One of the major concerns for people today, is safety. This is especially a concern if you are travelling abroad to a country you are not too familiar with. So today, many people will factor in how safe a country is when deciding on either a holiday destination or a country where they would like to go on business. Here is a list of which countries are generally considered to be the top 10 safest countries to travel to in 2014.
Austria is far less boisterous than its neighbor Germany and is considered to be a remarkably safe place to enjoy magnificent historical architecture and majestic, scenic views of the snow colored Alps. Home to perhaps the best classical composers of all time, the country has something for everyone.
Perhaps surprisingly to most people, 80% of Canadian residents live in urban areas. Despite the vast multi-cultural diversity of its immigrants, the country’s policies of tolerance are well known and this country has one of the best human rights records compared to some of the countries on this list.
This country has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe and 7 out of every 10 people say they feel safe walking on their own at night. Well known for its laid back atmosphere, its residents respect the rights of others where ever they are from.
Known for its scenery, chocolates and watches, this country is also home to five of the safest metropolitan areas on the planet. The country is rightfully proud of its safety records over the years, even in its biggest cities.
This is a country where 8 of 10 people feel safe walking on their own at night. Considering that you will get a heavy sentence for merely spitting on the sidewalk in this country, it is not surprising, due to the strict justice system, that the crime rate here is almost non-existent.
This country has a remarkably low crime rate and is possibly reflected by the fact that there are considered to be no bad areas, even in the major cities like Copenhagen.
Whether you are looking for beautiful scenery or safety, New Zealand can provide both. This is one country where any crime is taken very seriously and therefore maintains a low crime rate.
Apart from stunning scenery and inspiring architecture that you can enjoy for many daylight hours in the summer months, Finland is rich in both wealth and folk culture. It is known for its civil liberties and the ability for all to speak their mind freely, politically.
Whether you are visiting the small fishing villages or the grand fjords, you will find that everybody respects your human rights and personal freedoms alike.
This country treats residents and tourists in the same way, including with regard to security and so perhaps the only to fear here is the chill. Known as the land of fire and ice, you can find plenty of warmth in both its thermal springs and its welcome.
