AN American travel website has ranked European countries from best to worst – and the UK comes off badly as experts slammed the “drab” food and rubbish weather.
Joining Britain in the bottom five of Far & Wide‘s destination list are Vatican City, Russia, Belarus and Monaco.

Britain was bumped to number 40 out of the 44 official countries in Europe.
The site’s experts said they wonder “why anyone would want to visit this place, let alone live there.”
They allege British food is “drab” and the “weather is even worse”.
The abuse continues: “They serve beer at room temp…Oh, and a certain current political situation has the country in a state of complete and utter disarray.”
Vatican City came in last place, with the site dismissing it as “too crowded” and full of “sweaty bodies” with camera phones.
Russia is relegated to almost-bottom because of “Vlad” and Monaco is declared far too rich.
Denmark nabbed the top spot, due to its “overall quality of life” followed by Portugal, Greece, Spain and Poland.
Far & Wide’s super-ranking of Poland seems to solely be down to the fact that the Eastern European country is responsible for the bagel, it’s cheap and it’s apparently “on no one’s radar.”
Around 500,000 Brits visited Poland in 2016.
Missing out on top ten spots were Croatia, France, Norway and Malta.
France comes in at 15 because the French “deserve to be put in their place”.

The reasoning goes: “France has everything and always will, which is terribly frustrating.
“Sure, the food is perfection, the art scene is out of control and there’s enough history to fill several volumes of textbooks. But can’t the French be more humble about it!?”
Countries newly emerged from behind the Iron Curtain tend to feature lower on the list.
Slovenia comes in at number 30 because: “Slovenia is one of Europe’s greenest countries and that’s about it.”
Slovenia is home to copious mountains and ski resorts and famously houses the incredible Lake Bled, a beautiful lake fed by hot springs.
