I'm from Macedonia and I can say the people are rude and they all think there better than you. The country is broke and run down and I don't think it will ever recover.


Beauthiful country for visiting and living there. Cheap food and great predispositions for tourism.

It is so poor and stole greek history and is so small that it feels like there are 1 trillion gypsies

23 Iceland Iceland Iceland, also called the Republic of Iceland, is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. It is known as the most peaceful country on earth.

What is Iceland doing on the worst list?

Iceland is clean, beautiful and awesome this is crazy

Why is Iceland on the list?

Uh... Seriously? Iceland is ranked NUMBER 1 PEACEFUL on the GLOBAL PEACE Index. I mean like there's not many ice there, bananas thanks to volcanoes can still grow, hot springs, being Nordic, name it, it's all good? I mean, whoever put Iceland wasn't even trying.

Peaceful country but boring

24 Estonia Estonia

What Is Estonia doing in this list? I'm Estonian, and yes, maybe our country is not best, but still... I can't believe someone actually voted Estonia for the worst. Our children get free lunch at school, we have democracy, we have pretty good education and beautiful nature... The list goes on and on, why Estonia does not deserve to be in this list.

Democracy, democracy, democracy...(Its all a bull, if we speak about this Country).

People are getting low salaries, most of the cities don't have any normal job for educated people. You can clearly see some racism from native people to other nations. A student can't even finish he's studies in University, he might be token to army on 3-4 study year.

No money, no jobs and Estonia doesn't even have own bank. Government is lying to Europe that people here have good salary. Seniors are left to die. And lastly, Estonians are mean and bad.

Democracy,democracy,democracy...(its all lies).
People with good education can't find any good job. (Salaries are really small). Most of the native people are racist to foreigners.
If you are a student, you may be token from University on you'r last education year to army for emergency service.(How is this democracy? )
And yeah, it mostly rains here.

25 France France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

We cannot agree that France even in this list, we are no living here for more than 7 years.
And we have lived in more than 12 countries (5 in Europe) and visited much many.

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

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

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

Great and beautiful country and people. And France reminds me my native USA but in smaller and everything closer.

There's nothing wrong with France, I happen to love the French people, there been USA allies every since fighting England (which is the worst) and have very attractive women

26 Slovenia Slovenia Slovenia, officially the Republic of Slovenia, is a nation state in southern Central Europe, located at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes.

Worst country. People are totally rude and out of mind. Horrible way of thinking. I have never met people who do not appreciate anything. They care only about themselves. The should stay poor. Although country is beautiful but I wouldn't spend not even one euro over there.

In my opinion, it's one of most beautiful countries with good quality of life.

WHY is this here? I live in this country and I love it!

Terrible people,rude people, cold people,...bljuaaak

27 Lithuania Lithuania

It is one of the worst places to live in. Especially for intelligent, ambitious expats that come here seeing the opportunistic resources it has. It will be a total waste of your time to be here because of the unwillingness of the locals to entertain anything that requires them to put the slightest of effort. Couruption is a standard in any company or organisation here. Moreover, the laws here are made in such a way that it totally ristricts the country to develop economically or socially. No wonder there are so small salaries and economic development totally disproportional to the vast resources Lithuania really has.

I live in Lithuania and I can say one thing this country suck

This country sucks

What can I say, finished university, found (with a lot of difficulties) a job which pays 350-400 per month. Right now live with a grandma (and get loads of critique for it). The thing is, wanted to rent a 1 room apartment, the cheapest I found was 150 per month without taxes :D When I asked about a temporary loan for apartament was told there is no way to help me with my salary and got a joke that I should marry.. That's basic situation in LT unless you have friends-family in good places or rich parents.

28 Luxemburg

Spelled wrong, it's Luxembourg - Joansb

Price is too expensive.

1, it's spelled Luxembourg, 2 it's a horrible place to live since they tried to start war with the swiss, and 3 EU


29 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

Germany should not be one here, we had a terrible past yes, but we turned our thinking around. We are one of the leading economy's of the world, we are giving shelter to the most refugees in Europe. So people who talk bad about Germany should look at their own country and compare it to Germany, I am pretty sure Germany has archived a lot more good things.

How is Germany bad when it is one the most popular countries in the world. and why. just because we were Nazi's (i'm part German by the way) but that's a dumb misconception because the government were corrupt! Yes we did horrible stuff but that's because that sicko Hitler commanded us to or we would get killed! So who says Germans are terrible Nazis shallget tortured die then rot in hell for eternity

Interesting one sicko Hitler forced all other 80 million Germans to start killing, otherwise he will kill them. That was terrible

Maybe south of Germany is bad... they are too cold, haughty and they are like a big fish in a little pond.

Germany is one of the world's best countries, despite theit horrible past... they turned it around... for the better, way better

30 Ireland Ireland Formed in 1916 after the Easter uprising, Ireland is a small country with a population of roughly 5 million.

I just feel bad for them. They don't know any better. There only claim is the landscape is beautiful...is there a place Europe that doesn't have beauty? This country is for you if you want to get drunk and piss in the street or find cheap drugs

We are one of the richest countries in the world. We have so much freedom. Good healthcare (free) and same with education. Ireland is not a bad country to live in. It's also neutral which means we won't have a war. The people here are very kind.

What the heck? Ireland is a beautiful country. People are nice, the culture is so unique and awesome. PEOPLE don't LISTEN TO THIS GUY Ireland IS IN MY OPINION THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD

Probably a great country to visit or holiday in, but if your born here like I was you will face oppression from every aspect of this failed society until you can escape

The nature is ugly and the people are annoying.

I'm from here. I don't like a couple of parts of the people. Apart from that, pretty ok country for me.

37 Greenland Greenland Greenland is an autonomous country within the Danish Realm, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

What the fluff is Greenland doing on an European list?

It's is not bad or good it's just ice

Wait, what is Greenland doing here? I thought it was part of North America

Greenland is on here because it is a Danish TERRITIRY, not a COUNTRY

38 Liechtenstein
