15 Bizarre Laws From Around Europe



Think the laws in your country are strict or strange? Think again! Some of these crazy laws from Europe and the UK will have you scratching your head. From anything from naming pigs and internet games, to when you can mow your lawn or flush your toilet, countries such as Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and France have very strong views – and laws – on what you can and cannot do. This list might just make you glad that you only have to put up with speed limits and breaking-and-entering!

Switzerland And Toilets

When visiting Switzerland, you’d better make a dash for the toilet at 9.55pm, because using toilets after 10pm can get a bit smelly thanks to their curfew on flushing. And for the guys, no standing up after 10pm either, so get your business over with early in the night.

Italy And Manliness

Italians take their macho men very seriously. So much so, that if a man is caught wearing a skirt, he can be arrested. Maybe they’re just not pairing them with the right shoes.

Greece And Games

In an effort to curb online gaming in Greece, they just made a blanket ban on ALL electronic games, from online chess to Facebook games. A bonus of this is that you won’t get those annoying game requests from any of your Facebook friends in Greece.
