8. Grozny, Chechnya

Grozny, Chechnya

Chechnya declared independence from the USSR in 1991 but Russian troops invaded and continue to prosecute a relentless military campaign in this naturally beautiful country. Two prolonged wars with Russia has totally destroyes this country and caused it to become very dangerous and most of its residents have either fled to other countries or still live in the shells of homes under constant threat from the mafia, local gangs and obviously war. In 2003, United Nations declared Grozny to be “Most Destroyed City on Earth”.

7. Capetown, South Africa

Capetown, South Africa

Capetown is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Southern Africa, but it is also one of the most dangerous too. The reason for this is that South Africa has some great social and economic problems. So the consequence of all those problems is the high crime rate in certain parts of the city and kidnapping, murder and robbery is very common in those parts.

6. St. Louis, United States

St. Louis, United States

Yet another city of the United States of America which is very dangerous. St. Louis is the city which has violent crimes rate higher than the national average (429.4 per 100,000) coming in at 2070 per 100,000 residents.

5. Moscow, Russia

Moscow, Russia

Moscow is famous for its petty crimes, which actually makes it very unsafe. Mercer states that Moscow has the lowest level of personal safety as compared to any city in Europe. The police force is also not very famous for doing its job right!

4. Bogota, Colombia

Bogota, Colombia

Although the security conditions in Colombia have improved quite a lot in recent years, but still violence is very common in its capital. This city is famous for its drug lords and boasts highest violent crime rates in the world. It is also famous for its “kidnap culture”.

3. Lagos, Nigeria

Lagos, Nigeria

Lagos is the former capital of Nigeria and is still one of the largest metropolitan city of Africa, but it has never been safe. Measures have been taken to reduce the ever increasing crime rate, but unfortunately nothing seems to work.

2. Mogadishu, Somalia

Mogadishu, Somalia

 

Since the beginning of Somali Civil War in 1991, this ‘capital’ city has had seen no central government control over it — over most of the country’s territory. The social and economic conditions of Somalia continue to decline, so Mogadishu is considered one of the most lawless and dangerous places in the world.

1. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

The personal safety conditions in Mexico are declining day by day, thanks to the Mafia and all the drug lords! This border town of Juarez has one one of the highest murder rates in the world! It is an extremely dangerous town in which about 2,600 people were killed due to drug related violence alone in 2009. Even the police force is not safe as most of its high-ranking members have been assassinated, and even the military is not a match for the powerful drug cartels.

    This is BS. The United States/Britain/France Imperialists are responsible for most of the violence in the world. Just read Imperialism:The Highest State of Capitalism by Vladimir Lenin.

    Bogota is one of the most pleasant cities to visit. The CIA is behind the drug operations there and terrorism around the world.
