What would be your ideal European city to live in? Perhaps it’s the one you already call home. Zurich and Geneva have been crowned two of the best cities in Europe for millennials, according to a new study.
The city on the Limmat took overall top spot in the survey by UK consumer research firm NimbleFins, which used data from institutions such as the World Bank, the World Health Organization and Eurostat to compare 24 European cities in four categories relevant to millennials: employment prospects, cost of living/affordability, entertainment, and health and safety.
Zurich won out over Prague, scoring highly for employment and health and safety, though slightly lower for cost of living. But because it had the highest average wages of all the cities studied, it was still relatively affordable compared with places such as London.
Hot on their heels, Geneva was the third-best city for millennials looking to start their careers and enjoy a good quality of life. It also stood out for its high wages, safe and healthy environment and entertainment options. Completing the top five were Berlin in fourth and Vienna in fifth, with larger cities such as Paris and London down in 18th and 22nd, respectively.
