  1. Actually that is not true. Maybe these countries are behind economically, say, the top 3 most powerful African countries, but everything considered, are far better to live in than the rest of Africa. Croatia has one of the most beautiful coasts in Europe, some say even the world, and many Hollywood stars spend a portion of their vacation there. Serbia has many natural attractions for such a small country, and is rich with water and food, and a gentle climate. Belgrade, its capital is widely considered as one of the most fun cities in Europe. Montenegro has a 600k population and has its own coastline filled with luxury hotels, and its yearly profit from tourism is enough for them to live comfortably. I dont even want to mention Russia, the county which is organizing the Olympics and FIFA World Cup, and is a country with the biggest reserve of oil and natural gas. In the world. All in all this is a very untrue article, and its sole purpose is to make African nations feel better about themselves.

  2. the croatian picture is meant to represent poverty? Those are old buildings which tourists love to look at and take pictures

  3. Why people are taking pictures of gipsies who love to beg and they live like that so that they can request money and they say, look how poor the country is? I live in Romania and I have not seen a place like that since I was little and a clan of gipsy cramped there. How do you people find these places?
    Anyway, please stay in your rich African countries and do not come in our poor European countries.
