hotel in a lounge... Be prepared to be propositioned by underage prostitutes
Average salary, around $250/month
Average pension is around $90
Average price of a 2 bedroom flat in 'ok' region $200K (no joke look it up, nicer apartments in downtown are easily over $1 mil & that's with average salary of $250/month! )
Roads are dirty & broke
Infrastructure is crap
IMPOSSIBLE to get a visa to EU even for vacation to Spain unless your bribing someone & buying that visa for $500 for 3 months only
Out of town areas are barely accessible & are pushed back in time 100 yrs (no atm's or banks or hospitals or even stores)
Public ...more

6 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.

Stolen land. Serbs are constantly harrased and forced to leave. It would be much better if it was under the Serbia's rule. It was a nice place until Albanians came

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.

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.

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.

7 Bosnia and Herzegovina Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia-Herzegovina or Bosnia & Herzegovina, abbreviated BiH or B&H, and, in short, often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in Southeastern Europe located on the Balkan Peninsula.

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.

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

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

You retard Bosnia and Herzegovina is the most beautiful of balkan and because u have serb friends from novi sad I assume they told you this because serbs hate everyone just for your information and they made one of the biggest crimes in Europe first you need to visit a country and tell your opinions not by storys you know...

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

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

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.

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

Home of the anti-christ cult the catholic church. Its 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!

9 Bulgaria Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, was established in 681 ad. and since then it never changed it's name, which makes it one of the oldest countries in Europe. Located in the Balkan Peninsula between Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Macedonia and Black Sea. The Capital of Bulgaria is Sofia, ...read more.

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.

10 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.

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

I love Romania. I was born in Romania and arrived in America at 5 years old...now I am building a villa in the capital of Transylvania and moving to Romania...this country is truly breath taking...I simply love it here plus the women here are the hottest in Europe hands down. Also keep in mind all the thieves are in the west stealing so I have nothing to worry about the crime rate is very low because all the criminals and the Mafia went in the west. When I visited I was brainwashed by western propaganda and thought Romania was going to be a country but quite the opposite it's beautiful organic foods no floride or Gmo in my food everything is cheap for the most part I just love it here.

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.

Romanians, and not gypsies are the people with the worst mentality, character, and culture in Europe. It is a very sick nations made up of rich selfish, Godless, animalistic, dirty, money minded, criminals who eat their own kind, by creating orphans, increasing the gap by the way the poor, not paying their taxes, killing their own people, sex slavery, human trafficking, extremely racist and nationalistic to all foreigners and minority groups and then flee their countries to better ones to continue crime, and pretending they are Europeans. I've lived in Romania for 5 yrs. They shouldn't be part of the EU

The Contenders
11 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. With a population of approximately ...read 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.

Poland is by far the world's worst nation.

Poles don't know how to live. They are depressed, moan and are racist and homophobic. They are dumb, stupid, uneducated, arrogant and have no class what so ever.

The schools in this nation are violent and really ran down. No one leaves education set for life. The government is so bad they only hate the gays and foreigners.

anything that's not Polish will be classified as not good.

A vile, horrible dumb nation with the most stupid people I have ever come across. Can't even spell or speak Polish. Racist as well and anti LGBT+. The place is a complete dumb filled with awful government, awful people, rude people, in-polite people, and dumbness. The country has no manners or no class. The education is appalling and people are low educated. Litter everywhere and horrible tower blocks.

12 Hungary Hungary is a sovereign state in Europe. It is situated in the Carpathian Basin and is bordered by Slovakia to the north, Romania to the east, Serbia to the south, Croatia to the southwest, Slovenia to the west, Austria to the northwest, and Ukraine to the northeast.

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.

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.

I'm originally from Hungary - yes, it's a nice country but lately it seems to go back to the 60's and 70's. The government is the worst we ever had since 1990! Well, visiting it as a tourist can be good but I'm happy that I could leave it and now I'm also just visiting (well, not the country but my relatives and friends)

Worst country in Europe with narrow-minded, selfish, rude jerks. Hope this country will disappear/collapse.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

It's all fun and games until you hear the word "food". Then, run for your life! The food is HORRIBLY DISGUSTING. I tried the salad, and I found a worm in a tomato. Eew! I payed for it, even though I didn't eat there, and I went to another restaurant, a deluxe one. Looks like I escaped from the demons and got to their leader. I ordered their "special salad" that cost a lot but there were only like, three leaves of salad, a few cucumbers and an olive. Oh and some sauce. Wow. And then, the fried potatoes were so undercooked! And the steak had blood coming out of it. I was disgusted of this crap they call "food"!

Greece is the worst country in Europe. Their economy gets worse each day the banks can't pay off their debts and the European Union gave them an offer but Greece wouldn't cooperate and then they wonder why they went broke. They're also very arrogant that is why they always blame the most powerful countries in Europe (in this case Germany) instead of thinking what they did wrong. Their history is amazing and their beaches but that doesn't change the fact that they can't take the following consequences of their actions.

15 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

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

16 Slovakia

You Will not be fined for speaking hungarian or gypsy... Police don't attack minority groups... This was posted by hungarian probably TERRIBLE!

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.

