World's Unfriendliest Cities 2015

These cities—"glum," "rude," and "not exactly the kindest"—didn't impress visitors with their people skills.

1. Moscow, Russia

30 of 31

Score: 60.250

How did Moscow, which generally performs quite well in terms of landmarks and culture, slip to the bottom of our “friendly” list? T+L readers didn’t find Muscovites to be particularly helpful. Book a private guide to help you navigate the capital city’s historical sites, including the Kremlin and Izmaylovsky Market. We suspect the city’s notoriously bad traffic and general “aloofness” of the people contributed to its low ranking, as well as its culinary scene, which was also ranked dead last in this year’s poll.
