According to a report by the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime in 2019, two Hungarian cities are among the deadliest in Europe as they have some of the highest rates of murder in Europe. However, it is still miles behind America when it comes to crimes rates as the “deadliest” city in Europe has less than one-tenth of the homicides per 100,000 than the U.S. city with the highest homicide rate. It is considered relatively safe.

However, in a list compiled by Fox News, Budapest and Debrecen, two of Hungary’s most important cities, are among the deadliest cities in Europe. Budapest, the capital city ranks number 9 on the list and has the murder rate of 2.2 per 100,000. The Hungarian Prosecutor’s office reported 99 murders in 2017. 

Budapest, with a population of about 1.75 million people, is a tourist magnet and is often referred to as the ‘Paris of the East’. Still, police reported about 62,870 crimes in 2017.

  1. As an American in Ohio, I can certainly confirm that major cities here have problems. For example, the city of Columbus had about 25 murders in the first 3 months of last year alone.

  2. That’s because in Ohio there are a lot of Slovenians and Slovenia, as we all know, is a very deadly country. It has the sixth deadliest city in Europe Celje – with a grand total of ONE murder in year 2016.

  3. Slovenians are a tiny group of people in Ohio. In Columbus, people of African decent make up 28 percent of population and are responsible for about 70 percent of the violent crime.
