Czechia in the top 15 safest countries in the world
A new study by the Institute for Economics and Peace has revealed the most dangerous and most peaceful countries on Earth for 2023. And Czechia did great again - it secured the 12th place! The annual Global Peace Index ranks 163 independent states and territories.

As every year, the 17th edition of the annual study has shown that the Czech Republic is a safe and peaceful tourist destination. In a positive sense, Czechia surpassed all neighboring states except for Austria (5th position). Germany claimed the 15th spot, Slovakia the 26th, and Poland secured the 29th position. The coveted title of the most peaceful country in the world once again went to Iceland, and there was no change in the position of the most dangerous country, which Afghanistan retained this year as well.

Europe - the most peaceful tourist destination

Unfortunately, two European states found their place among the top 10 most dangerous countries on the planet. The results of the study were, of course, influenced by the war in Russia and Ukraine, making Russia the 6th most dangerous country in the world and Ukraine the 7th. Despite this, Europe remains the most peaceful region in the world and is home to 7 of the 10 most peaceful countries.
