Blessed with a wealth of history, art and architecture, Europe is home to some of the world’s most incredible cultural attractions. But it sucks, too. At least that’s the opinion of some TripAdvisor users, who aren’t at all shy about sharing their criticisms of major European landmarks. Baffling, funny or downright rude, the following 20 reviews offer an alternative take on the continent’s best-loved sights.
20. Big Ben, U.K.
Few landmarks are as iconic as Big Ben, although technically the name refers to the bell, not the tower itself. Overlooking the Palace of Westminster on the River Thames, this famous Gothic revival clock is not only a symbol of London, but of England itself. And it’s instantly recognizable thanks to its repeated portrayal in Hollywood movies. But then again, as foodiesbb points out, a wrist watch works just as well.