They hate the Hungarians because they want to own the country, to the Gypsies since they live without working and most of them are thieves.

Beutiful women but way too full of themselves. Needs to rid itself of that old cold war thinking. A little too self righteous and pretentious. and if your American they love to tell you whats wrong with your country.

17 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.

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.

Poorest country in europe. A total hole surrounded by 2 other crap countries. Nothing positive can be said about this 'country'. The only reason this country hasn't got more votes is because of how pointless it is

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.

18 Macedonia Macedonia borders with Greece to the south, Albania to the West, Bulgaria to the East, Serbia and Kosovo to the North. It has a population of over 2 million people which are a mixture of pure Macedonians, Albanians, and Serbians. Macedonian is the language spoken in the country. Macedonia has beautiful ...read more.

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.

Macedonia is the oldest European kingdom dating back to 900bc,recorded king Dynasty. Just open a old map of Europe,or read the bible and see for yourself. The modern day Macedonia is what left after the division of its original territory in 1913 by Serbia,Bulgaria,Greece and Albania. Greeks were the greediest and swallowed 50 percent of Macedonian territory

Macedonia is not stealing history,language,culture from any neighboring countries. Simply Macedonia existed long before the newly created neighbors and is other way around with the stealing.

Macedonians live for today,not back in to the history. Every positive attempt for the country to prosper is blocked by the same neighbors especially Greece.

Greece propaganda is going to the extreme,simply by claiming that this nation language and culture never existed.

Good luck to the all Macedonian enemies only the future and god will tell.

I traveled n experienced Macedonia for the first time in November 2012, and its so poor there money has no value here in America! The capital has very few site seeing but above all not exciting to see, the city veles is ok. I stood in a village (my husband is macedonian) n the people were nice at first, but after 2 wks of staying there, they did a 360 on me n talk bad about u, dislike you, liars, stealers, men are controlling n beat on there wives! Treat them like slaves! I feel bad for these women once they marry these men! I am in America my husband got deported in 2011 n I'm glad I am not living with him in his country! If I would say Macedonian n Serbian Men are beyond the worst controlling lying men to be with.

19 Montenegro

Beautiful country. Uneducated people. Bigots and nationalists. Violent population. Orthodox Christians majority rules the country.

Fantastic small country, so beautiful! Where Mountains and Sea meet each other!

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!

20 Kazakhstan

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.

Arrogant people, put too much ingredients in cooking

A little bit of the areas of Kazakhstan if in Europe.

21 Turkey Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is bordered by eight countries with Greece and Bulgaria to the northwest; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, ...read more.

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.

Coming from a Turkish American this country is very backwards. The people here are so nationalistic that it is rare to see any flag fly here other than the Turkish flag. Most people here are modernized but there are still those traditional Turkish families which go by the outdated mindset that the females do all the house work and the men do all the outside work (actual jobs) these people are blinded by political Islam and follow it for as long as they live which is really sad. Traffic is rampant in all the big cities. Strangely on the question of gun rights which is supposed to be strict here don't be surprised if you hear gunshots at weddings. Turkish people are very arrogant and their pride blinds them so much as though they are intolerant of other cultural beliefs most of the time and blame America for everything especially the coup attempt. Also Turks hate Europe and America because they consider them kaffir countries. Turkey are so arrogant they think the world revolves around ...more

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! :-)

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

22 Lithuania

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 ...more

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.

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..

23 Czech Republic Czechia, officially the Czech Republic, is a nation state in Central Europe bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

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.

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...

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.

Do not waste your time my friends trying to get girlfriend from there they're all prostitutes that wants money actually prague is the capital of porn republic just hit & run

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

Well you didn't still saw nothing about it it is full of stalkers who wanna know every thing about you and they are always trying to do other peoples lives theirs they care nothing about freedom and they are obsessed with money school(wanting to be better than each other) and politics and they also fight on there own religion on feasts like which is the best cause each town has it's own feast (and there are tons of reverends and all of them do nothing really do worst) any reason is good for them to fight I needed years to understand until my son came from school and told me that teachers where teaching students that they have to be the best, best then each other even children are jealous of each other(and before I went there my friend who was born in malta and lived there till age 11 told me that but I thought it was because she hated it but now I do not know what I really think about it, (i do not think that all are like that cause my friend was there really her parents are like that ...more

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.

The dirtiest island on the Mediterranean Sea. The transportation system is a joke. The stores look like they belong in URSS. The night live is like the ones seen in typical small villages in the UK but still u see the typical binge drinking and street pissing. It's the worst place in the world to learn English and the best to get syphilis. Racist people, dirty people, uneducated people. The maltese only care about the size of your wallet but if you have blonde hair they will offer u their own wife and daughters.

25 Croatia Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (independence since 1991), is a sovereign state at the crossroads of Central Europe, Southeast Europe, and the Mediterranean.

Great place if you want to go to the crystal clear waters and the dance EDM raves.

This is a very beautiful country, with very good roads, good peoples and beutiful landscapes. Must seen.

Croatia is great, people are friendly and the food is one of the worlds best, the women are beautiful and so are the beaches, anyone who says otherwise just has not seen it yet

Beautiful country, nice people, good food, excellent wine, Got to see it before you kick the bucket.
