No 4: London
You might not expect London to be in the list of most dangerous cities of Europe but it is definitely one of them. First of all it is one of the biggest cities in Europe, if not the biggest. There are a lot of people living on the streets and they know YOU are a wealthy tourist.
There also is a big political tension in Great Britain. It is planning to leave the European Union, also called Brexit, but parliament can’t get it done in time. There are a ton of demonstrations about this and they are very passionate about it. Make sure you stay away from these demonstrations!
No 3: Paris
Paris is definitely one of the dangerous cities in Europe. It is a huge city with a lot of people living on the streets. More so than in London. There are massive sections of the city’s where immigrants are living.
This is not something you want to see on your next vacation! There are a lot of beggars, pick-pockets and scammers around.
Paris has also been subject of many terrorist events in the past few years. It is a popular target!
No 2: Budapest Hungary
Budapest has a beautiful city center. The Parliament is one of the continents most stunning government buildings, the bridges are beautiful to walk on and the Mattheus Church is simply mind blowing.
Yet there is a serious risk when visiting Budapest in 2019. The populist leader Viktor Orbán is very controversial. There is a lot of political tension in the city! One of the most touristic regions have been the scene of political demonstration. Recently a university was closed. This resulted in massive fights between the government and the liberal youth of the city.
No 1: Kiev Ukraine
Kiev is a little different than other cities in Europe. The police is way more strict than in any other city in Europe! When visiting Kiev make sure you always cary your pasport! The traffic police in Kiev is known for being corrupt. The often stop drivers to solicit bribes.
When you visit Kiev you must be aware that there are a lot of scammers. More than in any other city in Europe. Make sure you check ATM machines before putting your credit card or debit card in it. Never exchange money with people on the street.
