In which countries of the world can you feel safe?

At the World Economic Forum (WEF), which was held at the beginning of 2016 in Davos, the rating of the safest countries was announced. The selection was carried out taking into account the level of crime in each of the countries, the degree of public confidence in law enforcement and the effectiveness of their work. Let's find out which safest countries in the world are in the top ten. And for the more freedom-loving, we recommend to look for the best countries for downshifting.

Portugal

Buildings in the city

Opens the top ten safe countries where it is best to live, sunny Portugal. Perhaps a year ago she would not have been able to take such a high position, but due to the deteriorating situation in the nearby resort countries, for example, in Turkey, France, Egypt, more and more tourists began to come to Portugal. But even in spite of a rather high level of security, there are plenty of cases of theft - especially you should beware of pickpockets.But there are really very few large-scale robberies and car thefts in Portugal.

Oman

Ahead of Portugal, Oman entered the safest countries of the world. This is a Muslim state, therefore there are certain restrictions for tourists, the observance of which guarantees them complete security and will allow to avoid conflicts with local residents - even in the provinces and at night. By the way, Russian tourists are friendly in Oman, but Arabs from other countries with great difficulty receive visas here due to the threat of terrorism.

Singapore

Evening Singapore

The crime rate in Singapore is so low that only the 8th position in the ranking is even surprising. It is possible that this city-state managed to get to the safest countries of the world thanks to a rigid system of fines imposed for the smallest offenses. Tourists often come across this, because a fine can be obtained, for example, even for a piece of paper thrown on the street, and it can be from 300 to one thousand Singapore dollars. And if you get caught again, pay 2,000.

New Zealand

Perhaps the lonely geographical position of the state contributed to this, but in New Zealand there is indeed no terrorism, no conflicts between different communities,and people are accustomed to the fact that respect for other people's freedoms and respect for the rule of law is the norm of human life. Severe offenses and crimes are extremely rare. Residents trust the authorities and the police. And the New Zealanders who went abroad are sure: New Zealand is the best country to live in, so they come back here to start a family.

Luxembourg

Houses by the river

The duchy of Luxembourg was able to bypass many equally developed safe countries of the world - a country with one of the highest rates in terms of life and security. More than 70% of residents consider themselves safe walking the street at night and about the same number of people are satisfied with life in Luxembourg.

Austria

Houses on the shore

The safest countries in the world are Austria, where the crime rate is extremely low, including the threat level of terrorism. Residents mostly regularly comply with the laws, and the police constantly monitor the order on the streets. There are only about 0.6 murders per year for a hundred thousand local residents (in the Russian Federation, for example, this figure is 10).

Iceland

Icelandic houses

Although Iceland has a permit for the free carrying of weapons, the crime rate in the country is one of the lowest in the world.Almost all residents consider themselves to be the middle or working class, which means that they have almost no conflicts due to class differences. Violent crimes are practically absent here: people are not afraid to get into a car to strangers, and parents with a clear conscience leave the children running around the street alone.

UAE

City view

Not much reached second place in the list of the safest countries in the world - the United Arab Emirates. There is practically no crime in the state: you will not meet mass rallies and demonstrations here, you will not see drunk and inadequate people, no one will pester you in a public place, and you can even walk at night. Despite stereotypes, the threat of terrorism is also very low.

Qatar

Beach with palm trees

The second place of Qatar in the ranking contributed to virtually no unemployment, as well as a low degree of terrorist threat and natural disasters. This state managed to overtake almost all of the safest countries in the world, losing only to one, because the environmental situation still represents the danger in Qatar.

Finland

Sunset over the city

But we got to the first place in the ranking of the safest countries in the world. If you are looking for a place where it is best to live, then look at Finland: the crime rate there is as low as possible. Decency is the hallmark of the whole population on which the Finns built their own system of organizing life in the state. Not for nothing goes the saying that for a Finn walking along the street naked is less of a shame than stealing. The police here are working properly, professionally and efficiently, and ordinary citizens do not miss - they do not pass by anything suspicious, but they almost threaten to call the police.
