Poland - Fourth Best Place to Live

Here's an interesting one that's close to my heart and family. You see my dad was born in Poland. He would have been pleased to read this and to see this.

The Warsaw Business Journal announced today that Poland came in as the fourth Best Place to Live in Europe. It owes this ranking to: a low retirement age, long holidays and being one of the cheapest places to live in Europe with a low cost fo living.

Poland even finished ahead of Germany and England on the list. The list is the Quality of Life Index compiled by uSwitch. The article didn't really give any further details about who or what uSwitch is. But they did say that 16 factors were used to compare European Countries and determine rank order. Those factors included - net income; sales taxes; vacation allowance; working hours; life expectancy; costs of gas, diesel and electricity.

France came in top spot followed by Spain and Denmark in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
