Which are the happiest countries in the world?
Happy places can be found everywhere around the globe. But some places are happier than others. The United Nations’ World Happiness Report features the ranking of the happiest countries in the world.
And guess who tops this list? The Nordic countries of course!
The happiest country in the world: Finland 🇫🇮
Finland is a place like no other, and the ranking confirms it: The Finns are the happiest people in the world for the 5th time in a row, and Helsinki is the happiest city. Perhaps it is its fantastic nature containing hundreds of thousands of lakes and forests, the love that Finns have for a good cup of coffee or maybe even the amount of saunas there are! One way or another, Finland and the Finns can be proud to say they live in the happiest country in the world! If visiting was not a must, now it is.
Denmark: A well-deserved second place 🇩🇰
Just behind Finland comes Denmark. The country of the Little Mermaid, LEGO and Tivoli was bound to be considered happy one way or another. No trip around Copenhagen ends without a big round of smiles. A place that seems taken from one of the local authors H. C. Andersen’s adventures, Denmark’s nature and stunning landscapes, together with the quality of life, can make anyone feel a special joy unmatched anywhere else.
Norway and Sweden are not far behind 🇸🇪 🇳🇴
Closing the list of Nordic countries, Norway (6th) and Sweden (7th) almost round up the top 10 happiest countries in the world. The standard of living, added to the quality of life and the unique lifestyle of Norwegians and Swedes, contributed to cementing their position as happy countries. A quick trip to Oslo, Bergen or Stockholm is a must to understand the reason behind it.
