11. Moscow, Russia
In a recent TripAdvisor survey, Moscow ranked as one of the worst cities for tourists to visit. The ranking criteria included hotel offerings, the friendliness and helpfulness of its citizens, crime rates and value for money. In 2008, Moscow was voted as the most unfriendly city in the world. Moscow also experiences extreme weather conditions during most months, making travel extremely unpleasant. Political corruption and bribery levels are high in Russia’s capital city and street crime rates are increasing. Even the police are known to scam tourists. We recommend visiting neighboring St. Petersburg instead.
